My iPhone 5s does not seem to be finding my SIM. I have test4ed my SIM and it works in other 02 handsets. I think my phone maybe water logged as i woke up to find it in a puddle of water. I would rather not have to send my phone anywhere. Are there any quick fix sugestions?

Put it in a bag of rice and put it somewhere warm (on a radiator or in airing cupboard etc) however, the prognosis isn't good I'm afraid.....

The bag of rice method is your best bet, but you'll have to leave it there for some time, probably at least 2-3 days. If you found your phone sitting in a puddle of water, I wouldn't hold out much hope for it. I'd start thinking about a replacement, if I were you.

You woke up to find it in a puddle of water? Sorry, I find that so funny, I often wake up in strange places with various and numerous ladies LOL

Either buy another iPhone or pay off your device plan then you can upgrade to a new phone
