Exclamation blackberry got wet, will SIM have all data?

as the title says my verizon blackberry tour got wet and will get halfway on the loading screan and restart in a continuous loop, i tried the rice but it is not working. in my tour it had the sim card and 2 gig card, its on verizon and i want to know if all of my data (numbers, pictures, videos, etc...) will all be there? im not familiar with verizons because they recently started using the SIM card when i got my blackberry.

Hey, compaq laptop. Long time no see.

As for your question, no. The SIM card is only there for when you go overseas and use a GSM network.

What Oed said.

Verizon is a CDMA network so their GSM equipped phones are for "World Phone" use. Unlike GSM native phones the SIM card serves no purpose unless you go oversea's and you activate service via a International SIM (or feature).

If you used the Verizon Backup Assistant, you will still have some of your numbers. Depending on how recently you backed it up with new numbers you added, you might just have a bunch of older numbers from the first time you used it.

It has come in handy for me a few times so far.

Next time that happens get 99% rubbing alcohol, put in it a container and drop you phone in it and let it sit for a little bit(you can try it now, it might work) The alcohol makes the water dissipate

Dont do this.

If you saved the info to the SIM it should still be there even after getting it wet. The SIM also allows it to work all over the world as previously mentioned. But if you didnt save your contacts to your SIM you more than likely lost them.
