ANSWER #1 of 3

Hi Bananagirl,

Last weekend I accidently fell into my pool with my Motorola Razr in my pocket. My phone is toast, but my SIM card survived. I pulled the card out immediately and let it dry outdoors for a couple hours before trying it in another phone.

Still better to keep cell phones and SIM cards away from water!

Hi bananagirl,

Yup. It sure can. The sim card holds all of the important information from the phone, so saving it is really worthwhile.
