    Hi

    After a little swimming in the pool and drying it under the sun all day everything works except sim cards. Can someone who had the same problem advise me on what can I do to try to fix it please? Thanks

    1. Try a different SIM
    2. Let the phone dry longer. Common wisdom is to stick it in a sealed container with dry (uncooked) rice and leave it for a couple of days, with the battery removed.

    Then I'm afraid your phone is toast. Water and electronics don't go well together.

    I just ordered a SIM/SD Card Reader replacement for the S3 on Amazon for 5 pounds. Its pretty easy to replace it, I hope it works

    Try cleaning the contacts. Maybe the water caused some oxidation and is keeping it from making good contact.
