I was just switching my sim card from one phone to another and I stupidly dropped it into a glass of water. I pulled it out straight away. I don't want to put it into my phone yet as its still wet. Do you guys think it'll still work?

It's a sim card plastic and metal contacts what's the need of putting it in an airing cupboard?? You dry it with a cloth and sorted

It may shrink. The bit that seems to be plastic is more like compressed cardboard.
