Hi, I was hoping that someone would know how to help me, my issue is that i had an sony xperia and since Jan 2018 started to use whatsapp on it. Fantastic everything was good - I could talk to my family abroad - share recent pictures, just like that!!!!
I did do regular backups..... but not being super tech savvy I don't know where they have backed up to???????
So on Monday, I stupidly had my phone in my back pocket and when I went to the toilet - plop down the loo went my phone!!!!!!!! So the situation is... my phone won't switch on I think it has been completely drowned and is deader than dead.... I have still got the sim card and that does work in a different phone. (whoop whoop) however when I installed whatsapp it has not asked me to restore anything, so does anyone know how or even if , it is possible to restore my old conversations, videos and pictures. The sim card is the same number so please please if anyone knows how to do this, it would certainly put a massive smile on my face as I am very gutted over the loss of my phone, and all the photos etc on it
Many many thanks to anyone who can help xx

Did you try to save your old (wet)
Phone by drying it out with the dry rice trick?
Give it a try, it really does work!
