How To Save Your Wet Cell Phone?

Posted on 25 March 2010

Dropped your cell phone in the toilet and wondering whether it will ever work again? Good news is that there are some chances that it might show some signs of life again, even if the wet cell phone seems dead. However, make sure you react fast enough as the longer the water sits inside, greater are the chances that it will destroy the phone for good.

Even if you have your phone under warranty, it probably won’t cover water damage. And don’t try to trick your mobile company as well as most of the phones nowadays come with a water sticker that permanently changes color if it gets wet.

Whenever anyone gets his/her phone wet, the first thing they do is to switch it on to see whether it works or not, which is just a suicidal attempt for the phone as it causes short circuiting of the phone.

Thus the first step should be to remove the battery immediately. Once you have taken out the battery safely, you have to get rid of the moisture that has gone inside the phone. The best way to do this is by using a desiccant to dry away any leftover moisture.

The most convenient and the best choice is to use uncooked rice. Simply leave the phone , together with its disconnected battery, inside a bowl of grains overnight.

But remember never to apply heat to the phone. This means that simply avoid using any hair dryers, ovens, microwaves or long exposures to direct sunlight. Although the heat will evaporate the moisture, it can also deform the components and melt adhesives.
