Dropping a cell phone into the water is an unfortunate and more common error or accident than imagined for many users. Sometimes we might be careless or in a hurry and accidentally drop it. What can we do when this wet nightmare happen? Can the mobile phone still be salvaged?
In most cases, if this happens, users still have a very good chance to rescue their cell phone. Of course, there are a few things you need to remember. First of all, you need to remove your battery immediately from your cell phone. You must not turn on the cell phone as the power supply from the batter might cause a short circuit in your cell phone. Just remove the battery, and whatever you do, don’t try to test whether your cell phone can still send sms or make a call.
Once the battery is removed, dismantle your phone and dry or clean it as much as you can. You can turn a hair dryer on your soaked cell phone and let it dry under a desk lamp / fan for a few days. Some cell phone owners had also been known to use the unusual method of leaving their soaked phone in an oven and guess what? It worked. After drying the phone, you can reassemble it and reinstall the battery. Normally your cell phone will be as good as new and will have recovered its functions.
