10 Steps On How To Save A Phone Submerged In Water.

Got your phone submerged in water? Cry no more. Submerging your phone in water isn’t the end of it. You can actually save your phone by yourself. Do not hesitate, follow these steps below;

  • Step 1

    Get your cell phone out of the water and remove the battery immediately. This reduces the risk of a short circuit.
  • Step 2

    Remove the cell phone’s SIM card quickly, as well, if you have an older model cell phone where the SIM card is easily accessible. If you cannot get the SIM card out quickly, skip this step.
  • Step 3

    Dry your phone and removed parts with an absorbent cloth. Be careful not to damage any internal components, just gently pat everything dry.
  • Step 4

    Blast your cell phone, battery and SIM card with a can of compressed air to remove any remaining water the cloth did not absorb.
  • Step 5

    Fill a large bowl or plastic bag full of white rice.
  •  Step 6

    Submerge the cell phone, battery and SIM card (if removed) into the rice until completely covered.
  • Step 7

    Leave the cell phone, battery and SIM card in the rice overnight, but preferably for 24 to 36 hours.
  • Step 8

    Remove the cell phone and its parts from the rice after the allotted time period.
  • Step 9

    Blast the rice dust off of each part with the can of compressed air.
  • Step 10

    Reassemble your cell phone and turn it on to see if it is working.
