How to Save a Drowned Smart Phone


One of the worst possible things that can happen to your smartphone is that you drop it in water. This is something that happens far more often than you might think. If you suffer water damage to your phone, it can render it completely useless. The screen can go off and the device might never turn back on. However, there are some steps you can take toward saving a drowned smartphone.

First of all, if you drop your phone in water or it gets wet as a result of an accidental drink spill, you should immediately ensure that it is not plugged into a charger. If it is, unplug it immediately. If your device is still on, turn it off as well. Dry it off as best as you can with a towel and then retrieve a large bowl and fill it with dried, uncooked rice. Place your smartphone inside and make sure to submerge it until you can no longer see it at all. Leave the phone in there overnight. Dry rice can easily suck out all of the moisture so that your phone will be restored. After 24 hours, check the smartphone and turn it on. It should work fine.
