Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
There are times we have all got our cell phones wet. A lot of times we might be brushing are teeth, and were so worried about missing a phone call that we put it by the sink, and before you know it your elbow hits the phone and right in the sink it goes. OR the toilet...ewww
Your heart races, and you can't seem to even grab the phone fast enough to get it out of the sink. It almost becomes that old restaurant saying of the 10 second rule. You know the one that that says, if you drop a piece of food on the floor and pick it up with in 10 seconds that it is alright, because the germs have not got on it yet.
Well, with a phone it is kind of like the same thing, except my idea works with patience and will save you some money and save you those very important phone calls you might be missing .
Like: Wife calling cause your out of bread, or Best friend calling to brag about the Giants should of won, but referee made a bad call. You know those real important calls. Here is where I can help you.
First of after you get your phone wet like drop in shower, sink, puddle, or rained on or even the toilet.
You take it out of course, then first thing is take the battery out set it aside and send card out. Get a blow dryer, turn on med heat, and have it back at least 6 to 8 inches, and dry it in every area you can. Battery compartment included.
Next step. Is get your self a lunch size plastic baggy or plastic container that has a lid. And some regular white rice. Fill bag or container with the rice about 3/4 full.
Put the whole phone in the bag or container, and with the battery after drying off the battery by hand.(do not put send card in, this dry by hand and set aside) make sure phone and battery is completely sum-urged under the rice. then close the plastic bag or lid on container air tight. Set on counter in cool dry area. Let sit overnight or at least 10 to 15 hours.
Then after that, take phone out and battery, dust off rice grains good. I like to use a can of compressed air ( get at any computer section of any store that sells computers) and blow out phone good. Now put battery back in phone and send card and DO NOT TURN ON YET, but put on charger and wait until completely charged and then turn phone on and you should have phone working again.
If not, then is possible might have to repeat or you have damage some circuits that need to be replaced.
This will solve that wet phone problem most the time, so you can get back to those ever so important calls, like friend calling to let you know who the runner up is on american idol..... Hope this helps MIke
