How to save a wet cell phone

If your cell phone gets wet immediately get a bag of rice and pour it into a ziplock bag or any large sack or container. put your cell phone in and cover the phone with the rice. it is best to use a ziplock bag so that you can shake it up. make sure that the battery is out of the phone and that the back is left off of it. how this works is, the rice gets into the phone and absorbs the water, so that it will not cause the phone to become waterlogged.

Smartphone submerged in water

Make sure that you immediately remove it from the water and remove the battery and the simcard / memory card from your cellphone. Then towel dry it and put it in a ziplock bag with about a cup of uncooked rice. Leave it there for 1 - 2 days to let the rice absorb the moisture. Then after 1 - 2 days, cross your fingers and try to turn on your cellphone. =)

my samsung propel got moisture inside..will turn on and begin to load but wont finish loading. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

THE ONLY THING THAT YOU CAN DO IS get a insurance replacement if you have insurance .. or you can try putting the phone in a ziplock bag and pour white rice in the bag with the phone and the rice can pull the moisture out of the phone you have to leave sitting for about three days ..
