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. =)

PHONE WAS DROPED IN WATER


Immediately remove the battery and as much as the case parts as you can. Now fill a bowl of white rice (dried not cooked) and put the phone under it for a day or 2.
After the 2 days, put everything back together and try to turn it on. Try also to charge it.
This is not 100% but it's the best bet you have.
Good luck!

Phone got splashed by water, now the light won't work


Dry the phone, battery, sim card, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

Put it in a ziplock bag of uncooked rice for several weeks. And make sure the battery is out of it. So put in the battery and phone but they should be apart.
