Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Did you phone fall into water? Help is on the way.

If you have a cell phone or a cordless phone and it fell into water here is a tip.
Put the phone in a full box of rice for a minumin of 3-7 days. After day number 3 you could take it out and check if it working again. If not just leave it a bit longer.

(My cellphone went through a washing machine load and then was in rice for 5 days and is working just like before the screen is on and all is working.)

Digitalis device does not work I fell into the water

Put it into a zip lock bag full of rice. Let it sit over night. The rice will absorb the moisture from your device. Try it the next day. Good luck!

i phone isn't working....it is not starting....water fell on it....just tell ...can it be repaired.???? please and thank you

after it got wet and you tried to turn it on, most likely you will need a new hardware, since some circuits got short. but after getting it wet and you did not turn it on and make sure its dry(inside out) there is a big chance that it will turn on as normal. try to put in a box with rice for a 3 days or so, rice will absorb the moisture from your phone.

disassemble it as much as you can. leave it in a dry warm environment for about a week to dry out. put it back together in about a week. charge up the battery and power it up. cross your fingers it may work.

p.s. was it on when it fell in the water ?
