How to dry a wet cell phone

If a cellphone ever gets wet usually its thought that the cell phone is dead but its not the case if you follow the bellow instruction in case your cell got wet:

Dry out a wet cell phone by taking out the battery and SIM card and placing all of the parts in a zip locked bag or any other plastic bag with uncooked rice for 24 to 48 hours. Avoid putting wet cell phones in the oven, as it may melt the plastic. Remember never turn your phone on before that time or if your phone is wet and its still on then remove the battery immediately that will save your phone.

Wet Cell Phone
Immediately remove the phone from the water,turn off the cell phone remove the battery and SIM card. When you have driedthe cell phone by putting in a warm sunny place for several days or in front ofa warm fan heater for several hours then reassemble the phone. Hopefully itwill work properly but if does not work then it is faulty and you need a newcell phone.

My Safelink Wireless phone got wet while I was out in a recent storm and hasn't worked since. What do you suggest I do?

Not a good thing to happen, you can try taking battery and covers off and leaving the phone in a warm dry place for a few days and hope that all the internal componts will dry and that they have not been damaged. Otherwise you will have to replace the phone.

Check the battery first, connect into charger. If phone was wet, you need to clean it in isopropanol. Or just dry for few days (you can use hair dryer) carefull to dont overheat phone. Even if you think phone is dry it can be still wet. Check if connectors from charger are not dirty. (Check charger, and battery) best way is to borrow battery from friends phone

Hi i dropped my cell in a bucket could u assist me also i put in the hair dryer to dry the phone once after that i also turned the cell on as i was not aware of wat to do further and suddenly it started to...

hi there!

sorry to hear that =( dont turn on a phone right after it gets wet. it will be grounded. you have to blow dry it enough (turn on, turn off the blower, dont let it heat up much, just let air blowing it) or let it sit in front of an electric fan. if you know how to open it up, get the housing (casing) of the phone, get the battery, simcard let them all dry for half a day. (better if you can bring it to your local technician since they have tools to use to open up the whole phone and let dry its inside). but yeah, the best suggestion would be to take it to a local shop so they can check if its already grounded and dead or if they can still make use of its chip and all.
