How to Rescue and Save a wet mobile phone – and what not to do

How to Rescue and Save a wet mobile phone – and what not to do

Most domestic accidents have seen people lose their smartphones in water, you’ll need a solution, fast. Keep these tips in mind for when it happens.

Our Phones usually slip out of our hands or pockets, and most times drop on wet floor or even in a bowl of water from time to time or you could decide to jump in the pool forgetting that your mobile phone is still in your pocket.


How to Resue and Save a wet mobile phone - and what not to do


What to do

While dismantling your mobile phone completely, drys out the phone more effectively, but doing so will not only void your warranty, chances are you may jeopardise your phone if you’re not careful as it requires special tools, so I don’t recommend it. Instead, follow these steps below

  • Do not turn back on your phone right away (keep it off until you know it’s totally dry or if phone is still on immediately take off the battery).


  • Remove all peripherals from the device (back cover, case, battery, headphones and any other removable gadget).

  • Use a vacuum to drain moisture from the device (Try to get as much of the water out of it as possible).

  • Use a substance with a high affinity for drawing out moisture (An inexpensive option is to place the phone in a bowl or bag of uncooked rice or desiccant “usually found with new shoes” for at least 24hrs or just cover the phone in towels).


What not to do

  • A popular fast-track method of drying out a wet mobile phone is to apply heat to the device in other ways or likely use a hairdryer. While this methods might successfully evaporate all the moisture still sitting within the handset, it risks becoming too hot and causing damage to the components.

  • Another bad recommendation is to place your cell phone in a freezer, wrapped in paper towel to prevent frost damage. Supposedly, the reduced conductivity of water when close to freezing temperatures will stop your phone from short circuiting when in use.

If the above mentioned steps didn’t work, kindly visit a professional phone repair with a good history of success with smartphones.
