4 Tips for Dealing With a Wet Phone, Arlington, Texas

These days, cell phones are a lifeline connecting us to the modern world. While it may have seemed strange several years ago, many people rely on these pocket-sized devices for everything from navigation to telling time. Therefore, if you wind up with a broken phone, the hassle of the loss can be significant. Some of the most common incidents involve spilling beverages over them or accidentally dropping the phone into a sink, puddle, or another form of water. The following guide explains what to do if your smartphone gets wet.

A Guide to Reviving a Wet Phone

1. Retrieve It & Turn It Off

As soon as your phone falls in the pool, toilet, or a bowl of punch, take it out immediately. The longer it sits in the liquid, the more likely you’ll be left with a dead device. Then, as soon as you can, power it off to prevent a short circuit.

2. Open & Drain It

3. Dry It & Let It Rest

Let the phone air dry in a cool, non-humid space. If you want, direct a small fan toward it to speed up this process. Whatever you do, don’t turn the device on—let it rest for a few days and then plug it in to charge. It may surprise you and power on like normal.

4. Take the Broken Phone in for Repairs

However, if after this extended hiatus, it still hasn't revived, consider taking the broken phone to a tech repair store. They might yet be able to restore it to its former condition, in the process saving you a significant amount of money on a new device.
