How To Revive A Phone That Fell Inside Water

We are in raining season and this is the time that many people's phone accidentally gets wet either by dropping inside water or any other means. It is very frustrating and can paint the whole day black for the phone owner because virtually every phone that drops inside water automatically refuses to switch ON or work normally again and trying to force it to come up can tremendously increase the damage on the phone.

So here is the simple and basic steps you will take immediately your phone is soaked with water.

SECTION ONE (normal procedure)

STEP 1:  Remove the phone from the water as quickly as possible

STEP 2:  Clean it thoroughly with dry cotton cloth

STEP 3:  Remove the battery, sim card, memory card immediately

STEP 4:  Place the phone under the sun for 24 or 48 hours 

NOTE: Don't try switching it ON before this time!

STEP 5:  After the stipulated time, take it and insert the battery first; switch it ON. It should come up

SECTION TWO (funny but interesting method mostly for non removable battery phones)

STEP 1: Take the phone out of the water immediately

STEP 2: Wipe the surface of the phone with a paper towel

STEP 3: If its an iphone, do not remove the battery, because doing that would void the warranty, after wiping the surface of the phone just place the phone in a bag of uncooked rice for 24 hours, it will absorb the water, bring it out afterwards and you can now switch on 
If its not an iphone, ensure to remove the battery and any other detachable part of the phone before putting it in a bag of uncooked rice.

However, if all the above mentioned process didn't work for you, kindly take your phone to specialists to dry it.

Meanwhile, it's always advisable to always put on your rain jacket in Winter as it will also help protect your mobile phones and other important gadgets.
Good luck.
