What to do if your phone drops in Water

Mistakes happen on a daily basis. From forgetting a document at home to sending a text message to a wrong number and your priced phone dropping in water. Whoops! This may be a costly mistake that may probably damage your phone. In other unforeseen circumstances, there may be a downpour in Port Harcourt and you may be drenched, thus, affecting your phone. Not to worry, I will share some tips on what to do if your phone is drenched in water. As we all know water is no friend with electronic devices.  


Take your phone out of water/pocket
Don’t lament about your phone that just drank water. What you should do is to take it out of water or your pocket. Importantly, don’t attempt to switch it on. This is to stop water from flowing into the sensitive part of your phone.   

Take out the removable parts
Take out the battery, sim card(s), the casing and other removable parts. There is no need to remove any screw. Limit yourself to only the detachable parts. Ensure that you take caution not to allow water into the phone.

Don’t Blow it
This may completely condemn the phone. Don’t use a blow dryer or blow air using your mouth into the phone. This would no doubt cause adverse harm to your smartphone.

Dry the phone
This is a very critical stage that would determine if you would take your phone to a repairer or not. Dry your phone in the sun. This is not saying that you should place it directly. Severe sun rays may affect the Liquid Crystal Display Screen. It is, however, worthy of note that many wet phones/devices would properly function after drying. 

Attempt to power it on
Your phone would be dried within an hour or even less. Assemble the different parts you detach. Then try to power on your phone. If it powers on, attempt to perform the normal activities like making calls, surfing the internet, sending text messages and other actions.

If your phone does not power on…
If your phone does not power on. Then you have to check if there is still warranty on the phone. Most brand new devices usually come with a one year warranty. That is why it is logical to purchase new phones. This is another reason you should be very conscious not to allow water get into the phone panel. This may actually nullify your warranty. This may result in you paying more to repair your phone or patronizing quacks.
