How to save your cell phone if it fell into water

If you dropped your cell phone in water, take the cell phone out of the water quickly. Switch off the cell phone; take out the battery and SIM card from it.

  • Place the phone in a bowl or re-closeable zipper bag of uncooked rice overnight or for 24 hours. The phone should be completely covered with rice. Rice absorbs moisture.
  • If possible use desiccants that absorb moisture better than rice. Add a desiccant packet, such as silica gel, into the re-closeable bag and let it stay for 24 hours. Then restart the phone.
