Hello Fellow Mi Fans,

Have you ever accidentally dropped your cell phone in the sink, or even worse - the toilet? Whether you've dropped it in the toilet or your friend shoved you in the pool with your phone in your pocket, getting your phone wet can be a nightmare. Here are few tips to let you know how to save your smartphone after getting it wet.


1. Taking the phone out of the water immediately:

The first thing is to grab your phone quickly and turn it off immediately, as leaving it on can cause it to short circuit – if it has been in water, assume it is waterlogged whether it is still working or not. Ports for hands free kit, tiny hole for microphone, charging, usb cable connectivity and the plastic covers on cell phones even though tight can freely allow water to enter the phone in a just a few seconds of time.

2. Removing Casing, SIM and SD Card:

After turning the phone off you should remove the protective casing if any and remove your SIM and microSD cards from their slots. If your phone comes with a removable battery, you are suggested to remove that as well.

3. Drying your phone with a soft rag or towel:

You need to use a cloth, sleeve or paper towel to dab your phone dry. Please avoid spreading the liquid around, because that could push it into more of the phone's openings. Gently wipe off as much water as possible without dropping the phone. Wipe down using a towel or paper towel, trying not to clog the paper in the gaps and grooves of the phone. Keep wiping gently to remove as much of the remaining water as possible.


4. Using vacuum cleaner:

If the water damage is more extensive, you can use a vacuum to carefully suck out water stuck from the cracks that are harder to get at. Make sure any small parts, such as the microSD card, SIM card, or battery, are out of the way before attempting this.



5. Using a substance with a high affinity for drawing out moisture:

Rice is a great water absorbent and it dries the water out more speedily. If you have uncooked, plain rice, immerse the phone in a bowl of it and put it in the refrigerator. The dry rice will pull all the moisture out of the phone, and the refrigerator will dry out the rice. Don't forget to rotate the phone to a different position every hour until you go to sleep. This will allow any water left inside to run down and hopefully find an opening to escape.

6. Letting the phone sit on absorbent towels, napkins or other paper:

After removing the phone from the rice or desiccant (or if you were not able to use either method), place the phone flat on an absorbent material. Remember that the goal is to evacuate all of the moisture and humidity from the device. Check the absorbent material every hour for 4 to 6 hours. If moisture is evident, repeat the vacuuming step and desiccant steps.


7. Final Testing:

Let your phone dry for a day or two. Do not be tempted to switch it on see if it still works. Put your SIM card in an old phone, or ask a friend or family if they have a spare that you can borrow. After a couple of days, you can remove the phone from the rice back, insert the battery into the phone and switch the phone on. If your phone doesn't turn on, try charging it. If it doesn't charge, the battery may be damaged. You could try a replacement battery, or consider taking your smartphone to a repair shop to be checked by a professional.
