What not to do after Lakewood CA 90711 dropping your phone in water The following actions can mean the difference between a totaled phone or a survival story. You better be careful what you do.

Electrical components don’t play well with water when operating. Don’t plug it in either! Lakewood CA 90711 For the same reason. Don’t press any keys. This can push water further into the phone. It’s best to try to mess with the phone as little as possible. Don’t shake or blow into the device. This could also push water into deeper areas of the phone. Especially try to avoid blow driers �” not only because of the blowing part, but also because of the following Lakewood CA 90711 point. Do not apply any heat to the phone. Remember excessive heat can also damage the phone. You don’t want to add more damage! Don’t move the phone around too much. Same deal; you don’t want the water moving around inside the phone. Disassemble the water damaged phone Don’t mistake this step with “take the whole darn phone apart”! What I mean is that you should remove Lakewood CA 90711 everything that is user-removable. If you back cover is removable, take it off. Similarly, try to remove the battery (if you can), SIM card and SD card. Lay it all out in the paper towel.

It might help with drying up every single piece faster. Just be careful, if you don’t know what you’re doing this could cause more harm than good.

You could try a vacuum cleaner Of course, there are areas the paper towel can’t access. And while we told you not to blow anything into the phone, we didn’t tell you not to suction the water out. In fact, a vacuum cleaner Lakewood CA 90711 can suck off bits of water from the phone without too much risk. Just make sure the suctioning doesn’t make the phone move around excessively. Oh, and try not to use one as big as the one in the picture! Time to dry it out The hardest part is coming, because it involves leaving the phone untouched for an extended period of time. This means you can’t use Lakewood CA 90711 your smartphone! If you have another phone you can borrow, just make sure the SIM card is completely dried out and stick it into the working handset. Otherwise, just resort to smoke signals, public phones and all that archaic stuff. So how do you dry your phone out? You could just leave the phone on top of the counter or inside a drawer, but some people like Lakewood CA 90711 giving it a little help. The idea is to put it in an environment that will ease its drying process. A very common practice is to put the phone in a Ziploc bag full of rice and let it rest there for about 2-3 days.

The idea is that rice is very good at Lakewood CA 90711 absorbing humidity in the air, making the phone’s environment drier and hence helping dry out the device. But there are alternatives that could be better. Among better options are silica gel packs, which are those little packets you often find in shoes or electronics boxes (and you can’t eat). It’s not like all of us have these laying around, though, but if you think ahead of time you, Lakewood CA 90711 could get good deals on Amazon.
