What To Do When Your Phone Gets Wet

Happens to the best of us.

In fact, years ago my wife dropped her iPod Touch in the toilet and was humiliated. Since then, I’ve heard many, many stories. One involves me being handed eight phones by a man who works in waste management and sucked them out of portable toilets at a local concert venue.

If you happen to drop your mobile device (whether it be iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or Samsung Galaxy) in the drink (or the john), here are a few things to consider:

1. Say a quick prayer.

2. Do not attempt to turn the device back on.

3. Place it as quickly as possible in a bag of uncooked rice (without gravy) and seal.

4. Contact me at Midcoast iPhone Repair and I can take it from there.

Successful water damage repair is (at best) a 50/50 proposition, but these best practices will help you increase the probability that we can resurrect your device, if only to get remove valuable data.
