5 TIPS TO SAVE A WET PHONE

Do not switch on the device to see if it is working.

Remove the back panel, battery, SIM card and memory card from the phone and dry it with a towel.

Place the phone in an air-tight bag full of raw rice for absorbing moisture over night or even a couple of days.

Do not use a hair dryer or vacuum cleaner to dry the phone.

Keep it under a strong light such as a table lamp that can evaporate the moisture.
