Smartphone Fall in Water.

Sri Lanka people take much care about thier Smartphone. So they give special expensive cover and keep it in a clean place.
Some time it used to expose to water unknowingly due to rain or fall in water buckts and so on.

So if your Smartphone happened to fall in water or get wet due to rain or got a splash of water, don't get panicked.
Don't try to switch on and see if the Smartphone is working or not.
It is risky because when you switch on a wet Smartphone, it can make new circuits and can destroy the device and its memory.

Take it to your service provider if they are near to you and the Smartphone have the warranty period.
If there is no warranty period, they may charge you few bucks more for their services.

Be cool, open the back cover and remove the battery, SIM card and the SD Memory card.
If you can't remove the battery and it is only for authorized people, then visit the service department and report them the situation.
They may advice you what to do.

If you had removed the battery cover and separated the phone battery along with SIM and the SD card take a soft clothe and clean the water thoroughly as much as possible. If you have a small hand vacuum cleaner, use it on the holes to suck the water vapor.

Get two separate cellophane or plastic bags. Put dried white rice in them.
Gently place the Smartphone in one of this bag and close it airtight.
Likewise in the other bag too put dried white rice and place the battery and the SD card gently and in make it airtight.
Leave these bags in a place for 24 hours better 48 hours.

If you can get some silica gel packets, from your pharmacist, or from your A/C repair person, you can use this instead of rice.

After one or two days insert the SIM, SD memory card and the battery and switch it on.
If you are lucky, the device will start to function smoothly.

Otherwise you have to take it to the authorized repair service centre.
