You May Be Able to Save Your Cell Phone If You Accidentally Dropped It Into Water If You Act Quickly

Mar 1, 2008
In this modern highly technological world, there is probably one thing that we rely on even more than a personal computer or a laptop, and that would definitely be our cell phones. They are created in kinds of forms, with loads of neat and handy stuff built right into them.

We can buy them with internet connection, access to music downloads, emails, address books, picture capabilities, and text messaging. They can help us with so many things. Many times if we can not locate them, if they are damaged, lost, or stolen, you can feel so out of touch. The thought of having to locate and use a pay phone is really unthinkable.

Warranties that come with the purchase of a new cell phone might cover a number of things, but many times water damage is not among them. This is usually because this specific incident is through no fault of the manufacturer. The fact that your phone will probably not be replaced under a warranty is bad enough, but one more thing is the knowledge that all your information stored in it is gone, or at least you might think.

Most of the time after someone drops their cell phone in water or if it had something spilled on it you may think that it is lost forever. In most cases they are just thrown away. This is not necessarily what you should do. If the cell phone is only wet by water, there is the hope that when left alone and it has been given several days, it will sometimes dry out and will function perfectly.

This is not a given in every case. If the cell phone was wet by a different liquid, such as soda or fruit juice that will dry sticky, just letting it dry out will not usually make it work.

After you attempt to dry it out and it still will not work, there may be one more option. To go along with the leaps in cell phone technology, the repair methods have gotten better also. There are a lot of businesses that might attempt to repair your cell phone and save it from liquid damage.

In a lot cases they might even get to retrieve the valuable information. This can save you a lot of time reinstalling all that information. It always cost you money for having it fixed, but in the end it may be less costly than buying a new phone. It is much better than throwing it away because with that action there is no hope.
