How To Handle A Water Damaged Cell Phone The Right Way

Mar 12, 2008
Cell phones are absolutely everywhere today. You will see people driving in their cars talking on one all the time. Although it is really not recommended that this be done, some people simply can not resist. There are definitely no age barriers either.

In the past, is was common to see business men with cell phones, but today everyone from senior citizens to grade school kids have one of their own.

The most advanced cell phone combinations that do several things are an even part of our lives. They have photo capabilities, address book, internet options for emails, text messaging, and can play our music.

The really hard core cell phone junkies are so freaked out if their cell phone will not pick up a signal, is stolen, or is damaged. It may appear crazy to many, but if you happen to be someone that must depend on your cell phone, these difficulties are serious circumstances.

Water hazards are one of the scariest things for cell phone users. Most of the time a cell phone's guarantee will not cover water damage. This is bad enough, but another result is losing all the various data that is likely stored in them.

It is so discouraging to have to get a new phone, paid for out of your own money, and must go through the aggravating process of putting in all your information again.

Many of those water saturated phones get thrown into the garbage because people will assume since it was soaked from dropping it in the tub, had water spilled all over it, or it fell in a pool, that it is most likely destroyed. If it was soaked by soda or any other sticky beverage, it may be ruined.

If it was simply water, there could be hope. Many times, if you just let them alone and give them a little while to dry out completely, it will work just as it did, if you are lucky, but not every time.

Even if this does not make the phone work it may still be able to be restored. There are repair sources where you can send it that will try to restore your water wet phones and in many cases can return your phone's history as well.

This may cost you a little bit of money to get done, but depending on the cost of a top of the line cell phone that can do a lot of things the repair amount could still be more cost efficient than acquiring a new phone. When your cell phone gets an unexpected soaking, just be patient and see if it fixes itself. When it has dried out and still will not work get it to a cell phone doctor for CPR, cell phone repair.
