Water Damage to Your Mobile Phone

A Comprehensive Guide

How to deal with water damage to your Mobile Phone

We have all experienced that surge of panic after dropping our iPhones into the water. It may not be as bad as we think, so don’t panic. If you act quickly and immediately take your mobile phone to 3C’s repair specialists, your phone may still be able to be repaired. If that is not an option, say you dropped your mobile phone in the water late at night, you can prevent further damage and increase your chance of getting it working again. Here are the steps you need to follow:

Take immediate action

Modern mobile phones are not waterproof but water-resistant due to their metal frames, glass and sealants. So, it’s critical to act fast to have a chance of saving your mobile phone. Water can short-circuit mobile phone circuits, and sitting water will cause corrosion to the coils, resistors, and circuit boards. The mobile phone’s internal components can suffer further damage from salt, minerals, chemicals, and dirt.

Please ensure that the mobile phone is turned off.

To prevent damage to your cell phone, you should always turn it off when not in use. Attempting to perform other functions or pushing buttons could cause further damage.

Dry your mobile phone after removing the case.

With a microfiber cloth, dry off the outside of your mobile phone. If you don’t have one, you can use paper towels. Using your screen cleaner, you can sanitize your mobile phone. When drying out a phone, please do not rub it dry; gently pat it to absorb any water.

You need to remove the SIM card and any attachments.

The SIM card and microSD card, as well as the headphones and cords, should be removed. Using your SIM card in a replacement mobile phone may be possible if your SIM card or microSD has not been damaged. This will allow you to access your stored information even if your mobile phone is under repair.

Take the battery out of the device.

The battery should be taken out if possible. This is not possible with an iPhone. All of the other steps listed in the how-to get water out of your iPhone guide should still be done before proceeding with step 6.

is to hold the mobile phone upright

The phone needs to be propped up so that water cannot sit on any electronic components, which could cause corrosion. Water can also be removed from the charging port using this method. If your mobile phone needs to be repaired, bring it to 3C’s service centre immediately.

If you drop your mobile phone in the water, you should avoid doing these things.

  • Dry your phone by patting it rather than rubbing it.
  • It would help if you didn’t shake or blow on your mobile phone, as this could enter even more water.
  • Pushing buttons may cause further damage if it’s left on.
  • When drying, avoid using electricity or electrical devices like hair dryers, microwaves, and vacuums.
  • Extreme temperatures like freezing or near a radiator can damage the mobile phone.
  • Disassembling your phone beyond removing the battery, SIM card, and memory cards is not recommended because doing so could result in more damage or invalidate your warranty.

Remove moisture from a Mobile Phone using uncooked rice.

Uncooked rice is recommended all over the internet to dry out a mobile phone. Please do not attempt this, however. In the past, this trick may have worked for older mobile phones with removable backs and batteries, but it won’t work with the latest mobile phones. It has no long-term benefit and won’t work for any mobile phone. When a mobile phone is exposed to water, the minerals left behind will eventually damage it, causing it to become unresponsive over a few weeks or months. To prevent such a situation, you must seek the help of a specialist.
