Dropped Cellphone in the Toilet – How to Save

Recently my wife’s friend visted us. Unfortunately she droped her cell phone in Toilet. We tried the following tips and phone worked.

Ok, Here are tips

  • Remove the cell phone from the water as soon as possible.
  • To prevent electrical short circuits take the battery and SIM card out immediately
  • Wipe the phone gently with a towel
  • Shove th ephone into a bag or jar of full of uncooked rice. – The rice would absorb any remaining moisture.
  • Wait till your phone complately dry and try to put back the battery and test. Phone could be back to normal.
  • If your phone does not swith on, try plugging it into its charger without the battery, if this works, you need a new battery.

    My solution for a cell phone dropped into the toilet:

    1. Use the longest BBQ tongs available to grab the phone and lift it from the toilet.
    2. Drop the cell phone into a Ziploc bag and seal it.
    3. Drop that Ziploc bag into another Ziploc bag and seal it.
    4. Attach the package to a missle and launch it into the sun.
    5. Purchase new cell phone.
