You freeze. A look of horror flashes across your face as you spin around and look into the commode. Your worst fears have been realized: your $200 cell phone fell out of your coat pocket and now resides at the bottom of the procelain convenience, happily burping little bubbles from the side seams.
|Uh, oh. How do you fix this? |
Believe it or not, a bowl of dry rice may be your answer. The know-it-all people at madtrue.com have step by step instructions on this exact method of drying out a wet phone.
From reports I've read, it works as often as it doesn't (I know one person myself who successfuly used this method- much to her relief). But since you may have a dead phone if you do nothing, this is worth a shot in order to save your cell phone and keep hundreds of dollars in your pocket.
Go here so that oh-so-dreaded "ploop" sound isn't the last thing you ever hear from your phone.
*Disclaimer: Although I believe this method to be sound and safe for your electronics, do this at your own risk as a last-ditch effort only.
