    Re: Wet Cell Phone - What To Do if Your Cell Phone Gets Wet!

    If the inside of your cell phone gets wet there is only one thing that will improve your chances a lot. Take the phone apart, remove the LCD and put everything else in an alcohol bath for a few hours. The idea is to dilute the water with the alcohol so much that it will cause no rust.

    Unless you take it apart and do this any small drop of water in a circuit board will cause rust and is likely to render your phone useless.

    Sorry, but that sounds crazy to me.
    Dry phone with battery removed for a few days worked for me.

    I actually jumped into swimming pool and swam a lap with phone in my pocket. My model is an old one, Samsung dumb x427m, so maybe not typical. I took the whole thing apart, way beyond just removing the battery, let dry overnight plus some, blew some with a hairdryer set to cold, re-assembled, and worked good as new. Not sure why the battery didn't short out, maybe the way this particular model is built or way it happened to be tangled in pocket, but it didn't. Phone was off at the time, not on silent or vibrate, fully off.

    clayton whoa you completely forgot about your phone I also got my phone wet once several years ago. I was in my bathtub and my phone was placed on the side and the funny thing is I haven't noticed that it was missing from where I put it till I drained the tub after my bath then noticed that my phone has joined me in my bath LOL.. I just left it lying around for a couple of days, not even made an effort to dry it but luckily it worked fine when I turned it on

    That's funny ... good thing I'm a tinkerer, probably eventually would have taken it apart anyway just to see what's inside.

    Re: Wet Cell Phone - What To Do if Your Cell Phone Gets Wet!

    My old Nokia got knocked into a sink full of water . I turned it off , removed the battery , blew it out gently with air and then hung from a piece of copper wire under the a/c vent on the ceiling . By the end of the night 3 hours later it came on and worked fine but I went ahead and let it hang there overnight . The a/c really dried it out fast . I used that phone for another 2 years Hope this helps someone else out there
