Phone was inside water the whole night!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So uhm... let's say someone is dumb enough (certainly not me) to leave the phone the whole night inside a toilet because it just fell down there without anyone noticing... is there even a slight hope or a method that it might work again?

Put it in a bag of rice for pretty much as long as you can without trying to turn it on. It can dry up the water left in the device. Never done it myself, but I've hear it works if you can leave it for over a week or so in a dry place.

Take it apart as best as you can, stick the components in a bag of rice, and let it dry out for a while.
