- Firstly you must pull it out of the water and turn it off. Remember that you must do this as quickly as you can do because if your phone remains under water for more time, there will be less chances of its survival.
- You must turn the phone off and take its battery out if its removable battery and you should not be thinking about any other thing at that time.
- Place it somewhere and wrap each and every thing in paper towels. Many new models which are not water proof can resist in water for few seconds but you must do everything quickly.
- You must not turn your phone on even after couple of hours, do not try to press any volume or power buttons or any other keypad if its not a touch screen handset, do remember that.
- If you know how to disassemble your phone and you are not concerned about the warranty then open it up and try to dry each and every single part of your phone.
- You can use vacuum cleaner if you don’t have towels in range.
- Patience is very important here. You must not assemble your phone before 3 or 4 days. Until then use your sim in some other phone.
- There is also one trick which is to put your phone in a bag filled with rice and leave it in for 3 to 4 days and the rice will absorb the moisture.
