So you dropped your phone in the toilet! (I don't want to know how that happened!) or maybe your kids dropped it in the bathtub. Whatever the reason may be that your phone went for a swim, you just might be able to save it. Here's some great tips on how, thanks to Gizmodo.com
As soon as you realize your gadget has been doused you need to get the electricity out of it, and fast. Damage isn't generally caused by water itself, but by the electrical shorts that it creates. If you gadget has a removable battery, pull it out fast. If it doesn't turn off the power immediately. If the power is off by the time you retrieve it, resist the urge to turn it on to check it. You're going to be without your gadget for a couple days. Accept that now.
Remove everything that can come off the gadget. Back covers, SD cards, SIM cards, headphone port coverings. Everything. The more you can strip it down the better. Don't break it, but you want to open up as many points for air to get in and water to get out as possible.
If you have a vacuum cleaner with a narrow nozzle attachment, that's ideal. You want to try to get as much of that moisture out as possible. Suck from each port for at least five minutes.
Not long ago, I dropped my phone in a bowl of soup. I'm not proud of it, but it happened. I didn't have a vacuum nearby. I had to suck the soup out of the earphone port, the ear piece, and microphone ports with my mouth (spitting it out into a second bowl). Am I proud of this? No. Did it save the phone? Yes.
You will see a lot of sites that tell you to put your gadget into a bowl of dry rice. That works okay, but I'm going to share with you my secret weapon that works better than anything I've ever tried: Rice Krispies. Yes, the breakfast cereal. They suck up liquid much faster and more aggressively than uncooked rice. Grab a fresh box, jam your device in there, and leave it for 48 hours. Rotate the device every now and then.
After 48 hours or so, remove your phone from the Rice Krispies. If you see any sign of moisture still in there (fog on the screen, for instance), put it back in for more time. If, however, it looks bone dry, put the battery back in, and (hopefully) turn it on. With a little luck, your gadget will be up and running again.
