Dropped a phone down the toilet? Here’s what to do [infographic] | mobile technology |

So you dropped your phone down the toilet? You have just joined the 15% of people who have admitted to making the same mistake. Here’s what you should do:

Get the phone out ASAP – the longer it’s in water, the less chance you have of saving it.Turn it off – and if it’s off, don’t try turning it on.Take out the SIM card, memory card and the battery (if possible).Using a towel gently dry all the components.Put the phone in an airtight container filled with uncooked rice, which will absorb moisture. Or use some product that is made for this purpose (if you have it).Leave the phone in the rice for at least 24 hours.Hope for the best.

Two things you shouldn’t do:

Do NOT use a hair drier.Do NOT charge the phone.


After a full day passes, turn on the phone. Hopefully it works.

Union Wireless's insight:

It's also a great idea to purchase device protection, because unfortunately the rice method doesn't always work and it can't fix a broken screen or lost phone.
