3 Common mistakes for water damage phone

26 June 2019

What once was considered a luxury is now a necessity. A much needed and loved necessity,

a very delicate piece of technology that can be damaged by the smallest drops of water.

So,it’s into the toilet?

Firstly, you might have been told that it is a great idea to put your phone into a container of rice, but the fact is it will not suck out the water efficiently and it could assist in the growth of mould.

2.    Another popular option is to put your phone into cat litter crystals. However, the result is similar with above and will give an odour.

3.    Using a blow dryer is not recommended as the strength and temperature of the air may disperse water in your device to unaffected areas and further damage your product.


Remove your phone from the water immediately. Time is of the essence and the least amount of time your precious phone is in contact with water, the less chance of further damage to the unit.

2. Dry it thoroughly

3. Remove the Sim Tray and Sim Card

4. Place it in a warm place

5. Make sure it is turned off if it is still on.
