HOW TO SAVE YOUR PHONE FROM WATER DAMAGE!!!A few days ago my daughter Olivia decided to swish my cell phone around in the toilet. I did not want to have to buy a new cell phone (mostly because I am holding out to see if Verizon is really going to get the iphone in January). My husband said he'd heard somewhere about a little trick for soaking all the water out of your phone, so we gave it a try!
1. take the batter out of the phone, and open up any part that can be opened (i.e. if its a flip phone, open it, the little part that you put the charger in, make sure its open).
2. place it in the tupperware.
3. pour rice in and seal it shut.
4. wait. wait. and wait. we waited 1 day, tried it, but there were still some quirks so we put it back in for another 1/2 day and it now works perfectly fine! It had a few weird problems at first, but they seem to have worked themselves out.
You might as well try it, if it doesn't work, then you know you need a new phone, or maybe just a new battery (which only cost about $20). Hope this helps someone else save their phone!!!
