This is a very usual occurrence in our everyday life,at one point or the other your phone can accidentally fall into a bowl of water,sink,toilet or gutter.
Now don't freak out when that happens,because we got you covered and compiled a few steps to take in other to get your phone back to life.

1. Don’t  press any button or switch it ON after taking it out of water
The first thing you should do is to remove your smartphone from the water. You know right? Importantly, don’t do anything like turning it on, press any keys, nor blow it. You should not do any of this if you are serious about saving your phone.

2. Open the back and remove the battery
The next thing you should do immediately you remove your phone from water is to carefully remove the battery.

3. Take out other removable parts
For those whose batteries are not detachable from their phones, they should simply remove their SIM cards and memory cards. You should also do same even if you can detach your battery.

4. Dry your phone
There are different ways to dry your phone. The first one that comes to mind is the sun. But there are other ways. You can use a vacuum, or dip your phone inside uncooked rice.

 Using uncooked rice is the fastest option to dry your phone. The rice will soak the moisture and dry your phone. Your phone should power on. If it doesn’t power on, you should charge it. If it still doesn’t power on, you can leave it for a day or two. This will help the phone to fully recover and power on.Once this step fails,then follow the next step immediately.

5. Take your phone to an engineer 
After a day or two, and it doesn’t still work, you should take it to your engineer for diagnoses. He should do his magic but it may cost you some money. But don’t just give your phone to anyone. You should have a friend who is experienced in phone repairs and maintenance.
