My Cell Phone Got Wet...
Step 1 - Turn your wet cell phone off
You may have been doing a cannonball, the laundry, or had a mishap in the bathroom. We all know that water and electronics don't mix. Luckily you are at the best place on the internet to fix your water damaged cell phone.
The first thing to do if your phone has come in contact with water is to TURN IT OFF! Then wipe away any water that is on the device and put it in a dry place. It is very important to not turn it on or charge it.
(We know it's hard to resist!) Doing so may cause permanent damage to the phone.
Step 2 - Look at iRevive Options
We know that you want to get your phone back to working order as soon as possible. The fact is, there is water inside of your phone that is going to build corrosion once the water evaporates.
