So last night I dropped my iPhone in the toilet. The worse part about it is my sweet boy hadn’t flushed the potty yet. EWWWW!!! I was trying to help him pull up his pants and I saw my phone slide across the counter and fly into the potty. I quickly got it out and thought wow it didn’t get wet! I started to check it for possible damage. I tried to text and that worked. I made a phone call and that worked too. All of a sudden I realized that my ear piece wasn’t workin. The person I called could hear me but I couldn’t hear them. Oh no!!! In a panic I powered down my iPhone. BIG MISTAKE!!! I couldnt get it to turn back on. I tried everything I could think of. I tried to plug it into the wall charger and no life. It was dead. I shook the phone, I blew into the phone, I plugged it back into the charger and again no life. I thought it was over. I started to have a panic attack. My mind started to go…How would anyone get a hold of me? How would I text my sweet love who lives hours away? How would I retrieve my pictures and videos?
I remembered someone telling me about this rice trick, so I tried it. It is really very simple. All you need is a water damaged cell phone, a ziploc or plastic container, and rice. Simply pour the rice in the ziploc or plastic container and submerge your water damaged phone in it. Seal it/cover it. Let it sit over night. In the morning check the phone and it should be as good as new, like MAGIC! Wahoooo! I tried it and amazingly enough it worked! I kept the rice in the container and put it away for safe keeping. Never know when I will need emergency rice!
Has this ever happened to you? What have you done to fix a water damaged cell phone? Did it work?
