5 things you need to do if you get your phone wet: Infographic

I’ve owned five phones since I turned of age and my mum bought me my very first mobile phone (the classic 3210). Even though I consider myself a safe pair of hands when it comes to owning a mobile phone, each of my five phones have come to premature and unfortunate ends.

Two were adopted by strangers, also known as stolen. One jumped from a building, though my friends will tell you I dropped it out of the window whilst trying to take a photo, one decided to play hide and seek and, to my knowledge, is still playing (either that or I lost it in my bedroom) and the other was desperate to take up swimming, so much so in fact, it found its way into my swim short pocket before I got into the pool. Oops.

I’m sure you’ll agree, none of the above were my fault and there wasn’t much I could do to rescue my phones. That is, all but the swimmer. ┬áHad I known what I’m about to share with you, there may have been hope for the little fellow.

If you accidentally find your phone gets wet (and there are numerous examples of how this can happen, too many to name in fact) then all you need to do is follow our 5 ludicrously easy steps. It’ll be like your phone has its own water wings. Genius!
