A way to save that wet cell phone

Video

Body

If you spend time around the water this time of year, you run the risk of getting your phone wet.

Experts say power your phone off immediately. Remove all skins, covers and face plates and dry off any excess water. If you have a flip phone, open it to let air get in.

Here is the hard part: leave it alone for a couple days. Then put the battery back on and attempt to turn it on.

If it works, you are probably in the clear. If a wet phone cannot be revived, your contacts might still be salvageable. Bring your wet phone into a cell phone store.
