Dropped your handset in the bath?? Is it drenched in 

    unexpected downpour?? 

    Don't panic -- just follow these steps 

    1. Firstly, retrieve your handset from the drink straight 

    away. It will decrease the risk of damage.

    2. Resist the urge to check if it still works or press any 

    buttons, since putting pressure on the keys could shift liquid 

    further into the device.

    3. In all cases, the best thing to do is immediately pull out 

    the battery, thus minimizing power to the device that may 

    cause it to short circuit. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT..!!

    4. Remove any peripherals and attachments on your phone, 

    such as cases.

    5. Extract the SIM card and any SD cards it carries, leaving 

    ports or covers on your handset open to aid ventilation.

    6. Dry off everything with a towel, including the exterior of 

    your handset, being careful not to let any water drain into 

    openings on the phone.

    7. Even when everything's dry, it's very likely there's latent 

    moisture within the device that you'll want to get out before 

    turning it on. The most oft-reported fix for a sodden phone 

    is to bury the handset in a bowl of dry rice. You can also 

    use silica gel packs -- the kind used in shoe boxes -- to 

    greater effect.

    8. Place your phone in an airtight container and completely 

    cover it with your choice of desiccant. Leave the container 

    for 24-48 hours for the material to draw all the moisture out 

    of your handset.

    9. When you're confident it's dried out, replace the battery 

    and try switching it on.
