How to Save a Mobile Dropped in Water


Have you ever dropped your mobile in the sink or the toilet? Did you run through the washer while leaving it in your pocket? Are you swimming while mobile in your pocket? How can you safe your mobile in water, just follow these simple steps.

1. Take it out of the water as early as possible. Cell phones are covered by strong plastic case, but water can enter the phone in a short period of time, perhaps only 10 seconds or less. Try to catch your mobile as early as possible. If you are not successful in catching it in time, your best bet is to remove the battery while it is still under water. Water can easily damage the phone, so try to remove battery as early as possible.

2. Don’t panic. Nothing has happened to your mobile, if you get your mobile out of water in time. So immediately take your mobile out.

3. Next and most important step is to remove the battery. This is one of the most important steps. Don’t waste your time to think about removing your mobile battery or not, just do it fast. When you cut power supply to your mobile phone, you have done your job.Electricity and water do not mix. Many circuits inside the phone will remain accurate provided they are not attached to a power source when wet.

4. If your mobile set is a GSM carrier, then please remove your SIM card. By doing this you can save your important dat as well as your contact list. To some people contact list could be more worth saving than the phone itself. You don’t need to heat up your sim card. Just keep it dry and leave it aside until you need to connect your phone to your cellular network. This important step of removing sim is not applied to CDMA carrier phones.

5. Next step is to dry your phone. Try to remove as much of the water as early as possible, so you can save it from getting into the phone. Vigorously shake your mobile but don’t drop it on floor while shaking it, then use a towel or paper towel to slowly remove as much of the remaining water as possible. Dry the excess moisture by hand.

6. Remove any covers and external connectors to open up as many grooves, crevices, gaps in the phone as possible. Idea is to remove water from every part of your mobile set.

7. You may use vacuum cleaner to remove excess water and dry your set. Try to avoid hair dryer for this purpose, as this may force moisture further into the small components, deep inside the phone. If moisture is driven deeper inside, deep parts and circuits may show corrosion and oxidation as minerals from liquids are deposited on the circuitry. If you are using a hairdryer it may temporary solve your problem, but this will eventually cause component failure inside the phone. In each accessible area use vacuum cleaner for at least 15 minutes and remove all residual moisture. By adopting this method your mobile can get into working condition within just 30 minutes. Don’t hold the vacuum too close to the phone, as a vacuum can create static electricity, which can cause further damage.

8. If you still feel that there is some water inside, then you may go for a substance which has a high osmolality for water to help draw out moisture, i.e this substance can absorb water more quickly. You may use uncooked rice overnight. The rice would absorb any remaining moisture. Instead you may use desiccant. Desiccant can remove moisture better than rice.

9. Now keep the mobile set on absorbent towels, napkin, or other paper for at least one day. Idea is the same, remove excess water and humidity from cell phone. Check absorbent towels, napkin, or other paper every hour for 4 to 6 hours. If you note any moisture again, just go for vacuuming step and desiccant steps.

10. Now you have reached the final step. Test your phone. After twenty four hours, first check it with battery and see if it works. If your phone does not work, check it without battery by plugging it into charger., if this works, you need a new battery. If not, take your mobile to an authorized dealer. Sometimes they can remove the problem. Please tell them what actually has happened with your mobile.

When I updated to the iPhone OS 4.0 I knew that it would allow me run apps even while I was using other apps. I thought it would be nice for the apps that send me push notifications to keep working all the time. So I updated the software and went on my merry little way. About a month ago I noticed my iPhone was running through battery life at an alarming rate. I knew something had to be up because no one hadnt been using my phone much and thats usually my guaranteed battery drain. I deleted apps, cleared off my camera roll and the battery life did improve. A little.

On Saturday my friend was looking for something on my iPhone and he discovered that I had at least thirty apps running in the background. He said something to the effect of dont you know how to turn off apps when you are done using them? I said yes, you just leave the app, tap the home screen button and be done with it. Well.apparently Ive been delusional because there are many apps that will continue to run even when youve left them. Which is fine if theyre apps that need to run but if you have a bunch that dont then your phone memory and battery life are going to suffer. There was my lightbulb moment of the week.

Perhaps Im the only one out there who didnt realize that I had so many apps working overtime for me. Here are the steps to truly shutting down an app just in case Im not the only one who didnt know how to do it.

* Tap the home button twice.

* At the bottom of the screen youll see a row app icons. These are the apps that are running. Slide your finger to move forward or backward through the apps. Chances are youll have more than the four that first show up.

* Touch one of the app icons and hold your finger on it until they all start wiggling. A small red circle will appear at the top left of the icon.

* Tap on the red circle and the app icon will disappear. The app is now no longer running in the background.

* When youre done shutting things down tap the home button and the apps will stop wiggling.

* Tap the home button again to return to your home screen.

* These steps will work even if you are currently using an app. In other words, you dont have to be on the home screen to bring up the row of running apps.

Now that I know how to manage them I can (hopefully) make better use of this feature. Go ahead, give it a try and see how many apps youve been running in the background!

How Addiction Recovery Can Save Your Life

Substance addiction is no laughing matter. It can destroy your plans, gnaw through your relationships, and create long term and sometimes even irreparable damages to your loved ones’ lives as well. Most of the time, those who are addicted to substances (alcohol, drugs, tobacco or otherwise) deny that they need help. Some people who have experienced one form of addiction or another have tried to overcome it on their own, and failed.

This is because addiction is triggered by uncontrollable emotions, and when you try to snap out of it without support, you may fall back into the pit at the slightest provocation. This is where addiction recovery can save your life. Good addiction rehab programs can provide support for you so that you can keep up the will power you’ll need to snap out of your substance addiction. Addiction recovery will also encourage your family and friends to be involved, to help them understand what you’re going through and tell them what they need to do to help you out of your situation.

Recovering from addiction is not easy. Relapses can always happen, and when you’re not committed to recovering from any form of addiction, it’s always easier to slide back. What our addiction recovery programs do is to let you know that it’s always your choice. If you want to get better, you will. Detoxifying your body from harmful chemicals is one thing. It’s quite another to detoxify your mind and your soul.

Addiction Recovery programs will remind you of what you were living for before the addiction began. It will remind you that there are bigger and more important things in life you should face, and that the addiction is pulling you back from doing so many good things.

If you’re not an addict yourself, and you suspect that someone you love has succumbed to substance addiction because they’re going through a difficult time, addiction recovery can also help you understand him or her better. Many family members give up on someone who’s addicted because they become frustrated with relapses. Some are just emotionally and physically tired, and they think that no form of therapy will work.

With addiction recovery, you’ll know that it is still possible for your friend, mother, father, sibling, spouse or child to get back on his or her feet. Addiction recovery will let you see what went wrong with the first attempts, and how you can work on the treatments and the therapies again.

Addictions hurt not just the individuals who are suffering from it, but the people who are around him or her as well. If you give up on therapies and treatments because you didn’t receive instant results, you’ll regress and these regressions can be extremely painful both for the family and the one suffering from the addiction.

Quality addiction recovery programs aim to guide you through treatment, step-by-step. If you’re in the early stages of your recovery, professional addiction treatment will help you strengthen your will power so you’ll have less chances of regressing. If you’re currently in the regression stages, there are programs that can help you get back on the road to recovery so you can reclaim your sober life.
