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.

If you are among those lucky enough to have your health and mobility then you may also be among those that have never considered how it would feel to not have the use of your legs. If you do, it seems so normal, so easy to take for granted, to stand or walk or run. Imagine for a moment if you didn’t have that ability. Now imagine what it would feel like to suddenly get some of that mobility back.

It would be pretty freaking awesome.

To many, physical therapy pools seem to be the giant tubs that sit in the training rooms of your favorite sports team or athlete, but to some, they are a way back to a feeling of control and mobility. The weightlessness one feels in water can be a very liberating feeling to someone normally confined to a wheelchair so it may surprise the mobile masses just how popular and often used they actually are.

Physical therapy pools are not the esoteric training tool most assume that they are as they are in use in residential applications all over the country. The last decade or so has seen a sharp increase in home instillations as their benefits are clearly very well documented. People who previously had no liberation from their physical limitations are making great use of the natural buoyancy of water and the soothing, calming affects that it can achieve. In addition to the mental benefits, physical therapy pools can also bring about great results in overall body health as they can be used as a form of non weight bearing exercise. Immobility is the single largest contributor to muscle atrophy which can lead to a whole host of associated problems including embolism, poor circulation, skin integrity issues and respiratory problems. The ability to move or be moved within the weightlessness of moving water can help alleviate or combat these health issues while also bringing about a feeling of independence and mobility that may be otherwise impossible.

Physical therapy pools are not just for the athlete. They are for everyone.

IMAs big barn – Friday , October 5th – 8pm

165 Cape Street (Hwy112)

Goshen, MA 01032

with special guest: Jane Karras

Folk singer-songwriter, Melissa Crabtree, releases her third album entitled “The Day I Fell in the Water.” Crabtree lives two lives, one as a wilderness guide and the other as a working musician. At this intersection of nature and music, she conjures songs like a contemporary female Woody Guthrie songs that amuse, inspire and entertain. Whether shes guiding a raft through the Grand Canyon or writing songs about the majesty of the American West, Crabtrees heartfelt love for the natural world transports her listeners to the wild places she knows best.

“My songs are a record of my life which flow through me while I am living outside in the wilderness and on the water,” she comments.

Crabtree herself has shared the stage with leading performers such as Joan Osborne, Ani Difranco, Patty Larkin, David Wilcox, and Tony Furtado. In performance, she delivers her poignant stories in a distinctly husky alto with a pleasing twang on her guitar. Smooth and delicate harmonies present her lyrics about life, relationships and politics between Crabtree and the rivers, ancient canyon walls, and the oceans. After having received numerous awards (Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Rocky Mountain Folk Festival, and Kerrville Folk Festival) and completing many successful tours in the last decade, Melissa has given us a truly beautiful gift with “The Day I Fell in the Water.”

On “The Day I Fell in the Water,” songs such as “Spirit Mountain” and “Daisies Talk” paint an honest picture of the muses Crabtree finds in the natural world. However its not just her storytelling thats impressive; Crabtree has a way of incorporating a message into her songs that are both unique and exalting. The song “Bees” is complemented by the fluttering sounds of a mandolin while Crabtree addresses issues of wildlife conservation that she observes. Then there are songs like “The Day I Fell In the Water” and Water Canyon,” which deal with how the natural world has shaped her personal growth, delving more into matters of the heart. Her combination of Folk, Americana, and Country laced with themes of nature is both classic and refreshinga genuine window into the soul of a talented songwriter.

“The Day I Fell In the Water” is packed with talented performers, including Kris Delmhorst, Tony Furtado, Eliza Gilkyson, Libby Kirkpatrick, Julie Wolf, and Andre Moran. The album was mixed and mastered by Mark Hallman (Carole King, Eliza Gilkyson, Will Sexton) at Congress House in Austin, TX.
