How to save phone from rain water?
Here are some of the ways to save your mobile phone from rain water.
Put your phone inside a plastic.
As rain may enter inside your pocket/bag, it is very useful to put your phone inside a plastic bag. Make sure there is no any tear or whole in plastic bag to prevent the water from entering.
Do keep a silica gel inside to keep the device moisture free.
If you are strolling or using your bike, place your phone in the inner layer of your raincoat pocket. Or it could be inside your waterproof bag.
Instead of simple plastic, you can even buy special waterproof cases/cover to make it safe for continuous use in the rain.
Hands free mode
Put your phone in a safe place and use it hands free or with earpiece to save it from water.
Switch off if it is wet.
If a mobile is wet, you should immediately switch it off or take out the battery. Then leave it for a day till the phone (along with inside chip circuitry) gets dry.
Do not use any heating equipment or charger.
If its heavily soaked in the rain, you should submerge the phone, battery and SIM inside a bowl of rice for a day.
