Our handsets, whether single or dual sim phones, have become an integral part of our lives. In fact, they are so essential to us these days that we can hardly get rid of them, more so because we are not just using them to make calls or send messages, but also for surfing the internet and do a lot more things. They are so dear to us that we take all the precautions to protect them against any kind of damage, such as water or any kind of breakage, etc. But, a phone is a phone after all—always ready to get slipped from our soft, delicate hands. No matter how much we take care of them, we inadvertently, once in a while, loose our grip on them and see them getting damaged in front of our eyes.
Damage occurs mostly in two forms, either in the form of a breakage or in the form of spillage. If it is the former, then you can’t do anything apart from taking your mobile phone to a service centre to get it repaired. But if the damage is occurred because of spillage on your set, then of course you can try some options to see if it works for your handset before you take it to a service centre and splurge your hard earned cash on it.
A spillage could straight away means losing those priciest photographs that you had clicked on your outdoor tour with your loved ones, or it could mean losing the whole message box or contact list. Simply put, it could mean anything disastrous. The gravest problem that could arise from spillage is of your handset becoming dead, for then even insurance would not come to your rescue.
Protecting your set after the accidental slip to water requires you to act fast on it, same as you would do to save a victim of an accident. So what to do first? Think logically, where is your data? On your sim and memory card, right. So firstly remove your set’s battery, along with its sim and memory card.
Most people find it tempting to turning on their phone after it gets wet to check if it’s still working. But just avoid this, totally. This could be dangerous for your phone, for it may result into a short circuit.
The best way, to protect your handset is to not let it slip from your hands in first instance.
