What should I do when my phone gets water damage?

I accidentally dropped my phone in the toilet and now it doesn't turn on or work anymore?

Re: What should I do when my phone gets water damage?

If you can remove the battery do so immediately

Place it in a bag of rice and leave for a few days in a warm place.

If it does not work after that you may need to see if it can be repaired, but it will cost.

Check if there is any insurance on the phone, via network, house or bank etc.

According to insurance statistics dropping a phone down the toilet accounts for over a third of water damage claims
