Help - I Dropped My Mobile Phone Down The Toilet! How Can I Bring My Wet Mobile Phone Back To Life?
If you've dropped your phone in a puddle, or down the toilet, don't panic – you might still be able to save it.

You might as well remove your SIM at the same time. Use a paper towel or toilet paper to remove as much water from the phone as possible. When you're done, leave it to dry naturally for a day or two, then put the handset back together, turn it on and hope for the best.
