(announcer voice)“How many times has this happened to you”? You set your cell phone next to the sink or near the pool or (gulp) on the back of the toilet and, like a magnet, it is drawn to the water (hopefully, you remembered to flush). You feverishly pluck it out, shake it a little, grab a towel, turn it on and – nothing. No amount of cellular life-support will bring it back, it appears. There goes all of your stored phone numbers, ringtones and videos you shot. “Aww, man – lame”, you cry!
Wait! Before you decide to shoot a video of you smashing your cell phone and upload it to YouTube, read this awesome post from crazy bytes on how to save a wet cell phone. There may yet be hope!
