If your phone takes a spill, try to remove it from the liquid immediately. The longer it stays there, the damaging chance may increase. Turn the phone off and leave it off.
Remove the protective case. If possible, open the back and remove the battery, SIM card, and microSD card. If not, skip this step. Use a cloth or paper towel to dab your phone dry. Do not rub the phone dry, because it could accidentally push liquid into the phone’s more sensitive parts. If the phone was completely submerged, you might try vacuuming around the phone’s cracks and openings to suck more water out.
Resist the urge to bake your phone in the sun. Keep it in a cool, dry place. The old rice trick isn’t very reliable, but silica gel packets have proven to be much more effective. Fill a plastic zip-top bag with silica gel and bury the phone in the bag. Leave your phone in the bag for at least 24-48 hours. After you’ve allowed your phone to fully dry, switch it on. If it doesn’t turn on right away, try charging it to see if that makes a difference.
People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.
