    My phone is drowning '-'. Any idea for the first aid?

    It's not drown on seawater. Just normal water.

    I don't want to turn it yet. Maybe wait for a while.

    DO NOT TURN IT ON!!!!!!

    Keep in switched off and submerge it in a bowl of dry rice for about 3-4 days.

    Try to put it in the rice vertically (standing up) so the water inside will run to the bottom of the phone.

    Below is a you tube link showing you what to do.



    IF YOU TURN ON THE PHONE WHILE THERE IS STILL WATER INSIDE, IT WILL SHORT OUT AND DIE FOREVER.

    The rice trick is not a 100% guarantee but its your best hope.

    Good luck

    Not necessarily, water damage isn't really a hard science. Maybe the water didn't have time to go deep enough or etc.
