Bathing your Cell Phone

It turns out, folks, that smart phones aren't meant to take a bath. I'm not sure how you're supposed to clean them behind the ears, but dumping water on them isn't the way to do it. As my children learned the hard way.

Luckily for the phone (and the children), the rice trick actually works. The sad, cracked phone that isn't up for an upgrade until November is functioning again. It rings. It dials. I hear people and they hear me. But it's got one weird little quirk: other than ringing, the sound doesn't work. No texting choo-choo. No Pandora. No Netflix (the children are saddest about this). No clickety-clack when typing.
(Those aren't my phones. I had a hard time taking a picture of my phone with my phone, so this is generic. I guess I could've used my husband's phone but I didn't think of it before he left for work.)


Weird, huh?

I'll take it.

Keep your phones dry... all it takes is a few drops and you'll have to watch Netflix with subtitles.

Sorry to hear about the bath almost disaster! Didn't know rice worked.

Last time I dropped mine in the sink I hair dried it. It didn't like the heat (iPhones rarely do!) but once we'd all cooled down it worked perfectly again. :)

At least the rice worked! My son dropped mine down the toilet and I have no idea how long it was in there before I found it, but it went to that great big junkyard in the sky.....
