    What should I do after Dropping my Galaxy Apollo mobile Accidently in Toilet?

    I dropped my apollo in the toilet... I dried it with a towel, removed to battery, sd card and SIM card, and placed it on my desk to dry for a couple hours, then put it between towels in the siring cupboard for about 2 1/2 hours... I plugged it in and put the battery back ion, no signs of life, except it briefly flashed to boot logo, so I left it to charge, and noticed a while later that it was generating a lot of heat (more than when I run it hard for a couple days...) so I removed the battery again... what can I do and will my phone ever live again?

    Hello Dear Friend,

    I better advised you to take your Gallaxy Appolo to the samsung customer care because they can better resolve issues in your cell except this don't want to take help from others or any buddy as it is very expensive so risk.

    Hope this will help you a lot. All the Best..............!!

    Steps to be followed:
    • Clean and dry the device using cotton cloth, For washing dont use Water, Try to wipe out everything using a Towel.
    • Can use Semi-Wet towel for Wiping.
    • Try to Dry all the Water, by removing all the parts, Battery,Sim card.
    • Dont try to switch On.
    • Dont connect it to Charge.
    • If the mobile is on, Dont make calls and dont attend any incoming calls.
    • If you are so sure that nothing is happened to the Mobile then after drying it for a day, You can try to reboot.
    • If there is any prob then again remove all the stuffs and dont try booting Again
    • Take directly to Authorized Service station if its not in working condition.
    ​Good Luck.

    You have made big mistake,but on same time you did the necessary things.It is obvious to happen.
    Your phone might have some damage inside due to water.So,better to get service centre.There tell your problem & they will short it out.May be they change some software.But go to service centre first.Before its to late.

    Before you turn on a wet mobile or let the battery charge, it needs to be perfectly dry... Any wet component will short circuit the whole mother board and can even destroy some or all components of the circuits... To make it get completely dry wrap it in a piece of cloth and put it inside a rice can for 4-5 hours, the dust on the rice absorbs all the moisture inside the mobile.... If you are lucky, you can ignite its soul again or else take it to the customer care and get it repaired...

    Hello

    It seems you have done everything to dry it up and make it work but after that also it isnt working.

    Go to your nearest service center and ask them if they can do anything.

    Thanks
