Take out the removable items from the phone. Items like the SIM Card, the memory Card. However, remember that this is a phone with a non-removable battery, so you shouldn’t try to screw out the battery from the phone. One important thing to bear in mind when removing these items is to try as much as possible not to shake the phone to much. This is because shaking the phone too much may give way for water to enter into more parts of the phone.

3. Dry the phone
