Cell phone recycling program
Even if you decide against cell phone repair don’t throw your device away. MD Wireless provides a free place to drop off those out of date phones and those that are simply damaged beyond repair. Cell phones contain heavy metals and toxins that can leak into our ground water supply if tossed in a landfill. Let us dispose of your device properly and keep the environment green.
If you can’t see the display on your cell phone it can be difficult to retrieve your information. We understand that you can’t put a price on photos and contacts. If you are more concerned with data recovery than getting your cell phone repaired, give us a call. There is a good chance that we can get your data back from your device. We can often recover data which has been deleted from memory cards as well.
Inside of your cell phone there are metal shields that protect delicate circuitry. Because of this shielding it is impossible to get your phone completely dry without disassembling it. While we recommend taking your device to the Cell Phone Doctor as soon as possible, there are a few things that you can do in the mean time.
- Resist the urge to power the phone up. Electricity running through a wet circuit board may cause severe and irreversible damage! Remove your battery, SIM card and micro SD memory card when applicable. Pat the phone dry in every area that you have access to.
- Do not expose your phone to excessive heat. This will actually increase the rate of corrosion caused by liquid trapped inside the phone. That means don’t use a heated blow dryer and don’t put your phone in the sun, oven, or microwave!
- Submerge your phone in a desiccant. You know those little packets that come inside of shoes boxes and beef jerky? They are filled with silica gel which is like a magnet for moisture. This can help to draw out some of the liquid. You would need quite a few though so if that’s not practical white rice is a reasonable substitute. However be aware that rice tends to get inside of phones easily so you should wrap it first in a light material like cheesecloth or nylon to prevent grains from getting stuck inside.
- Get your phone to us as soon as you can. The longer you wait, the lower the chances will be of restoring your phone to 100% working condition. When it comes to cell phone repair for wet phones the clock is always ticking.
