A recent study suggested a huge percentage of people regularly take their smartphones with them into the loo. If you are among the 10 percent who admit to dropping their phone into the toilet bowl then this infographic could be extremely helpful to you.
Common causes of losing phones were falling out of trouser pockets and being knocked into the toilet when being placed on things like the toilet roll holder. That distinctive splashing sound means it is time for urgent action as your phone needs to be resuced as soon as possible to prevent any more water getting inside. If you don't have rubber gloves to hand you will need to fish the device out using the toilet brush or even your fingers.
Turn the phone off and take it apart, placing the sim card, memory card and battery on dry paper and follow the rest of our suggestions. Should the worst happen then you might want to consider buying a waterproof model such as the Sony Xperia Z or the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2. These new generation phones can survive depths of up to 1 metre for 30 minutes and mean you won't have to make any more embarrassing accidental water damage claims.
