It is important to act quickly when trying to fix water damage on a phone. The longer the phone remains wet, the more likely it is to suffer permanent damage. Follow these steps as quickly as possible:

Keep your phone away from water and other liquids: This may seem like a no-brainer, but it's easy to accidentally drop your phone in a sink, toilet, or puddle. Keep your phone in a dry place and avoid using it near water when possible.
Use a protective case: Invest in a phone case that is waterproof or water-resistant. These cases can help to protect your phone from accidental spills and splashes.
Avoid using your phone in extreme weather conditions. Store it in a safe place as you navigate through rainy or snowy weather and try to avoid pulling it out until you're in a dry place.
Keep your phone away from wet surfaces: Be mindful of where you place your phone. Avoid setting it on wet surfaces or leaving it in areas where it could be exposed to moisture.
By following these simple tips, you can help to prevent water damage on your phone and keep it functioning properly.
