What should I do if my cell phone falls into the water

A cell phone that falls into water should be removed from the water or liquid it is in as soon as possible and the battery MUST BE REMOVED ASAP in order to prevent more current from accessing components on the board, then the cell phone needs to be shaken to get as much of the water or liquid out as possible preferable where there is an opening if water or liquid is left in the cell phone it will cause that the board will get more and more corrosion and can cause more issues once the water has been removed from the device DO NOT PLACE THE BATTERY BACK IN that could cause more issues and placing the cell phone in rice also does not help from our testing just leaving the phone on the counter does the same thing cause it just causes the water to be removed from the joints of the components but it would not remove enough to ensure there is no corrosion to the board that is why most mobile devices that have been removed from water usually end up dead after a few weeks even after placing it in rice unless cleaned properly.
