It is a frequent (and very sad) Facebook status:
“I’ve dropped my cellphone in water. Email me until I get it replaced.”
Today I offer a possible solution.
It’s called DryBox Rescue, a service offered by authorized dealers around the country. Your soggy cellphone is placed in a patent-pending drying chamber. The moisture is then removed — at the molecular level — in less than 30 minutes.
It also works on other small electronic devices that are drawn to the toilet and sink — mp3 players, cameras, GPS units, etc.
Full disclosure: I’ve never used this service; I’ve just read about it in an airline magazine. But it sounds like a much better option than 1) rice or 2) throwing away your pricey smart phone.
So, give it a look. Other than the rather unfortunate name, I think it shows promise.
