Your mobile has liquid damage


Remove the battery and SIM
Remove any covers meant to come off along with the SIM and battery. Please note: Do not try to open any screws, pry open anything that looks sealed or examine any other parts of the phone as this will void your warranty.

Place the mobile somewhere warm
You should allow the phone to dry naturally by placing it in the sun, near a heater or even in your hot water heater closet.

Frequently asked questions

Is it best to courier my phone?

If you're just sending one handset and the battery looks like it's in good condition, you can simply use a standard courier bag.

Just remember to make sure the device is switched off, wrap it in strong, rigid packaging and keep it to once device per bag. You can then drop the courier bag at your local Post Shop or call the courier to pick it up. Don't forget to get proof of postage (e.g. track & trace).

What if I have a damaged battery?

If you're returning a battery, powerpack or your device's battery is damaged or exposed, please give us a call or drop into a Vodafone store.
