Wet cell phone
1. Remove battery and dry cell phone.
First, remove the battery, and then dry the phone using a hotel hair dryer or the hand dryer in a bathroom. For more nitty-gritty, see WikiHow's seven-step guide.
2. Klutzy types should consider a water-resistant phone. Verizon Wireless offers the G'zOne. Nextel's i580 is popular with construction workers, snowboarders, and military personnel.
If you depend on your cell phone for your contacts and schedule, consider using Plaxo, a service which lets users sync address books and calendars online and access them from any computer.
