How can I retrieve data from a phone dropped in water?

Pt Mamone December 27, 2012

My Samsung S8300 fell in water, I tried to save it with Iso-Alcohol which cleaned out the water. The OS loading bar stops at 80-95 percent then resets, so I think it is broken. Is there any way to get data from the phone?

    Take the back and battery out of your phone and see if there is a micro SD memory card you don't know about. If there is, get a micro SD memory card to standard SD memory card adapter and then plug it into your machine's SD card reader or a USB card reader adapter which you plug into your machine. See if there any recoverable files.

    Here's a list of freeware memory card recovery programs:

    to save datas you must seek company help and will not be free unless it is under warranty. If the phone do not boot will be difficult to do anything.

    connect your phone to computer, if it can be identified by computer

    then try minitool data recovery software. (

    which can deeply scan your photo to look for lost data,

    good luck, guy.

    I would highly recommend you to take it to the Samsung Service Center. Their engineers have some softwares from Samsung itself which is not available at public domain. You only hope is them.
