Smartphones Video: Reviveaphone promises to bring your wet smartphone back from the dead Inadvertently drowned your smartphone? Reviveaphone promises to resuscitate any water-damaged mobile – but does it actually work? 2 February 2014 Comments Submitted by Stevec047 on Mon, 2014-02-03 15:02. I actually used this kit after my phone fell out of ny pocket into a puddle of water. The phone screen went green and then died. After following the instructions I left the phone sealed in the air tight pack supplied for 48 hours. Once I took the phone out and turned it on I still didnt have any power to the phone. Thinking that was that and I would have to get a new one I put it back in thw pack with the silicone pouch and chucked it into the back of a draw. I left it around 2 months until I decided to take it to a local repair centre. Took it out of the pack and popped the battery in. Much to my surprise when I pressed the power button the screen powered up and told me to insert my charger. Having done this the phone has worked perfectly ever since. I am 100% certain that this kit saved my phone even if it didnt work in the time scale given. If you have this same issue leave it in the pouch for a couple of weeks and then try.
