5 Ways to Prevent Damage to Your Phone

Getting a crack in your phone screen or water damage to your device can be a real bummer. Here are some ways to prevent these issues from happening.

1. Get a Strong Case

Though maybe not as pretty as some of the flimsier options, it’s a good idea to get a strong, heavy case for your phone if you are concerned about damage. Many of these cases are sold at your providers and online, and some of the most durable (while expensive) can save you from many accidental drops and other issues that would normally cause serious damage to your device.

2. Get a Screen Protector

Some of these barely protect your screen from dents and bruises, but the majority will keep your phone screen from cracking if you happen to drop your device. Most providers carry screen protectors and will put them on your phone for you for free, which makes things a lot easier.

3. Get Out the Rice

It sounds like an old wives’ tale at this point, but putting your phone in a bag of rice after it gets dropped in water really does work. In some cases, it might just work to revive your phone long enough to get all the data onto an undamaged device, but this is a way to protect your phone from sustaining the serious damage associated with dropping it in water.

4. Hold Tight

Be conscious of your phone when you’re using it. Hold it firmly and try not to place it on your knee or somewhere else precarious where it is likely to fall. Make sure you treat your phone carefully. We all can be a little cavalier sometimes, but these devices are expensive, and we’d do well to remember that.

5. Be Aware

Make sure you always check your pocket for your phone when you are leaving somewhere and that you know where your device is at all times. Many people lose their phones in an instant because they just weren’t paying attention. Unfortunately, this is often more serious than just general damage because you’ll lose all your data unless it’s backed up.
