Follow these tips and precautions to help maintain water and dust resistance for your phone.
Never attempt to insert or remove the
nano SIM and
microSD cards with gloves, wet hands, or when the phone is wet.
- Before closing the card slot covers, wipe off every drop of water or dirt with a clean, dry cloth.
Also make sure that no hairs, fibers, or small particles are caught between the covers and the slot openings to prevent water from seeping through the gaps and entering the phone.
- Parts that maintain water resistance such as the
card slot cover may degrade over time. If these parts degrade or get damaged, the phone will no longer be water resistant. If this happens, contact your retail store or mobile operator. You may be charged for parts replacement.
