Spilled Beer on Droid - What Next?
At a party 2 days ago. I turned to a coffee table to see a terrible sight - a beer spill, the majority of which was on top of my Droid. I have a hard plastic case which kind of kept the beer in a pool on the top screen. Without checking to see if the phone was still on, I immediately wrested the battery out and left the phone to dry. None of the visible water damage indicators have been triggered. When I slid the phone closed and then open, a little moisture appeared on the keyboard, suggesting that beer had seeped through the entire top screen. The slider itself is fully functional - I know that in some cases the moisture can 'gum' it up - this hasn't happened.
It's been 2 days and I haven't turned the phone on yet. It has seemed completely dry for a day. My question is: Is drying the phone all I have to do? Or is there a danger that when I turn the phone on, beer residue will short it out (even if it isn't wet)? I'm really afraid of a 'slow death' in which the phone works for a month or so, but the beer corrosion eventually makes the electronics within succumb. Is this a valid concern and should I take more steps to clean my phone?
