    So apparently no sticky love on this. Guess we'll deal with the numerous dumb posts that will come.

    I tell everyone I know that drops their phone in the toilet, or exposes to water and rice works almost every time. Considering I work for Verizon I hear about it a lot. Rice>ALL in my opinion.

    Good write up, but no matter how many people read this there will still be some who try to bake it in the oven or use a blow dryer, all of which FAIL.

    A longggggg time ago I had a Nextel ( hahahaha ashamed to say that ) and it jumped out of my hand into the toilet.... Really it did! and I had read some where that along with the rice and such "drawing out" the moisture a Refrigerator would help in that process ( thats what a refrigerator does is draw out moisture when the door is sealed)

    So along with the removing the battery and drying it the best as i could with a towel I had placed it in the refrigerator for 3-4 days and worked from then on as if nothing had ever occurred.

    A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

    you can't get the battery, AND SIMM, and SD card out too soon.

    And if you take notes or do anything with "local" files, keep them on yourSD, and back them up online daily.

    Like I said in the disclaimer, I don't care if rice saved your life. I worked in electronics manufacturing and repair for a major LED Sign company and I assure you Rice was never used.

    There is more to consider than just drying it out. The minerals left behind do most of the damage. If it isn't just water you dropped it into, then it is even more important to displace the crud.
