Anyway, screw the rice. This guy don't use no stinking rice: How to Deal with a Droid thats Gotten Wet–THE RIGHT WAY
You might be right about the less expensive insurance plans, though.
The rice does absorb moisture, but far too slowly to really be useful IMO. Fine for keeping a salt shaker from clogging but not much else. Could use it as a stopgap while you look for a real desiccant like calcium chloride salt or silica gel(the stuff they pack in beef jerky and shoeboxes). Airflow helps too. Still will take several days to trult dry it out though.I doubt it. Becuase rice doesn't do ANYTHING for any problem other than water damage. Actually, the usefulness of rice is a hotly debated subject; IMHO it does nothing. You'd be better off throwing it in a container with a couple of those moisture repellent cartridges from vitamin bottles (silica gel I believe) - rice doesn't readily absorb moisture until it is heated and some of the starch is converted to sugar.I think he meant that the rice does wonders but can't fix LCD damage...not that rice causes LCD damage.
