    Phone went for a swim :( Suggestions?

    My Razr MAXX HD went for a swim last night
    Worked ok for a minute or two after then screen started going crazy. Riced it overnight, tried to power on this morning, No dice, back in the rice and on top of the satellite box for a little heat for several hours. Plugged it in and it powered up, had signal/wifi however touch screen is non-responsive. I've got it back in the rice and on the heat. Any suggestions?

    I believe the 'rice routine' requires 48 hours disconnected from power living in your dry heated rice mix before even attempt to power it on... Sorry to say -- it may be toast.. I certainly hope not though. Your best suggestion is to leave on the heat and rice for a couple days minimum and see if it comes back. I'm not familiar with how those things are assembled -- I know the Droid 4 you could take the back off. I would recommend, if it doesn't void the warranty, yanking the battery and back off and submerging them both in rice separately.

    Hoping the best for ya.

    I was afraid that was the case. I know the OG Razr and OG Razr Maxx are sealed, but am unfamiliar with the new ones... Best suggestion -- power off, leave in rice for 2 days minimum. Best of luck.

    Two whole days without your phone?! The HORROR!!
    I don't care what it is, when it has an LCD screen, it makes it better.

    It's gonna take 2 or 3 days of rice to help it dry out then I run a hair dryer of it a while after that , also for info there is somehting inside that Verizon can tell if it got wet it turns color just so you know..........good luck I have had good luck in the past with ham radios in the rice, power it on to early is really the worst it can fry it.
    Do it all now you may not be able to do it later

    Biggest mistake people make is turning it on too soon. You may have been able to save it.. but I think now it's too late. Good luck.

    When my daughters continum went for a swim I wanked the battery and put both phone and battery into rice, kept it in the rice for a week. When we put the battery back in the only problem was that it takes twice as long to boot up other than that worked good. A year later still working but starting to act goofy, guess she is going to get my razr.
