Hey all, mostly this is just a request to help cover all my bases. I went swimming in a pool and had my Droid Incredible in my pocket (went swimming earlier and later went swimming again but forgot I had my phone on me), I instantly realized my error when my phone started vibrating and didn't stop till the battery got pulled. I put it in rice and am now just waiting till 24 hours is up to pull it out. I don't know the extent of the damage and haven't atempted to turn it back on yet, but it was submerged for about a minute at the very least. The pool is a private one and uses salt instead of chlorine.
My phone also got dropped in a puddle and was completely submerged last year but it was only for a couple of seconds and when I went to pull the battery then I found the interior completely dry, I guess it was just sealed up well enough to protect it. This time the exposure was more extreme.
Well my question now is this; is there anything else I can do/try in case the rice doesn't work? And also just in case the worst happens and my phone is shot does anyone know of a place to try for a relatively cheap used phone? If I can't rescue my phone I'll need at least a temporary replacement till I figure out if I want to upgrade or whatnot. Most places I've looked for a used, slightly older phone have yielded stuff in the $100 range, but if I could find something in the $50 range that would be better.
