    It depends, but I wouldn't count on the phone working again. The rice and what not may help but typically once wet phones are done for good.

    My mom had dropped her LG Ally in the toilet. It was fully submerged and had a case on which trapped water. I took everything off and put it in rice for over 24 hours and it worked fine. Just leave it in the rice as long as possible to get the moisture out.

    i jus took a look at my droid and the red x's with the white background on my battery is red and the red x's with the white background on my phone is still white with red x's do i have a glimmer of hope that the battery might not give off enough power to turn the display screen on

    Are you going to get financial compensation for the replacement of your phone from the coworkers who threw water on you? That is completely unacceptable.

    I'm glad to hear you had insurance and at least one of the responsible parties is stepping up...

    In "the old days" you used to be able to get tossed in a pool at any moment and the worst that would happen is your sneakers and wallet got soaked. Now everyone has cell phones and MP3 players on their person... spontaneity around water is costly... lol. :)
