    Hey,

    liquids are a problem, even if they are not much.
    The only thing you can and should do on this one, is to take out
    the battery, the simcard and de sd card,and put the device in a bowl
    of unboiled rice and put it on the heater!

    Leave that for like 1 or 2 days, that should get out the liquids.
    As long as the phone runs smooth, it may not be a problem, but it can!

    You didnt understand me. I had an Motorazr years ago, and it went wet. Not real wet, but a little. It worked 3 days, then i traveled by plain and got it in my bag. when i tried to start, i couldnt, techichian said it got wet. See the point?

    For a 480€ device, i would take the 2 day lack of a phone and try getting liquids out as good as i can!

    Your choice! :)

    Don't worry...it probably will have no affect on the phone. Nothing more than a couple of rain drops while rushing in from a rainstorm.

    If you want to be safe put it in a bowl of rice for a day just to be conservative but if it is still functioning it is likely to be okay...but like RinTinTigger said, you won't know for sure.

    I hope you have insurance. I don't think they're gonna let you replace it if there's any signs of water damage. Well that's how it's here in the U.S, I'm not sure about how they do things over there.

    For all of you who didn't read the Motorola fine print; taking your Droid to a social gathering where alcohol (or any other liquid for that matter) is present, voids the warranty.

    sorry man. :)

    droidwannabe,

    very well put. Poeple are all over the Droid when they see it. Besides, when you don't want bad things to happen to your droid; don't take it with you to social gatherings. I can only recommend leaving it in your car while getting your drink on. However, Moroccan people in Amsterdam might smell the droid from a mile away and break into your car - All risks considered: Leave your droid at home when partying. Take your old nokia
