    Help! My droid got drenched in a torrential rainstorm! Can I/How can I save it (if at all).

    After the storm, I removed the card and have let it dry out (about 30 hours now) and it appears that the water damaged it.

    Is it dead? Do I have to replace it? What, if anything, can be done to recover data, etc.

    PLEASE HELP! THIS IS MY BUSINESS! I'M DYING HERE!

    Sounds like you'll have to use your Asurion insurance to replace it.

    I've heard removing the battery and putting the phone in rice helps draw out the moisture.

    I have a friend that put an ipod touch through the washing machine and put it in rice. She said it worked after a few days in the rice.
