My phone was submerged in water for about 90 seconds. Will it still work and how long should I wait before trying it?

You should probably wait for a few days to ensure it's completely dry on the inside. I have heard other folks suggest that putting the phone in a bowl of white rice for a few days is a great way to dry it out. The rice will absorb the moisture.

Did the case cover the entire phone or just the sides and back like most?

Dry out a wet cell phone

So you dropped your blackberry in the pool...All is not lost...Hopefully.

1. Resist the urge to try and power it up, this is when damage can occur.
2. Immediately pull the battery our and dont ever think about hooking it to the wall/car charger.
3. Get a can of compressed air (dust off) and blow every nook and cranny until no water droplets can be seen. If its stuck in the screen do your best to get as much as you can. The next step will take care of the rest. Take off any covers and try to get it as dry as possible.
4. Put the phone in an airtight container filled with dry white rice (Uncle Bens Uncooked White is good enough).
5. Let the phone sit for a full day (24hr minimum). It is imperative to wait, and the longer you can resist the better of chance you may have. The more water logged the phone the more you should wait. If you open the container and it is at all damp, put in a new bowl of dry rice and wait another two days because it is water logged.
6. Pull the phone out of the rice and blow it all out with compressed air, dust is an enemy, but less lethal then the water.
7. Plug in the battery, but not the charger.
8. If all turns on then I'd still wait a day to put it on the charger just in case its a little damp (dont want the AC to short something).

I am on call and have dunked my blackberry 8330 more times than I care to remember this has saved it about 50% of the time.

What ever you do dont dunk it is rubbing alcohol or try and dry it with a hair dryer. Those methods can work on lesser electronics, but dissolve the fine circuitry on our cellphones.

****... i know this is late but if your phone ever gets dropped in water, quickly turn the phone off, take the phone apart (battery, and sim card), and put it on a bed of rice, and pour a lil more rice on top of the phone as well. I did this and left it over night and my phone was fine!
I know this sounds retarded but it works! RICE DISSOLVES WATER!

After taking the camera into the water, it won't stay on.

Remove the battery and then immerse both the camera and the phone into a pound of dry uncooked rice for at least three days. The dry rice will **** all of the moisture out. After three days put in the battery and try it. If it works. problem solved. If not, remove the battery and stick it all back into the rice for a few more days.

I dropped my phone in water but icked it up right

Remove the battery and immerse both the phone and the battery in dry uncooked rice for three days. This is the only cheap way to dry everything out. After the three days put the battery back in the phone and it should be OK

One trick for getting water out of things is placing them in a bowl of dry rice, rice is known for absorbing the water out of things. Also, when you dry it out, take the battery pack off separately in the bowl, that way the insides of it have a better chance of drying out. Leave it in there for a few hours and check if it works. If it doesn't leave a comment and I'll try my best to help.

Dropped my phone in sink of water

You may have caused a short in the device. Basically once your cellphone is exposed to water, the best solution would be to IMMEDIATELY remove the battery, and place the device in a bowl of rice. The rice serves to absorb the moisture, and within a day, should restore your phone :D.

It doesn't hurt to take it apart and dry it by hand though, but by trying to use a non-dry phone you may have to get a new one.
