Hello,

I suggest you allow it a bit longer in the rice, atleast 3-5 hours to help dry all the moist on the phone, if the problem still persist after the hours, am afraid to tell you that the phone is damage and will need replacement.

Take care.

Dropped phone in pool. Immediatly dried it out using the rice method( took battery out). 24 hours later put battery back in to see if phone worked and the "flash" light came on. Phone wouldnt turn on.


If you think you can do it taking the whole phone apart worked for someone i know. don't know if it's to late since you powered it up already. Probably worth a shot though.

Razr phone just fell out of back pocket into toilet. I took of back cover & removed battery. What next?


Dry the phone, battery, sim card, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke


I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

LCD display has water crystals inside. I dropped in water and immediately took off. But still display is blurred.


take off the battery cover and remove battery. Fill a bowl with 1" on uncooked rice, Place phone on top and cover with another 1" of rice. The rice will drawn the moisture out of the phone.
