So until today it still works and hasn't caused any malfunctions? I also use that much amount of rice, enough to have it covered. Thanks for the info I'll be sure to not lay my hands on it even for a week if I have to.
I was thinking, the rice is not dangerous at all for the hardware inside the phone, right? Like it cannot create some kind of dust or anything that gets everything inside dirty.
