Default Is my baby Esteem going to be fine lol

My phone dived for about 1/4 of a second down the toilet -___-
this is what i did step by step.
I grabbed the phone dryed it with a towel
Remove battery
dip in dry rice to suck all the moist
leave it on the sun screen facing down
now its on rice again.
*No I haven't turned it on; I dont wanna risk it short circuiting the motherboard*

what are the chances its still alive?

Get some of those moisture packs(ya know like in beef jerky-you keep the packs and send me the jerky)
Wait at least a few days before attempting to turn it on-fingers crossed for ya

no screen damage only problem is that my sim card is wrecked. Am I screwed?

I found my phone I previously had lost and got a replacement. The phone I lost was blacklisted, now that i found it can I unblock it?

the esteem has a dedicated "simm" card. one per phone... but i think ive read mixed revies about corprate store being able to replace them or reprogram to your phone or something to that nature. i would call metro and see what they say. *IF* they can do something for you it will *probally* cost you. best of luck.

Hey bro i went to an authorized dealer and they took my phone, removed the generic sim lol, sprayed it with cold air, placed a new one, programed it on my face and it worked, but the problem is that speakers got ruined. Is there a way to remove them from my old one and replace them?
