    I recently visited Las Vegas. (Last weekend) While checking out Caesars Palace, I asked my wife to take a picture of me in front of a really cool fountain. Forgettting there was a hole in my left pocket, I hopped up on the ledge of the fountain and PLOP, in goes my motorola droid, Completely Submerged, I had a cover on it, which came off in the fountain. After a quick second of shock and awe, I instintivley grabbed the phone from the water about 2 feet deep, yanked the battery, and tried to blow on it to dry it off. My hopes of using the phone again were pretty much squashed. I had an Idea to stick my phone in a Black sock and hang it outside our hotel window. The outside temp in las vegas was around 115 farenheit so I figured that would atleast help pull some moisture out. Oh yeah, prior to that I tried a hair dryer which just made matters worse, I could see moisture under the screen. (SCARY!) Any ways about 5 hours later I fired it up and it has run flawlessly ever since! The water dot turned red, but I guess thats to be expected. I thought my phone was a goner for sure, thank you Vegas heat!

    Sounds like you got lucky. To get the last of the moisture out, let the phone sit in a bag of uncooked rice.

    I'd go for some more dry time. If there is still any water inside it could works its way to new area and still do some damage.
