This post is just to say that unknowingly had my S3 in my coat pocket in the washing machine. I was alerted by the thumping sound in the dryer. Stopped the dryer and discovered the phone. I removed the 64gig card and my Hyperion 4200mah extended battery and put them in a plastic box with rice for 24hrs. The phone booted fine with its original battery after the 24hrs, but the camera was weird because of water droplets remaining under the glass in the lens area. Sound from the speaker was almost non-existent. My extended battery was destroyed and not recoverable. My 64gig card came up kinda weird, and after coaxing a bit had a full recovery. I further dried the phone on a vent which was not heated too much and after 2 days of drying on the heater it's back to 100%. Great camera and good loud speaker. Except for the accident, I think I came out pretty lucky despite the bad extended battery.
