    Hi guys,

    I managed to drop my HTC magic in the toilet (whilst I was doing a wee).

    I immediately pulled the phone apart, dried it with paper towels, sprayed the entire phone down with R70 Revive-IT (a spray for water damaged electronics), then left it to dry in front of the heater.

    The phone is completely dried out, working ok...but I intermittently get no service. I've put the sim in my old Nokia and it is working fine.

    Maybe it needs some more time to dry out? It's been 3 days already.

    Any ideas?

    Wait, you were using your phone while taking a piss? Now that is Android Addiction to the max.

    Pretty sure it should be dried out within 3 days. Especially after a few hours in front of the heater. Not an expert tho.

    I don't know man. About a year back, I accidentally left a SonyEricsson dumbphone (solid phone) in my jean pockets while the jeans were in the washing machine (yup, it went on a full spin cycle). The phone was completely gone to shit (obviously) but the sim card still worked (still using that sim today).
