    I did that with my Blackberry a long time ago.

    Anyways, people don't actually know water is an AMAZING way to clean electronics (Motherboards, etc.), but the thing is you want it to be dry as HELLLL when you make electricity shoot through it again.

    What you should've done is after it dropped in, was take out the battery/cover, clean out everything thoroughly, dry off as much as you can, than lean it up against something so it's on an angle, and let it dry out. Or put it immediately in a jar of rice and let it sit there for a few days.

    You seriously want everything to dry out for a few day before even putting the battery back in.

    i see. well the toilet drop was no more than 2 or 3 seconds. i dont know if that changes anything. you think it'll be ok after about a day of rice drying?

    hey at least you didnt forget it in a pocket and run it through the clothes washer.
    I did that with a moto razor a long time ago, damn did I kick myself.



    It sure did look clean when it came out of the wash machine though:D:D
