    I'm distraught. i just found out this morning that my phone had water in it, i had left it on a table that had water coming droplets. the little tab inside is pink, there was also so green crusty fluid inside near the sd card ( which still works) and the phone doesnt recognise the battery. everything else works. is it just replacement battery time or should i wait till it dries out completely to see how the phone works.

    You need to let it dry completely before trying anything..you could fry something
    remove the batt. and let it dry

    I was going to suggest the same thing as well. :)

    I had heard that some where, but fortunately haven't ever had to try it. :D

    I imagine you have to have the phone completely submerged into the rice for it to work.
