    Hi, I got a 16GB Samsung Galaxy S3, and I accidentally spill water on my phone yesterday. I removed the battery right away and put it in a bag of rice for about 24h. Now when I tried to put the batter back, the phone is still working but there is a weird sound in the back amplifier, like there is water in it. Please help me! Thanks

    back in the rice bag for a bit (24-48 hours if you can live without your phone for that long).

    Agreed, you should leave it in the rice for a minimum of 48 hours, 72 would be better.
