    I have a Motorola Rokr z6m, i dropped it in a mop bucket about 4 months ago and now i did it again today. So i put the phone in rice the first time and it survived. So do you think if i do the same steps again will the phone last after the second time? I did not push the on button or any buttons to see if the phone would work, i immediately pulled the battery.

    I have a picture, the screen in brown, what is up with that?
    O, and the white fuzzes is tissue paper, that i used to clean the display.

    Thanks in Advance!

    Brown screen = dirty water.:p

    Just let it dry out again and use last procedure w. rice. Your screen is brown probably because water got in between display and glass/plastic covering this time. It may or may not come back. What's worse is it comes back and only part of it works. Guess I know what you'll want for Christmas!;):apple:

    Please use TIMG tags rather than IMG tags for large images.

    You can also put your oven on the lowest setting and let it 'bake' for a few hours.
