    The excessive humidity probably caused water to collect on the motherboard and something shorted out when you used the phone. If you were somehow able to recover it, I'd be amazed.

    And that's why you dont take electronics in the bath or shower with you.
    Stuff like that are very sensitive to moisture, steam, water are a big nono.

    I tend to bring mine with me but I cover it up. Leave it in the rice bowl for a day or two - a few hours won't make much of a difference.
