I never ever join forums although I occassionally use their advice. Having dropped my precious device under water I turned to this forum. I would like to add my thanks to those people who take the time to write in and offer help as by using the following the phone ressurected itself after 2 days (and people sometimes refer to it as the Jesus phone). The steps I followed were as follows: Do not turn it on Tip it up and lightly shake out the water Blow dry at a distance for 15 minute periods on and off for a while Wrap it in a bag of dry rice and put near the boiler /radiatior for 2 days Change the rice daily After 2 days plug it in and charge it - it worked !!!!!! £150 saved I am inclined to offer a drink to anybody visiting the south of england but then this would probably use up the £150 I just saved.
