Can a cell phone survive the washing machine??

Ok it's in the 'Just for fun' section but I ain't enjoying this crap. I have a Motorola Razr and idiot me left it in the back pocket of my jeans, which I then tossed in the washing machine. Went through all cycles too. It looks ok, really clean and all, but will it work tommorow when I put the battery back??
(Yes I took the battery off asap and I'm letting the guts dry.)

  • So they can survive?? Would I be better letting it air dry or using the dryer?? I hate to fry it on top of electrocution. My poor baby, she's been so loyal, I hate for her to die like this...

  • I think I let mine air dry when it fell in the toilet (don't ask), but it was over a year ago and I can't remember...

  • I had a little silver nokia phone, and I left it in my pocket too, my husband took it apart, let it dry out, then put it back togeter the next day and it worked. So I think it can.

  • if it gets dried out really well my husband has actually had our cell phone go through the car wash while sitting on the hood of the car. when it got dried out all of the way then it worked again.
