Never thought I'd do it but I DrOped my phone in water.

So I have it in a container with rice, how long should I leave it in there?

  • Leave it in there 24 hours or until it works. If you don't have to send it back to replace it, keep it. It may dry out over time. I've had one heal it self after a while.
