  • Try taking the phone apart (the back, take the battery out) and keep it seperated. Set all of the pieces in a bowl of uncooked rice. Sometimes this helps to get the moisture out of the nooks and crannies! Someone told me that putting the phone, taken apart, in the freezer helps too.... have never tried it though.

  • I've seen the rice thing work on tech spots on my news.

  • And if none of those things works... contacts can be recreated via your previous phone bills.

  • You need to take it apart right away, and put all of the components in a bowl of rice

  • Take it apart right away. Dry it as much as you can and put it in a ziplock bag of uncooked rice overnight. (24 hours)

  • Clean it with a dry clothes, then front it in the fan. After it is thoroughly dry, call a technician to check it.
