My daughter got something on her cell phone which made the screen funky. I've heard of putting it in rice - would that be raw rice or cooked? she thinks it got a little water on it.

  • I'm sure that would be raw rice. It is suppose to dry stuff out.

  • Take the back out, there should be a white dot under the battery, if the dot is pink or red, or somewhere in between, then yes it's water damage. There is also a white dot on the battery... Same rule applies there, pink red water damage. If not, it might be something else. But yes, a bowl of raw rice, over night might help. Doepnt expect it to fix the problem.
