Not me but my friend did and she set in rice for two days too. It worked okay for a week then tweaked out on her and she had to replace it. I hope yours is good. How did you drop it in the toilet? Lol
I've been able to rescue a number of electronics by drying them thoroughly.
I don't recommend dropping a touch-screen into oil.
I tried the rice thing when my now five year old drooled an old flip phone to death (she was just learning to cruise, and I thought the phone was out of reach while I was busy loading the dishwasher). Didn't work, but it might be because I was foolish enough to try to turn it back on first, instead of leaving the battery out until it was completely dry.
Yes. But I immediately opened it and took the battery out and let it dry that way. After it was dry I ran over the board with alcohol to remove some corrosion that had already started to form.
I had a dog chew mine up and he hit the record button when he did. It still played the recording of him chewing it up. Rice could not help it otherwise.
No, but I have always wondered if the bowl of rice method really works. Yay! That's good !
