    Another tip I got from another site is to put your wet phone in a baggie or ziploc bag with uncooked grains of rice in it and let sit for a day. The rice absorbs all the moisture in the phone.

    I agree. It actually happened to me already. My phone was just in my pocket all the time and then one day it started having issues. When I took it to a repair shop the tech told me that the phone's wet indicator appeared red but I swear I haven't gottn the phone wet, and then the guy said that putting the phone in the pockets can attract moisture build up inside the phone

    Here are steps for how I saved my wet blackberry -

    1 - Immediately remove the device from water (obviously)
    2 - Remove the battery
    3 - Dry with a paper towel
    4 - If you have a vacuum cleaner you can try removing the majority of the water using the vacuum. This will get more of the wetness removed from under the keyboard, etc. (Do not use a blow dryer)
    5 - Place your phone in a bowl / bag of rice for 24hrs. I personally used white rice...
    6 - Cross your fingers and say a prayer

    Do not try to turn your phone on during any of these steps because you may cause further damage by shorting out something.

    Good luck - hope this helps.

    Take the battery out and put the phone in to a bowl of rice, Yes plain dry uncooked white rice and let it sit for about 24 hours. The rice will draw the water out of the phone.

    it really works I have used it several times.

    Great post but you missed the best solution: Bheestie bags. Check this out: BHEESTIE Bag® - dry out a wet cellphone, iPod® or other small electronic. Drop it in...Dry it out!

    The best solution I've had, and recommended to customer's when they've called me ( I work for a major provider)...is rice.

    Get a ziplock bag and take anything thats suppossed to come off your phoen off- battery/back, etc. Put them in the ziplock bag with 1 cup of uncooked rice. Then close the bag. The uncooked rice will pull the moisture from the air, and the inside of your phone. Leave it in overnight. The sooner you do this the better. Same day would be great, but works well up to a couple weeks after getting wet. And best of all, its free! And service and repair won't cover water damage, you better have insurance or an upgrade avail. If you have an upgrade, best resource I've found is www.cellphonehelp.org for cheap replacements.
