So yesterday I got home late and needed to throw in a load of laundry before going to bed. I turn it on and walk away, a few minutes later im looking for my phone and realize it may be in the wash. I run out and find it submerged in the water. It wasn't in too long(maybe a few minutes). So I pulled it out, hand dried it then put in a bag of rice to dry it out. I have a few questions for people that may have done this.
I'm not sure if the phone is on or off. My wife tried calling it while I was looking for it(when in washer) so im not sure if that killed it or if it just died. When I pulled it out I tried turning on once or twice and it didnt, so not sure if it was her call, phone died, or just a fail safe that if submerged it turns off.
My question is has anyone here ever done the rice method? Does it work? How long did you leave it in the rice? Any tips suggestions? I'm so pissed off with myself as for all the years I've had a phone I've taken tremendous care of them, never having even a cracked screen(def no water damage) and now this happened. Any advice would be appreciated.
