I had an accident with my phone – my prized Samsung S3 – the other day in that it fell out of my pocket ……and down the toilet!!!!
Please don’t laugh!!! I managed to whip it out within seconds, take it apart and dry it off with paper towels. A quick internet search suggested that the best thing to do was to leave the phone covered in rice for at least 24 hours – the theory being that the rice would absorb any water inside the phone. So, I hopped in the car, drove home, dug out a tupperware dish, filled it with rice and put in the various parts of my phone.
24 hours later and after a lot of crossed fingers, we put the phone back together and ..hey presto..it worked!!!
