    ...just wondering if the aforementioned 'fix' really worked... the rice, that is.
  • Jennifer 7y

    lol I think (hope) melt was kidding about the rice. The phone had to be sent in. Actually, I don't think it's even fixed yet!

    I was kidding but I've heard if you get water in your electronics, it's worth a shot tossing em into a bucket of rice. Draws the water out.

    yea the rice trick is legit. my notebook got some water in it once but i didn't have that much rice so i just let it bake in the sun for about 30min and after that it was good as new. i've also heard that kitty litter works equally well.

    Yes. This just happened. Were you able to fix it and if so what did you do?
    Thanks,
    Bob

    Oh no! I'm so sorry Bob! When this happened to my friend Josh's phone he, luckily, had just gotten the insurance on the phone, and they replaced it for him.
