I Hadn't Planned on Buying a New Cell Phone This Week

But that's exactly what I ended up doing! Mine decided to jump off my pjs Sunday night and go swimming in the (fortunately clean, or as clean as one gets) toilet! I quickly retrieved it and opened it out to dry it off. Nothing. The next day still nothing and when I called Verizon they suggested putting it in a bag of rice for 24 hrs as that might draw the moisture out. I tried it. It didn't work. Off to Costco I went today and now I'm the owner of a new cell phone. At least they had pretty eye candy flowers!

'HOT TIP, for wet cell phones!"

May I suggest, for future wet cell phone. Pull the battery out,turn your hair dryer on low. Don't get the inside of your cell to hot, do that a few times, then leave your battery out for 24 hours. Guess what it works, I dropped mine in my hot tub (102 degrees) and it still works!
