    I read in Popular Mechanics that those little silica gel packs that come in electronics do the trick. Get a bunch of these and place the phone in them.

    If you didnt remove the battery right away you might be screwed. I have dropped mine in the river twice. Pulled the battery ASAP and let it dry out for a few days and it was good to go.

    I had a pager go swimming years ago. I drown it with rubbing alcohol then set it in the windsheild of the truck for a day. (batt out of course) Good as new. The alcohol mixes with the water & then takes it with it when it quickly evaporates. Don't know if this would damage the screen on a cel though.

    Yep. Dropped a pricey camera in the river. Ripped the battery out, put it in the sun for the rest of the day and didn't turn it on for two days. Works like a charm now.

    May sound corny, got drunked up with RCL one night, came home and was fiddling with phone when I dropped it in dogs water bowl, pulled it out of water, thought for a second , then took out battery and put phone in toaster oven for 10 minutes at 150 degrees (funny what you think after a few) needless to say phone works great, but dont know if I would do it sober!!

    I gave mine a bath of iso alcohol after my phone took a swim with me at the 2009 circle sprints at Marine Stadium... I didnt want to leave the salt residue in the phone... Does your phone use a SIM chip??? If so you can go buy a $20 go phone from best buy and swap in your SIM until you get your old phone going...

    Silica Gel is an excellent way to save a phone or camera (or any other electronic gadget that has no business getting wet) that has fallen in the water. It is usually best to buy it fresh, there is no way to know how saturated the packets that come with new electronics are. I got a bunch for various uses around the home and boat from www.silicagelpackets.com. Taking the battery out and placing both the phone and the battery in an airtight container with Silica Gel for a couple days should do the trick. The Silica Gel is faster than air drying and less dusty than using rice. Hope this helps!
