Oh, how I wish I would have read this article a couple of weeks ago.

that's awesome that you didn't lose yours and brought it back to life.

I've heard never to turn it on if it gets wet, and that sometimes, it will dry out and live again. I'd never heard the rice thing before. And that silica stuff can be bought at craft stores, since it's also used to dry flowers. I'll keep this in mind when the next kid dunks a phone!

I dumped a phone I had in the toilet.
