my son accidentally dropped my phone into the sink. It was only submerged for a couple seconds, but it turned itself off right quick. What are the odds it will survive once in rice for a couple days? I need my phone!! I got my provider to reactivate my good old Bold 9900 for now, since my BB is my ONLY phone, but I was loving my z10 and would be heartbroken if it can't recover especially since i'm still paying for it. any advice?

As long as the water exposure was brief the likelyhood of it working again is good
It's a good idea to remove the back, battery and suchlike so the rice can extract as much water as possible
Place it screen up, then switch to screen down after a good while, then repeat so gravity can aid the process
In retrospect it makes that stuff you can coat your phone in that stops stuff happening good value I guess (they do it on some Samsung Droid thing I believe but understand it can be done to any phone)
