The problem with milk is residue. Water is pretty much just water with small traces of suspended solids so dry uncooked rice works well to draw out the moisture from a phone that was dropped in water. However with milk, the rice will remove the moisture but will leave behind all of the mild residue. What will happen with that residue? It is hard to tell. I don't believe milk residue is corrosive. If so it is possible your phone may work. However, electronics and moisture do not mix well so it is also possible your phone is completely ruined. You have learned a valuable lesson - keep electronic items away from liquids.

Milk is definately not good for phones! Nor is coke. Take out the battery, sim, mem.card and dry off with paper towel especially around the contacts. Dry the rest slowly, blow out body with compressed air (garage air hose will do) and hope for the best.

Give a few hours to a day let it sit in the rice so it will absorb the liquid
