How long should I keep my iphone in rice after dropping it in water?

Postby macdoughall86 » Fri Sep 23, 2011 2:10 pm

I just dropped my iphone 3Gs in a lake, VERY mad. it was only in there for about 2 seconds and i quickly grabbed it. I immdeiatley turned it off and put it in the bag of rice, since everyone is saying that works. Ive had it in the rice for about 15 hours now, and i just checked the phone and it said it needs to be charged. My question is should I try to charge it or leave it in there for a little bit longer?
Thanks

2-3 days, if the phone is not ok by then then it's a goner.

The longer, the better. Don't touch it and turn it on too quickly and don't try to plug it into the charger. (I hope you haven't done this because it's known to break what could have been mended).

Leave it there for at least 3 days. With a lake, I'd suggest at least 5-6.

(I looked into forums for specific phone companies and advice on/through their websites)

To be safe give it a whole day. Keep In mind the iPhone Is a computer and the water could have done some serious damage to it the rice trick usually only works on older type phones with less hardware but Im not sure it could work but leave it for 24 hours and then check it
