How long should I leave my water damaged iPhone in rice for?

Stupid me, forgot my phone was in my pocket while at a lake and the phone went in. It was underwater for a good 20 minutes before I realized I couldn't find it.

I took the sim card out and put it in rice in a sealed bag. I did not take the phone apart because I would probably do more damage than good. I've heard of them going through a washing machine and surviving, or a pool, etc. So I figured it was worth a try at least before buying a new phone.

It's been in rice a little over 4 days now. I'm wondering when I can take it out as well as how I should try to get it to work from here?

And as well, if I cannot get it to work what other phones will work with my sim card? I have 17 months left on my contract which is why I'm wondering.

It will work. I had the same problem and left my phone in the rice for a day and it turned on. Fully charge it before using it.

It should be done by now but leave it in for one more day to be sure all the water is dry or soaked up
