    Default Water Damage Help!

    I have a question about water damage on my Skyrocket. On Saturday night (9/29) my child accidentally threw up on my phone. He wiped it off and such, but didn't tell me until morning. I tried to turn it on, without checking whether or not the water indicator had been tripped. After trying to turn it on, I looked at the battery and saw that the indicator had turned red. I put the phone in rice a few hours later, and its been sitting in rice for about a day now. Will the phone work again? Help would be greatly appreciated.

    Did you try putting it in a bowl of rice to see if it could've absorbed anything?

    He actually said that he put it in rice for a few hours.

    Other than that I dont think the phone was able to absorb any substantial amount of liquid from you throwing up. You could give it a whirl and see what happens .
    As in certain cults it is possible to kill a process if you know its true name.
