    Default Dropped Galaxy S4 in toilet but didnt remove battery immediately

    I need suggestions, I dropped my phone in toilet earlier, didn't have rice until about 30 min after the fact. I didn't remove the battery immediately. How long should I leave it in the rice? Cant lie I took battery out and dried the phone and put battery back in to check and the screen was black. Do you think 24 hrs in rice could bring it back?

    Welcome!

    That may or may not work. I would keep it in rice for at least 24 hours or more. Turning it on may have damaged something but let's hope for the best

    Well turned the phone on today and the only thing not working is that its not reading my sim card. Tried sim card in another phone and the card worked so anyone have any suggestions for the new issue?
