    I was playing basketball this evening, then boom, it started to drizzle, I was walking home when it started drizzling, while I was walking, it started to rain really hard, so I ran, I drop my phone, back cover came off, battery came out, and cracked my screen, I reached my house and I blow dried my phone until it was hot, how long should I wait to turn it back on

    You should also leave it with rice.

    They say to leave it in dry rice for 2-3 days.

    Sucks about the screen, though.

    Pfft, I throw mine in the microwave then demand my carrier sends me a new one after it spontaneously combusts. Works like a charm!

    if you got nothing to loose I would go ahead and take it apart. My wife dropped her Fascinate in a creek while hiking where it lay for quite a while. I know that is a big difference and I'll skip the whole story, but if I had taken her phone apart rather then just but in rice I could have saved it. Because it did start to work, but then got worse and worse. Later to find out there was still water sandwiched deep into the phone. I know, a few seconds in water is different, but again if you got nothing to lose...

    Good luck

    That's not what came to my mind.

    Sounds like the OP is just young - must be some new expression for being in deep s.....

    In Jersey, if a girl tells you "I'm tight. Really tight", well, it's pretty literal.
    Half of them are lying, though

    When I saw this thread had so much potential for me to obtain an infraction I had to make a bee line for the back button. I'm proud of everybody for such good behavior all day. I thought for sure it would be locked up by tonight. As always, Dovakhiin, keepin it real.....funny.
