    I dropped my phone in the toilet and removed it immediately. I put it in a bag of rice a few minutes later. It was in the rice for probably 5 hours. I then took it out and tried to charge it. The lightning bolt showed for a second then went away. Did I ruin it by trying to turn it on too early? I put it back in rice right after...

    Hello. Ideally you need to bathe it in Isopropyl Alcohol (easily available, different names) to rinse out impurities in the water that will short circuit a board.

    Try this guide and you can ask more there :
