    I dropped my samsung galaxy s3 mini in the toilet, got it out straight away, took it apart, dried it all with a towel then put it in a sealed container with rice. Now wont turn on at all. HELP

    It helps if you put the container in sunlight. Until all of the water is evaporated from your phone, it most likely won't work. I recommend leaving it in the rice and not turning it back on for at least 24 hours. Lots of factors go into whether the rice trick will work. Good luck.

    Welcome to the forum. It sounds like you did everything right. Assuming the phone was on, did you pull the battery immediately or try to turn it off first? Only other thing I can suggest is gently heating with hair dryer for awhile.

    If you connect your S3 mini to its charger, does the LED indicator light at least show? Trying to determine if it's maybe just a power issue or did some vital component get shorted out.
