The rice trick is not as effective as silica gel. Go to Michael's or another craft store and find a big can of silica gel used for drying flowers. Yes, the same stuff that comes in little packets in electronics and clothes. Put the phone, disassembled, in a tupperware of silica gel and leave it for a couple days. That will suck ALL the moisture out of it. Has saved 2 Treos and a DASH. But those were because of rain/puddles and having an overzealous wife wash the pants with a phone still in the pocket.

I feel for you! Here was my experience with dropping mine in the toilet a few months back:

Blackberryxxx8217;s Donxxx8217;t Float - The Brad Report - The Personal Blog of Brad Pierce

Soaking it in alcohol to kill the germs and to dry it out, followed by letting it sit in a cooked bag of rice did the trick and brought my world phone back to life! Of course, by that time I had already purchased a new curve (which I love!). Now I've just got a spare!

Actually, the kitchen sink is one of the dirtiest things in the house. That and drinking fountains.

Default soooo crazy!

I am in total awe right now. Im one of those people with crazy imaginations and have wierd dreams all the time. Last night i had a dream that i pushed the red button and that button on the very top on the left. I think it has like a mute icon on it. and that my phone started up. I woke up very confused and was like "wtf, thats a mute button. That wont do anything" but i popped the SIM and battery in it and pushed the two buttons and it started up and EVERYTHING works. microphone, camera, everything. I feel stupid, yet amazed at the same time. A frikken dream led me to do something to make my phone work. Wish i would have had that dream sooner. hahaha. my god this is just too wierd. lol. thanks for all the advice everyone!

Be sure to report back to us when your keyboard stops working because you didn't give it several days to dry out as suggested.
