Buy a bag of dry solid rice, put your phone in a sealed container with the battery and sim card and memory card removed and wait 24 hours. This does work as i have experienced with bold 9900!

No. It's too late for that.

Obviously worth a try. If its broke already, its worth a shot to absorb the liquid.

OBE now for certain.

Even back then, it was pretty clear from OP that device had met its demise.

I was very lucky with my incident - the 9310, in it's holster, fel in the water. I immediately retreived it, extracting the battery and submersed the device in rice, overnight. In the morning, installed the battery and the device functions as normal. This occurred in November, 2012...
