    that statement is not always correct.

    toilet + anything != bad. I can think of at least two or three things I wouldnt want anywhere but the toilet, lol.

    toilet + anything electronic = usually bad [correct]

    Glad to hear it, Kristen! Mighta shoulda left it in a little longer and maybe that screen blotch would've gone away as well.

    ::edit:: Mighta shoulda? Ugh. I think I'm becoming a North Carolinian!

    Metallica, was awesome! Thanks for asking!

    I don't think I could have made it another day without my phone. The blotch is barely noticeable.

    Cx7, You were smart to remove the battery, SIM and media card right away. One other thing you can do when you think it's all dried out and before you reinsert the battery, etc. is you can put it it an oven, wrapped in a soft, dry cloth, on its lowest setting, with the door open but don't leave it more than 2-3 minutes at a time. You can put it back in for another session but don't let it get very warm - be careful. (I saved a pager a few years back that "jumped" into the toilet. I removed the back, battery, etc., and did this after it had been open for about a day. It went back into service without a hitch.)

    As said previously, the object is NOT to get it hot. The object is to eliminate all the moisture. If you're not comfortable with my suggestion DO NOT try it. All you're trying to do is put it in an atmosphere that will eliminate moisture. Good luck.

    I had it in my sweater, and it slid out. It did the same thing several weeks ago when I was on vacation and it ended up in the trash. I just wont be putting it in that sweater pocket ever again.

    A few years ago my ex's phone decided to take a swim with the turkey in the sink. I took it apart as much as I could, laid it on a rag, laid it on a heater, 2 days later it was good to go. What jblackfish said is so true, never give it too much heat! I've had friends come to me with phones that they've blow dried, and it's completely dead.

    Glad you got it back!

    I'm terrible with phones I decided to use the black silicone skin on my phone and it gives my phone grip. I could put my phone in my shirt pocket and stand on my head and it won't slide out of my pocket. It might be an option for your sweater issue.
