consvers101, first off the rice should be in your soup. Using rice as a dessicant does do absolutely nothing. It is a waste of perfectly good food:-). Second you want to stop using your device. Remove the battery. Disassemble the phone and clean everything with high grade (90%+) isopropyl alcohol. Then replace the battery reassemble the phone and re-evaluate for further damage. Water damage is the most difficult to diagnose/repair since virtually any part can have failed. Hope this helps, good luck.
