Resilient Bold Safe After Underwater Trip!
So yesterday I put my bold on a shelf while fixing my WC tank, and it slipped and fell headfirst into the tank, covered only by the silicone holster everyone uses. Quickly noticing, I took it out and immediately removed battery, sim and memory card. and put it on top of the bed while googling a solution...
Enter, the rice bowl. I put it, screen up, inside a bowl of rice for 24 hours, battery alongside it. 24 hours later I took it out, put the battery in and tested it. SUCCESS! The phone worked fine, except for a few water spots inside the screen. I recovered every contact and setting and decided to put it back under the rice, see if the moisture goes away. I've read about spots lasting over a week or so (and I do have another bold around so I can just leave it there)
Any other suggestions mates? At least my baby is working now
