Ok so my buddy has a nextel curve and he dropped it in a water puddle today. Anyone have any tricks or anything that could get it back up and running. And yes there's a red dot behind the battery pack.

The rice really does work. It does suck out all of the water. In my case, it wasn't able to save my Curve because I wasn't able to take out the battery and keep it from frying the phone (washing machine). Hopefully your friend was able to take it out quickly.
But he dropped the whole phone in the water. What good is the rice trick going to do if the hardware is damaged?
You can at least try. Then he will find out if the hardware is damaged or not. I have heard people dropping the phone in the toilet and did the rice trick and the phone still worked. So tell your friend to at least give it a try. Doesn't hurt
