    My classic has taken a full bath and I didn't notice for a couple of minutes.

    Then, I have taken this out. And it's dead. I kept in rice for an hour and plugged charger. It was only blinking through led. Lost my hopes.

    On next day I have tried turning it on and it surprisingly it came up. I was very happy. But unfortunately I found touch, camera and keyboard backlight was not working.

    I have just used like that by using trackpad. After 10 hours of use, I found keyboard backlight started working and part of touch was also working. And I have found touch is 100% working after full restart.

    Can't believe, my classic is working agin. I lost hopes when it was taken full bath but it is surprisingly functioning. Great build quality.

    You should keep it under the rice for at least one day, not one hour....

    You should do a backup of all your data now while it's working, just in case it stops again.

    Agree, I've had two phone that took "baths".... Just because it seems to be good now, doesn't mean it will be a month from now.

    A good cleaning with an electronics clearer might save it.... if you dissemble it and clean each component and cable connection.

    The device is not waterproof. If your Classic took a full bath as described, it’s damaged and you don’t really know how much or when you could have problems. As others have stated, back everything up. It will operate until the original liquid contact eventually leads to rust or corrosion at some point.

    OK, I have taken back up. I really don't mean classic is waterproof.

    But I'm sure nothing happened to my phone as things got better from the worst unlike my q10 which had taken complete bath and gone permanently.

    Anyway, thanks for your suggestion. Let us see how it goes.

    If don't know hardware and never disassemble any phone. If I do that, it will be definitely damaged. I can't also taken to service centre as it doesn't exist in my city.

    I just wanna to use as long as it will survive but I believe everything is alright.

    Won't hurt to at least keep your backups up to data.... just in case it's not magic. Because it isn't waterproof.

    What kinda of water it fell into would also determine the "odds".... water itself isn't too bad, it's the chemical in the water that cause the issues. Dunk it a glass of distilled water, you might be fine. Dunk in a glass of treated City water full of a number of chemical, with some Mr Bubble for your bath....

    +100000! My phone went into a bootloop yesterday. Today it's fine but the first thing I did was backup EVERYTHING. You can never be too careful.

    It didn't fall into a glass of distilled water, unfortunately it fell into a bucket of hard water

    Haha!

    FYI,

    Hard water is water that has high mineral content (in contrast with "soft water"). Hard water is formed when water percolates through deposits of limestone, chalk or gypsum which are largely made up of calcium and magnesium carbonates, bicarbonates and sulfates.

    I'd still turn it off immediately and put it in a sealed bag of rice for 3 days.

    You just got lucky.

    Check again... Just checked this out from Wiki:

    Hey man, what's wrong with you? Yes, I have also copied from wiki. Otherwise, can anyone on this earth remember such a lengthy definition.
    At least is there a need to remember that definition?

    I think most people have an idea what hard water means, they're just pulling your chain for your original explanation.

    I'm guessing it's not personal just having some fun.
