    1) place Q10 on work surface

    2) over vigorously swipe on screen

    3) watch as, in slow motion, the Q10 cartwheels off the edge directly into smallest dogs full water bowl

    4) 10 minutes cleaning up mess

    5) wipe down Q10 and note no ill effects

    6) relief

    Uh oh! Do put it overnight in a baggie of rice, sometimes water damage takes a while to appear :/

    I agree. I would immediately shut off, remove battery, and put in bag of rice for minimum 24 hours. Better safe than sorry.

    Op probably hasn't been back since I'm guessing his phone quit working a few hours after the incident.

    Never keep using a phone after it gets seriously wet even if it looks fine. Always dry it out first. Always remove battery or power down if battery cannot be removed.

    Refreshing to hear a story about a phone falling in the dog's water bowl rather than the typical story about the phone falling in the place the one-handed, toilet-texters drop them...

    The phone's still going strong - I didn't take any precautions aside from drying it. It bounced in and out so wasn't immersed for long, just long enough to make a mess.

    As much as anything, I'm impressed with the number of times I've dropped it onto a hard surface and it's seemingly had no effect.

    Great little phone.
