Can't believe it still works. My blackberry got knocked off the dash in my boat and was under water for about 10 secs.... I took it home and removed the battery, put it in a plastic bag, with some rice and left it off for the night.

Works like a charm still:thu:

Rice? Interesting trick - is that supposed to absorb the moisture?

Same reason you get grains of rice in salt shakers

Nice tip, remembering that one for the future

Yes, it absorbed most of it and then when I plugged it in the next day the heat from charging dried the rest out..:)

I hope you never need it but good to know.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
