I have gone and done it. I dropped my phone in the loo. Took about a second or two before I pulled it out. I turned it off, took the battery out, tilted it against the wall and placed it on top of a sponge. I left it like that till today morning. I turned it on an hour ago, and it seems to be working fine, but I am still shitting myself that I broke it, so I place it back on the sponge and against the wall.

Am I in the clear? Will there be a few problems down the road? Rust and a water droplet frying everything are my biggest fears.

What make/model is it? Maybe try drying it out in a bowl of rice for a few hours to be sure.

You're probably fine: rust is not a concern once the water's gone and any droplet that could've fried it probably would've done so by now. Still, you'll probably want do the standard thing and put it in some (dry) rice or, better yet, in with some proper desiccant baggies like you get in packaging to draw any remaining damp out.

So you still had a piss even though your phone was in the toilet?

How long should I leave it in the rice for? I'm slightly wary of the battery as well. I don't want it to blow up on me.

I don't want to celebrate prematurely and be crushed later on.

Peel the moisture indicator sticker off the battery, so CeX will still buy it. They are white and unassuming unless it gets wet, then they go pink. If CeX/Game/wherever see it then they wont touch it with a barge pole but if it missing they'll buy it no problems.

Obligatory "put it in the microwave at full power for 30 seconds to dry it out" comment.

No. I took a shit. Flushed it and cleaned it a couple of times, and as I was leaving, the phone slipped out of my hand into the bowl. I dived right in and took it out, but there was a lot of air bubbles, so I thought a lot of water had gone in and it was a lost cause. Taking a piss the morning after was a bit triggering.

This is why insurance exits, m8. Accidents happen, innit.

Insurance exists to turn a profit for insurance companies. That they're doing well financially tells me I don't need insurance. I'll take my chances and be careful. After so many years without it I must have saved a decent chunk for contingency already.

Sounds to me like you've done everything right, bar sticking it in rice of course.

I'm using it right now. Everything seems to be working fine, but I'm just waiting for it to fail. I gave my phone cancer, and the waiting is the hardest part.

I don't understand this. The only factor is whether there is water in it or not that would short it. The longer you leave it to dry out before using it, the less chance there is of that happening. I don't think 'water damage' is an otherwise measurable thing as you seem to think.

What about corrosion? I let it dry for close to 48 hours. I doubt it can get any drier.

The whole point of insurance is that it's there if you need it. Not having insurance will, population wise, save money, but you aren't a population.

It's all in the sampling.
