What should you when you accidentally drop your BlackBerry mobile phone in water or the toilet? Well, soak it in rice.

This piece of advice has been around for a while but now it has received the official stamp of the BlackBerry support team as well.

When actress Denise Richards wrote on Twitter that she had dropped her BlackBerry in a swimming pool, the BlackBerry guys responded almost immediately saying:

One thing you can try is putting your BlackBerry smartphone without the battery in a bag of rice and leave it overnight.

The rice trick probably works but make sure that you remove the battery before placing the wet phone into rice.
