Dropped your BlackBerry Phone in Water?

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.
