    I accidently dropped it in the sink and well I got it wet. Luckily, I had my case on it and it didn't get as wet as it could've. My phone worked except the speakers weren't working. My dad got some air thing and got most of the water out for me, and the speakers worked once again. My phone is currently in the tubberware filled with rice so it can remove all of the water inside. How long should I leave it in the rice, and how long should I wait to charge it? Also, the water sensor in the earphone input didn't change color but the one where the charger goes did change a little. Does that mean I no longer have warranty?

    Thanks.

    I just dropped my phone in the toilet last night lol

    So I put it in rice till this afternoon then opened it up and put it on the car hood to dry more.

    Maybe you want to put it in the rice for about 2-3 day...although you didnt say it got that wet?

    Well I mean it still worked perfectly so I guess it didn't get too wet. Right when it fell in, I quickly took it out and dried it

    Don't press any buttons while its wet or else the circuits could short.

    Why would you use it after dropping it? Just place it in a bag of rice.

    Yeah, I'm gonna leave it there for about 2-3 days. It should fully dry up by then because my dad removed most of the water so yeah

    When you take it in for any warranty work the first thing they will look at is both water indicators. Because yours is even partially red (or pink) then yes your warranty is now void.
