Wait 48 hours minimum before putting the battery back in.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

No need.
Forget the rice; just take out the battery bang out as much as you can. Let it sit for about 3 -4 hours the take a blow dryer and dry it. Don't get too close as to not melt anything inside.

Let it sit till the next morning all will be fine.

If the battery was in it for more then 3 min (sometimes even less) say bye bye phone...

I work in the cell phone industry and this is my experience for many many cases.
Money talks...mine says goodbye!

One of my all time favorite things I learned from ddf
They say that if you bury your electronics in rice and leave them overnight, the rice will attract Orientals who will come and fix your device for you.

I was looking for that one.   That was the first thing that came to mind when I opened this thread.

How long to wait? I need the phone
U got to give it a day or two

Yeah, I "conveniently" walked into a lake with my phone in my pocket on a Friday afternoon, so I decided to just wait until Sunday to take it out of the rice, and it worked like it did before.

What do I do now?
Microwave on high for 30 seconds.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Its nature is to absorb all the water in its reach.
