Dropped in pool for a bit, was in rice for 48 hours, plugged in and it got hot right away - any suggestions?

Rednboys, well it sounds like your phone had some fun! Many times putting a phone in rice will help temporarily, but if your phone is still overheating and not working correctly it will need to be replaced. Do you have insurance on your phone? If so, make a claim on Also, check to see if you have an upgrade available by dialing #UPG.

Let me know if you have further questions.
