At least that's what the corrosion on the logic board looks like - as though a tiny spider weaved tiny webs EVERYWHERE. Yep, the owner fessed up to tossing it into a bowl of rice before giving it to us. The phone had no signs of life and was dry as a bone when opened up. After a few rounds through an ultrasonic cleaner and scrubbing of all those tiny spider webs, the parts were dried out thoroughly, and the phone re-assembled with a new battery. Bam!!! It powered right up! Functions 100% Owner could. not. be. happier.
Rice could not stop corrosion like this from occurring, and this happens to nearly every electronic device that suffers water intrusion. Just another example of why rice is a bad idea.
