That's right, folks. The phone is alive. I honestly can't believe it. I have very little faith, I guess, when it comes to these things. But, thanks to all who gave advice. Apparently rice works.
Some people on-line have said that their phones were resurrected after a week in the rice, but then they died for good a month later. I guess we'll just have to wait and see, but until then, I am definitely grateful.
