Fairphone 3 on water

Hello Community! My Fairphone 3 fell in the water on Sunday… it still worked and I didn’t worry. The next day it didn’t turn on and it’s been on rice ever since. Today I want to see if the rice tactic worked. Does anyone know what the steps would be to revive it? Thank you, community!

Have a look at the #waterwiki.
Here you can find what to do.
