    Makes note to self: Phone and SD cards like beer better than booze.

    Try rubbing alcohol to clean that volume slider. The phone seems to have become an alcoholic

    You should have "rinsed" it first before drying it out.

    My old Palm Vx went through a full wash and I let it dry out and still works fine.

    How did it fall in there?

    I put rubber skids on the back so it won't slide out of shirt pocket when leaning over.
