i dropped my instinct s30 when it was 2 days old while giving my baby a bath. (i was trying to take cute bubble bath pics)
someone told me a hot car dashboard works wonders, so i went for a 30 minute drive with my phone face down on a handtowel on the dash. just left it alone, didnt try to turn it on for the full 30 minutes. it was really warm outside, and the dash was really hot....

when i got home, i took my hairdryer and pulsed warm air all around any opening for another 10 mins, and the phone worked like new.
