Luckily I had flushed before that happened :-D.

But full panic mode still. I had vacuum air in bottle, so I used that. And now I submerged it into a bowl of rice.

Now I guess I should pray to the almighty, or given the time of year, to the great santa?

So... anyone have experience how well Jolla C handles taking a dive into water?

A friend of mine had a Lumia 920 that fell on the toilet and tried the rice trick with no success
I disassembled the phone and place those litle silicone humidity bags for more than 24h
Assembled all together after that and for my surprise it turned on and is still working today

Just panic googled some instructions, and one of them said to use vacuum air. I guess it's to drive out the water. I don't really understand that instruction though, to me it would seem more likely to drive the water further inside the device.

best would be, for what i know, to put it in distilled water, then take it out and disassemble it and put into rice or something else able to absorb humidity.
distilled water to wash out salts cause they are culprits of water damages

You're right. If this Sailfish device breaks down just because it sailed in calm waters of toilet, it's definitely something that warranty must cover.

Or in a motor spares shop (some car batteries need topping up with distilled water).
