unles you have insurance on the phone, att will not replace it.try 5 or 6 days in the rice. Other then that you can get a att gophone and put your son's sim into it or purchase a used phone off ebay. You can also check your home owners insurance to see if it will cover the phone

Re: water damage

The rice works, usually, but you have to leave it in longer than 10 hours. It also happened to my sister...her's fell in a toliet, though. Took out the batttery and Sim and left it in rice for 3 days. Phone still works!! Good luck!!
