Helpful tips, though I self taught myself the taking apart and drying step. I was running around crazy when my phone would just restart when it reaches the boot screen. First time I used my hair dryer in years xD. I think non uni-body devices have an edge here?

If you use a hair dryer, you will melt down every single solder in the phone.
(Because solder melts in low temperture levels)

Xperia Z is only water resistant if (Sony's Words): all the flaps are closed properly.
Only Sony defines what "closed properly" means

I dried the phone in the sun by removing all parts and then reassembled it and it worked for me.
LOL... There is a FACEBOOK group dedicated to people who drop their cellphones in the toilet.
BTW, very nice & helpful tips, dos and don'ts... but i don't understand the 'Bury it in Rice' concept. Can any1 explain, why?

You should eat the rice after it absorbs the toilet water.
