Just leave it alone for now and go back to it when the rice defrosted. Get a tooth pick and try to get it out of there gently and if that doesn't work go to your provider and hopefully they can be of some use. Good luck OP :)
I had a similar rice problem when getting water out of my iPod after dropping it in the toilet. First, let it thaw. Then, wait a good 24 hours with the phone in the bag of rice, changing the rice if necessary. At this point, if the rice has done it's duty, your phone should turn on. Lastly, carefully use tweezers to remove any rice stuck in the charger or headphone jack. I had about ten pieces in my iPod. It was worrisome at first, but the right tweezers did the trick. Good luck, OP!
I have this feeling the op has only done it for 10 minutes. I've always read du the outside, put in a bag of rice (probably a 1lb size bag), leave somewhere fairly warm (airing cupboard if it doesn't get too hot) and forget it for 24 hours. Hopefully op reads all this and his phone survives!
theyre thumbing you down but the rice thing doesn't work, its all part of the racist 'put it in rice so asians come and fix it' joke...
Oh crap. You probably should have wiped as much snow as possible off first. It'll defrost and f it doesn't, it's probably not too hard to chisel rice away.
