How long should I leave my iPhone 4 in rice?

K Asked: How long should I leave my iPhone 4 in rice?

I went for a run with my iPhone 4 and ended up tripping in a big pot hole full of water. My phone never dropped out of my hand, but did submerge in muddy water. When I stood up, I was a bit in shock from the icy cold water, and didn't know to turn my phone off, nor did the phone turn off itself. When I looked at the phone, it was still playing music and the screen was on. When I got home I noticed the phone wouldmake outgoing calls but I wasn't able to hear the person on the other end. Ultimately, after playing with the phone for a few minutes, tried to turn it off and put it in rice. However, the phone wouldn't stay off, it kept rebooting itself and doing weird things like playing music or going to voice command. Then the home button stopped working. Eventually the battery died and I've kept the phone in a sealed container of dry rice since 14:30 yesterday. I've read that if the phone doesn't turn off right away, that it is most likely fried. Today at about noon, I took the phone out and the water indicators I can see are still white, so I decided to plug it in. When it turned on, everything seems to be working fine. So I turned it back off and just to be safe put it back in the rice. Do you think it's okay to take it out now since everything was booted up and seems fine, or should I leave it in rice until tomorrow morning?
