I've heard it explained that rice does very little actually. Since rice doesn't actually pull moisture from the air (if so, every unsealed bag of rice would eventually soak itself) it would actually need to be touching the water inside the phone and even then the absorption rate would be quite low.
What is actually needed is something designed to pull moisture from the air, such as those "do no eat!" packets found in some packaging.
