Soda with sugar leaves residue that acts like a conductor. In my experience the 1st thing to do is remove the battery. The absolutely most important thing to do whenever a device get wet is to remove all power supplies, both external and battery. If the phone is still wet submerse in alcohol to clean it out and let dry in rice. If the phone has dried out with the soda still inside submerse in warm water to "melt" the soda residue away, then dunk in alcohol and place in rice to complete the drying. This method worked for me on a camcorder dropped in a punch bowl and an illuminated gaming keyboard that got drenched in Sprite.
