Default Help with Huawei Mercury

I dropped my phone in the toilet a couple days ago. I took battery out and put it all in a bag of rice for a day. The Sticker on the battery is red but the 3 white stickers on the back of the phone are still white. You can see water damage on the front. When I go to turn it on it will not load past the Huawei screen. Does this mean its shot? Or is there a way it can be fixed.

Try throwing it in the trash. Lol

Oops... I just dropped my 52" flat screen in the bath tub. -facepalm-

Actually, there are repair places that can usually fix water damaged phones, but I don't know how much it costs or if it would be worth it.
