    I think your done. Try immersing your phone is a bucket of white rice for a few days to suck out the moisture.

    Most water logged phones are damaged when they are turned on whilst still wet.
    Water does not damage electrical things until a current is passed through them.
    For anyone reading this thread if you accidently submerse your phone in water, take it out, remove the battery as soon as possible, take the phone apart as much as you can without resorting to screwdrivers, torx drivers etc and as everyone else suggests, immerse in dry, uncooked rice. My ex had a 30 second dunk in a brook in Lincolnshire with her Nokia and everything, apart from her wi fi, was working perfectly.

    Re the above, turning on does the most damage but water does corrode components naturally.

    If its not in a bowl of rice within 10 minutes without being powered on, you'll be lucky
