    People always say to put the phone in a bag of rice (once you turn off the phone of course) but I never done it so I can't tell.

    The idea is that the rice absorbs the moisture from the phone and therefore gets rid of the water.

    Get a Ziploc bag, fill it halfway with dry white rice, put the phone in the bag of rice, leave the bag unsealed, and place it in a sunny window or area that gets a lot of sunlight. The water will evaporate due to the energy from the sunlight and be absorbed by the dry rice. Now, the phone might already be ruined, but this will definitely get the water out so that you can see if it still works.
    I'd leave it in the sun for a couple of hours at least.
    Hope you get it working again.
