    I always love hearing the rice thing, makes me chuckle every time.
    For the op, leave the handset somewhere dry and warm for three or four days to let it dry out.
    Your warranty is unlikely to cover accidental water damage (and there's stickers inside the device that change colour once wet so any service centre will know what happened to it, even if you tell them something else).

    that's not a way. rice has to come in contact with water to absorb it. I I tried it as well:P

    Not necessarily, it just has to be nearby since rice absorbs moisture.

    Here's a good resource, its an Android site, but applies to any mobile phone independent of OS.
    So you got your phone wet... what can you do to try and save it? | Android Forums

    Also, you didn't wait long enough.
    Something shorted I bet, without hardware repair, the best we can hope for is a semi-recovery.

    I doubt it will be fixed under warranty since it covers manufacturing defects, not destruction by the end user.

    When there is water in the phone it is always good to try and mix some electricity into it repeatedly by insisting it will run now, it will run now, it will run now...
