Accidental water damage : iPhone 4

Text:

Hi,
My Iphone was put into water by accident for an hour or so while it was charging. I noticed it just after trying to open it afterward (the camera lense has tiny dew drops in it). Now it won't open but the flash is light. Do you think it's still salvageable? And if so, how? I've heard of putting a phone into a bag of rice to dry it. Urban legend or not?
Thanks!
== Update ==
It is now sitting in rice since last night. The drops of water in the lense are gone so I guess its workin but it still wont turn on. Should I wait a few more days? Or is it dead?
Thanks!
