Christoffer Solbrekke, as with any iphone, I strongly recommend that you clean it. Disassemble it by using these guides. Clean it properly using this guide. It was written for a 3G but all the points still apply to your phone as well. Once it is properly cleaned '''replace the battery" reassemble and re-evaluate. With a new battery and properly cleaned, you will have a good starting point should any further trouble shooting be necessary. Hope this helps, good luck.

Hey Christoffer, you can try drying the phone for two days using Rice or Silica Gel. Do not turn on your phone after water damages, dry first and then turn it on. If this does not work seek professional help. Please see the instructions here:

carolinemyers13 "for two days using Rice or Silica Gel" doe not do anything. Reice does not fix things and will not stop corrosion. Bad advise.....
