Anna, not sure what the "slip and slide incident" entailed but if it with submerged in any liquid, the "rice trick" is only basic fist aid. It will not fix your phone nor will it prevent any corrosion. For that you will have to disassemble your phone and clean everything with 90%+ isopropyl alcohol. When you say that your speaker does not work, try a head set and see if that makes a difference.
