anonymous 3217, skip the rice. It will not prevent corrosion nor will it fix the phone, it is a very misleading myth. Using rice is about the same as doing absolutely nothing. The very first thing you want to do is to not try to restart the phone. This may further damage your phone. you also do not want to try to charge it any further. I suggest is that you stop using the device, (remove the battery) and totally disassemble it, follow the guides on here. Then clean it with +90% isopropyl alcohol. This will displace the water and stop corrosion. It it okay to submerge a board in isopropyl alcohol. Here is a guide for that. Even so it was written for a 3G, the procedure is still the same. After that, you can air dry all the components. Do not forget to clean the connectors on the board as well as the cables. Then re-assemble with a new battery This is not optional but a must to avoid failure later on. " Check your board for any missing or damaged component. It could corrosion or dirty contacts causing the SIM to not make good contact, it is also possible that the card reader and components are shorted out. You will have to take a close look at it while you clean your phone. Water damage is the toughest to trouble shoot and to repair.
