hi, you need to get it to someone to be cleaned as soon as possible . it will only get worse and be more expensive to repair the longer its left. Rice just won't cut it .

Try the rice trick. Put the phone in a container of regular uncooked white rice (enough to completely cover the phone), cover the container tightly, and let it sit overnight. Most people report that their phones (and other small electronics) work perfectly with no ill after effects after being dried that way. I even tried it on my hearing aids that I accidentally wore in the shower shortly after getting them, and they are still working perfectly. Throw the rice out for the birds afterward.

there is far too many components inside mobile phones now with all the features they have. it may work for a while but once corrosion sets in and spreads then your phone will eventually quit. this was fine in the old days of the old nokias etc when there was very little going on and for simple electronics it may be fine.
