Hi MaTasia Truss the kid, listen to the old turkey, he knows what hes talking about. Tell your mom your going to need her help. 'DO NOT USE RICE ' Dont use that hair dryer either it will blow the water into other places that may be dry and make things worse . Do not to turn the phone on to see if it works until its cleaned out . If you are not willing to take the phone apart you can leave it to dry out naturally by itself . Remove the sim card leave the tray out and put it someplace dry and forget you have it for a few weeks. Then try it and hope for the best but understand it will not work for long it will now begin to corrode on the inside and will soon die a slow and annoying death . So tell your mom

MaTasia Truss you better let your mom know because you will have to work on your phone. You want to save the rice for cooking, it has no place in any electronic repair situation. It does not work and can make things worth. do not use rice

The very first thing you want to do is to not try to restart the phone. This may further damage your phone. The next thing to do is to clean it. Disassemble your phone using this guide Then clean it with +90% isopropyl alcohol. Follow this guide, and even so it was written for a 3G all the points are still pertinent to your phone. While you clean your board, check for any obvious damage, like burned or missing components etc. When it is properly cleaned, replace the battery. All these steps are to avoid delayed failure caused by corrosion. Once all this is done, reassemble your phone and reevaluate. Hope this helps, good luck.
