iPhone won't turn on after dropping it into tea

I dropped my iPhone In my tea..i got it out Almost immediately tryed to turn it on but it did nothing but vibrate could have been dead b4 the fall?. I immediately googled it.. Pushed pwr and home, it stopped vibrating, then remembering the rice theory, ran to the kitchen... No rice..except flavored.. Oops. Anyhow I got the plain white rice soon after and I toggled between the rice and heat and air in a can..for about 3-5 days never plugging it in..I read 1 rule ..NOT to do that .. Any how when I did finally plug it.barely could see like the X-ray of ther charger on the screen and 3 weeks l8ter still nothing..I'm scared to trouble shoot/open it on my own fear of voiding warranty?? So is there any hope. It's barely 6 mo. Old if even...

Plz help!!!! Thx!!

crazecoolfemale, the only way to get to fix it, is by opening it. Even so you tried the rice trick, you might now be dealing with corrosion as well as the possibility of a shortcircuited component. Use this guide for the cleaning. it was written for a 3G but applies to your phone as well. Here arethe guides to work on your phone. Replace the battery and reevaluate your phone for any damage. It is very difficult to troubleshoot unless you have it disassembled and evaluated. If you are unsure of doing this yourself, you might want to try one of the many commercial services available. Just Google "water damaged iPhone" and you will have plenty of choices. Hope this helps, good luck.
