    Most phone users regardless of make of device seem to agree the way to deal with it is something like this...
    1. First, avoid trying to power the device in any way while it's wet.
    2. Gently remove any obvious water externally and under any covers that are user removable. Also a little shaking out probably wouldn't do any harm.
    3. place the device somewhere the air is dry and warm enough to evaporate water (but not actually hot) for a long time (several days). best if the air can get all around it and any user removable covers are removed.
    4. Now try the device and see if it works.

    Good luck.

    Put it in a sock and put that sock in a bag of rice. Let it sit for as long as you can. If that doesn't work, I'm not sure what will.

    (Being totally serious here. The rice draws the moisture from your device and it might dry it out enough for it to work again. I dropped my Passport into a bathtub full of water and I brought it back to life using this method. Still going strong over a year later!)

    It's not like buying another one is an option. Until they run out.

    I might actually get rid of this one on ebay because aside from CB10 it's a paper weight. And every time I look at it makes me sad.

    Water isn't what kills the phone, it's particles carried by the water. You have to clean the phone (if it's not already shorted) -- the best way to do this is with an "electronic cleaner", like CRC QD (Electronic Cleaner). You can spray this into your (battery-out) phone and it will wash out particles and it then evaporates.

    If the water is dirty rice will not help. All you're doing is allowing the phone to dry out, and if the water is clean, great. But otherwise you are doing nothing but allowing dirt to keep the battery shorted.

    As owners of golf carts know, dirty batteries can discharge due to the dirt (or dust etc) acting as a "ground".
