    I dropped my iphone in the pool a couple months ago. Retrieved it and it wouldn't turn on. Immediately removed the screws and used a blow dryer to dry the insides. It was not working right for several days but eventually started working as if I never dropped it.

    Try that and see if it works.

    You can also take the battery door off, take the battery out and stick the phone in a Ziploc baggie full of rice for a day or two. That'll help take some of the moisture out. If it's water damaged to the point of no return, you'll have to get an insurance replacement.

    And I've heard it crucial not to use it, or even try to, until it's completely dry (so you don't fry it).

    Make sure the battery is removed, leave the battery door off, and place everything in a bag of rice for a week, and see if that brings it back.
