    Stick in a container full of rice for at least 24 hours and pray for the best. It has worked for us but I must say it was a quick dunk in water not a long time.

    I used the rice drying technique Ana mentioned more time than I care to admit. It worked every time. My next phone will be waterproof due to my clumsiness.

    You know those little packets you find in new handbags, shoes , and even some medicine bottles ? To keep them dry? I keep a large ziploc bag of those handy for just this purpose . So far, the same bag has saved two Iphones. After an hour in the bag, all is well !
