The answer to the phone with water in it is twofold. First of all turn it off the second you realise it has moisture in it. The electrical charge from the battery is going to cause major problems so cut the power immediately. Second, get a sandwich bag or other receptacle and fill it full of dried rice. Place the phone in the bag with the rice. Now, place it in a generally warm place, the best place is an airing cupboard. Levae the soaked phone for 24 hours (I know a terrible hard challenge for most of us) and then check and see what condition it is in. If it’s still dripping then leave it. But if it feels dry then give it try.
