    Take the back off, battery and cards out, dry them all thoroughly, leave the device to dry. Perhaps gently blow the jacks with a warm hair dryer to help. In my experience, you will eventually get corrosion damage from the water..
    In the interim, if the device works, use it once you're sure it's dry inside and out.

    thanks just ive had it in rice for a few days now and nothing really has been changing i hope what you've said works perfectly fine because i really dont want my parents to spend money on something that can be fixed on its own

    Please keep us updated on this situation. Does your carrier have any kind of loaner phone program for you if you need to get your phone refurbished?
