    If it was on when it was dropped it, it's very likely toast. If you turned it on immediately after pulling it out, it's very likely toast. Let it sit for a few days in a container filled with rice, and see if it turns on then.

    Check the earbud plug with a flashlight.
    If there is a little sticker that is red or pink ... that means it is water damaged.

    Good advice. I did it with my Treo that fell out of my car face down into a muddy rain puddle. I yanked the batter out pretty quick and it came back to life a couple of days after sitting in rice but took a couple of months to get full keyboard usage.
