    Since you have turned on the phone after it was dropped into the water I would say your are S.O.L.

    Next time make sure you disassemble, as much as you can, any phone dropped into the water. Let them dry for at least 24-48 hrs before powering up. I have done this twice with success.

    You will need to send it into Apple for repair.

    Actually, next time leave it in a bag of rice and don’t turn it on. After a few days, then try it.

    I dropped my 3G in the toilet once. Disassembled like poster 2 stated, let it air out, put it back together, worked fine.

    Seriously with the rice? The concept makes sense, but wouldn't that muck up the phone?
