    Put it in a bed of rice for a good while!! I know my frinds dropped his iPhone in the bath, he dried it out and it turned on, but then it would freeze and turn off :/ ... Just sent him my broken 3G so he can hopefully make a hybrid phone that works!!

    Once the touch screen stop functioning, theirs no real way of fixing it unless you replace the touch panel, but since it fell in the water you may have other issues in the future than just the touch screen.

    Honestly, it would be a lot easier (and in the end cheaper) to just go to the Apple Store and get it replaced for $199 (in some rare occasions the Genius will do a one time free swap).
