Putting the phone in a bag of rice helps absorb the water.
The most important step for the protection of your cell phone is to make sure you have a cover. Most of the time, when a phone is dropped into a puddle or is near water, the phone is susceptible to being harmed. By owning a case, the water may not seep through it and damage the phone. The time it takes for water to seep through the phone is about 20 seconds or less, so it is important to act quickly and dry the phone as soon as it is wet, without turning it on in case of a short circuit.
I agree with @tavenger5.. So damn true he is..
I know this topic is too old but still it's useful. This are the steps i used to do if my cellphone is wet.
1.It's advisable to take out the phone out of the water fast.
2.Is to remove the battery, sim and memorycard and wipe it with towel or piece of cloth to dry.
3.Is to use vacuum cleaner on your cellphone to dry it up
4.And put your cellphone into a bag of rice for 1 week. Because rice draw out moisture on your wet phone.
After 1 week you can test your phone i hope it works.
You can put the phone in a bag of rice for drying.

If your cellphone gets wet, than simply extract the cover, battery, simcard, memory card and than use blower to dry it. I have done the same thing with my Gionee M3 and its working as like before. One more thing you can do is dry it in sunlight.
My daughter once put a phone into water and I had to change the display.
I saw some new hi tech process whereby your cell phone gets - what I can only describe as 'fumigated' with something that lays down a layer of nano particles over every internal and external surface, completely waterproofing it. I wish I knew what the process was called!
