Thanks guys for your hope

Usually the water will only freeze the phone and will remain on until you take the battery out or the battery power is depleted.

Just take it apart and put it in the bag of rice and forget abut it for a couple of days (*you should have already done this by now*).

As for the alcohol cleaning I'v never done that. The idea of the alcohol is to prevent rust but the rice will remove all humidity out of the phone.

Ok so after 4 days of drying, it now shows a triangle and a battery symbole.
Better than nothing i suppose, at least the screen seems to be working
Does anybody know what that symbole means? Is just the battery faulty(my hope)?

Great news! I had the chance to try a battery from a friend, and it worked!!
Already ordered a new one, although I am not sure, maybe the voltage from the old one is just too low and recharging would solve the problem, but dont want to risk anything

Thanks for your responses all
