Unhappy HELP!!!

I waterlogged my phone, let it dry but it won't come on at all. Is there anyway to get any data off of it (games, texts, etc.)?

Take out the battery, sim card, sd card if you have one, leave the back off and put it in a ziplock bag full of uncooked rice overnight with the battery. The rice pulls moisture out of the phone. The phone probably won't work 100% but it usually fixes it enough to at least turn it on and retrieve data.
Current Phone: Samsung Galaxy S III
Current ROM: SlimKat

Previous Phone: Samsung Droid Charge (sold)
