Someone mentioned covering it in a bowl of uncooked rice for several hours. this will help to dry out the phone although dropping it in the toilet may be the end of it...

Take the phone apart as much as possible and leave it in a bowl of uncooked rice for 2-3 days.

You should do this pretty much immediately and under no circumstances should you turn it on!

Using a vacuum cleaner to get as much water out as possible before putting it in rice is also a food idea.

NB. Getting the phone too hot could cause the water to turn into vapour and get deposited on other internal parts of your phone.

Dont do anything yourself. Just remove battery and cards and go to service ASAP. Even if you think its dry after day or two, few monts later you will have problems! Listen to me!

Next time when you dropped any electronic device into the water Do not turn on,
1.-Remove the battery immediately
2.-Remove micro sd card and sim card
3.-Try to remove the spills of water from the device with any blower machine (if its possible open it gonna be better)
4.-Leave it at least for 3 days (for a better result) inside of amount of dry rice (not cooked)
Good luck
