Did you dry the phone completely before you tried turning it on?

No he's right, dry rice is hygroscopic.

@OP - Don't use your phone for 2 days. When water fell on my laptop (A whole glass), I let it dry in diffused sunlight and the water evaporated after 2 days or so and my laptop is now in perfect condition.

If not, put into brown sugar or in the fridge for few mins (not for hours, your phone will be frozen!) It will sucks the moisture and the little bits of water...
