When you experience water damage, the first thing you should do is obviously get it out of the water as quickly as possible. Next, make sure you don’t try and switch your phone on, as this can cause it to short circuit. Then comes the most important step, remove the battery. This is a crucial step in saving your phone, as we all know, electricity and water do not mix.
Once removing your battery take out your SIM card. Most of your valuable contacts should be stored on your SIM. For many people, this could be more worth saving than the phone itself. SIM cards survive water damage well. Lastly, cut power to you phone. Many circuits inside the phone will survive immersion in water, provided they are not attached to a power source when wet.

Water causes damage in mobile phones, mostly owing to the salts contained within it. These salts are corrosive and will eventually damage your phone if not cleaned correctly. Drying out your phone is not enough to fix it. This is just a short term fix as the corrosive residue remaining will eventually damage your mobile phone.
Most phones will have a colour change indicator and once water has entered the phone this will change colour and normally invalidate the manufacturers warranty.
