You have told us the phone is dead.

I believe DEAD will be difficult to fix, even for the capable members of CR4.

According to Miracle Max, if it is completely dead the only thing to do is go through his pockets looking for loose change.

What type of water? If it is salt or chlorinated water, forget it it is dead. This stuff corrodes the delicate internal electrical parts like crazy.

If it was clean or fresh water then there MAY be a chance. Disassemble it as much as possible and put the parts in your hot water cupboard (or equivalent warm, low humidity environment) for a day or two to try and dry it out. If you are really, REALLY lucky the phone may start working again, if not then it is time to get a new phone.

The SIM card should be ok in either case, but if it was salt water the SIM card needs to be carefully wiped down as quickly as possible to prevent damage and loss of your saved phone numbers, etc.
