    Your only hope is disassembling the phone and laying it out to dry in a safe place. Your warranty is already shot and the only other option is just buying a new one, so you have nothing to lose that you haven't already lost .

    If you drop a phone in water and you want any chance of complete recovery, it must be disassembled, disconnected from power, and flushed of any corrosive chemicals and acids ASAP (before it dries).

    The LCD assembly should be disconnected and flushed in distilled water, but not left to soak.
    Circuit board should be disconnected and battery desoldered, then flushed in distilled water and left to soak in isopropyl alcohol for about a day, then left to dry for about 3-days.

    If left to dry by itself, it's likely corrosion and/or short circuits will occur from from alkalines in the liquid causing an electrolytic reaction with the live circuitry. I have repaired phones in this condition before, but they are never 100% as there is always some unidentifiable SMD component whose tinned solder pads deteriorated too badly to be repaired.
