it fell in the toilet face down, was only in there for like 30 seconds. none of the stickers are damaged they're still white. when i took the phone out it didnt have much water init. i took the battery sim and memory card out over night and it still wont turn on. instead of a red light its turned blue and flashes. i tried charging it and plugging it into my laptop it wont charge either. the screen has got like white lines but if you touch or warm the screen they go. what do i do? its a brand new phone aswell im not on contract so i cant easily get it replaced.
do i just need to keep it warm?
any suggestions are welcome

Remove the battery and put it and the phone in a bowl of uncooked rice for 4-5 days. Don't take either one out before that time or you risk doing damage to them. Above all, don't try to power up the phone until the 4-5 days have passed. That's what kills the phone. It's not so much the water in it, it's the moisture getting trapped between the electrical contacts and frying the phone when you try to power it up before it's completely dry.
Let us know if that helps you.
