On boxing day, i went kayaking and i was capsied in a fresh water lake. I grabbed my BB out of the water and pulled it apart dried it down with a towel as best as i could at the time. Foolishly thinking all the water was all gone i tried turning it on (from this i believe i have short the curcuit out). After it didnt turn on i pulled it apart again and left it to dry with the screen facing up. After we got back i left it out and open to dry. I did after a while put it in a bag of rice to absorb the moisture and left it in there for 2 to 3 days and it still hasn't came back to life. I had also notice when drying it first at the lake, a red square on the battery (not sure but i beleive this means the phone has some water damaged and the battery may not work. I Have also to no svsil tried charging it over night but nothing happened and the phone was still cold. I am in Melbourne, Victoria in Australia is there thing i can do or do i cut my loses and get a phone???

A red square means there was contact with water. Thus you might have lost your warranty. On iPhones this was a huge problem because tropical warm weather can set off the sensor (as well as leaving it in your pocket).
At this point, I recommend bringing the phone to a local repair depot. Hoping for a free assessment.
I see your profile has the older 9900.... perhaps it's time for a Q10.
