I am afraid you now have a pocket full of junk. For reasons that are
not clear to me, cell phones are extremely hydrophobic, and generally
are destroyed by even minimal amounts of water. I once dropped my phone
into a small puddle of water on the floor, not even 1 mm deep, and the
phone instantly failed.
What is really strange is that there should be no problem coating the
electronics with a protective coating, making sealed keyboards, and
making the case more water resistant. This really is an example of cost
cutting to the extreme in the manufacturing, I think. After my
experience, I am even very careful in the rain, as even one drop of
water is enough to destroy a phone.
