Leave it in rice overnight, if it's still the same. You're screwed.

I would avoid using it if it had water in it. I'd just let it soak in rice.

minimum 8 hours in rice is what i (and all of my friends who have done that same) do. which is basically the amount of time youre sleeping.

No, best to turn it off to save any further damage. I'm not an expert, maybe google it?

Leave it in over night or 2 days/nights, but make sure you try to close the headphone jack and charger port so the rice doesn't get stuck inside. I made that mistake.
