Unfortunately you dropped your phone in water what should you do use a hair dryer,use the bag of rice,give it some heat and you are good to go.Turned on your phone but wait it won't start what did i do.
None of these method will work but thanks to @sharonvak Tech-obsessed host of cnet for unveiling the secret of saving your wet phone incase you got lucky and read it before the mishap.So what should you if it happens.Here's the tip from her

Step 1

Without wasting time, turn off your phone. Do this within seconds of the accident, even before you dry it off with your t-shirt. The main point is to cut the power before any water has a chance to hit the circuitry and short circuit it.

Step 2

 Dry the outside of the phone with a lint-free towel, paying close attention to any ports, speakers, and microphones. Disassemble any parts -- like the SIM card and battery -- and dry them, too.

Step 3

 Place the device and parts in a zip-top storage bag, along with a handful of silica gel packets. These are desiccants often found in new products (like shoes and bags), along with some grocery items (like beef jerky). They're designed to be very efficient at absorbing moisture.

Collect them as you find them for emergencies like these. Or, you can order silica gel packets online.

Step 4

Wait 72 hours. This is probably the hardest part, but rest assured that you'll be OK, even if you haven't checked Instagram in three days.

Step 5

 Power your phone on. Three days have passed, giving the desiccants ample time to absorb the moisture. If you did everything right, your phone should be back in business.

A few important notes

Here's the deal: Much of this method relies on chance and a little luck. The most important part is that you rescued your phone quickly, and that it was powered off before any liquid hit the circuit boards.
