Hi. I dropped my iphone 4 down the toilet about 5 days ago. I have read many websites and i've kept phone sealed in a bag of dried rice since. I have tried to start it up now by re-setting whole phone but when it goes to connect to 'itunes' it says:

There is a problem with your iPhone.

The iPhone you connected may be damaged and cannot be activated for service. We recommend you visit your nearest Apple Store for more information.

Can anyone help or advise me how or if i can get my phone back up and running? It is not covered under warranty as i bought it second hand. Please help !!

iPhone 4
