uteq, I understand trying the rice as the first option, but it needs to be opened and cleaned on the inside. Whether or not the motherboard is damaged, you won't know until you clean it good, replace the screen and possibly the volume cable. Even then, there may be other problems that surface later down the road. The motherboard is the brain. If it is damaged, you could replace it, and yes, if you didn't back it up to your computer or the cloud, you will loose everything. If your going to replace the motherboard, I would purchase another iPhone locally and start fresh. Either a new motherboard or a new phone all together, you will have lost everything. The good thing with starting with a new phone, you don't have a water-damaged phone.
