Wet phone! Seems ok?

Just dropped my phone in the sink. Got wet but still working. I grabbed it quite quickly. Should I do anything? Should I use the rice trick to be on safe side?

Firstly, use rice (or silica gel, if you happen to have any) to dry the phone out. Then immediately back up all your data whilst your phone is still working. Don't be surprised if the phone randomly dies in the next few weeks/months as the impurities in the water corrode the tiny, extremely sensitive internal components.

Yep, matt is right. Don't get your hopes up because it works NOW - it will most probably develop more and more faults over time. Be prepared ;)

There is some great feedback about a RescueTec satchel which has been purpose built for the job. http://www.rescuetec.com i think is the URL.
