    You will need to take it a part to do that.

    There's a how to video. Do this at your own risk. The hardest part is removing the Bottom peice, be carefull not to break it. It does take quite a bit of force though. You will also need a T6 Torx screwdriver. You may want to grab some canned air also just to clean while you're in there.

    Good luck

    when i drop my phone in the water i put my phone near a heater, but not right directly at it... it might take sometime for the water to dry up...

    I would have been going crazy if I dropped my pearl in the water! In my opinion by taking it straight to a dryer... is what works.

    B4 you take it apart you might try and take out the battery and place the phone it in the sun - I did that with an old Sanyo my son took swimmng and after 2 or 3 days the moisture was gone completely.
