The best way to fix a water damaged phone is to remove the battery and put both seperately in a bucket of uncooked rice, this for some reason pulls the moisture out of the device and the rice obsorbs it, do not use a hair dryer i have seen many phones that customers do that too end up malfunctioning worse than the water would have done to it, if the rice doesnt work then you will need a new device. Hoped this helped!

Most phones the security code is the last four digits of your cell
phone number. If that's not it, try dialing *288 and pressing 1 when
promted. This will reset your phone and then the security code should
be the last four digits of the phone number. This is at least the case
with MOST cell phones. If not, bring it to the nearest store location
of your phone provider and they can reset it

Remove the battery and let the unit sit for a day or two. It takes a lot longer to dry out than it seems. If it doesn't work after that amount of time, the water probably did permanent damage. The cell company's regular warranty covers defects, but their premium insurance should cover even water damage. If they don't cover it at all, the repair cost probably isn't worth it if you can get a deal on a new phone. Definitely worth a shot to call or stop in your cell company's physical store and chat them up.
If it's still operable, then type in *#06# as you type numbers when dialing, this will automatically show you the IMEI number of your handset. Or you can find the IMEI number inside the battery compartment. Turn off the phone, open the battery cover, remove the battery and look inside the compartment, you'll see the Number with the Phone Model. The IMEI number should be 15 digits.

there could be moisture/ sweat logged inside the keypad. open the phone carefully , be careful not to damage the phone connections, open the pad side and use a air heater to warm up , this will clear the pad contacts.
