Everything works but the speakers. And I can't talk unless its in speaker, an the camera is all foggy. Is it ever going to work again!? How many people have dropped their phones in the water and they went back to normal?

Turn it off throw it in a bag of rice, there are usually phone repair stores that can assess and repair water damage.

Place your i phone in a bowl of dry white rice for 2-3 days and do not touch it! After the 3rd day it will function again.

First off you shouldn't have turned it on... Turn it off and put it in a bag off rice from 24 hours to 7 days....the rice will dry it out.  I dropped mine in the tub... Fell out of my hoodie pocket when I was helping my daughter get a bath.  Rice trick worked great

This. Take it all apart and put it in rice for 24-48 hours. My Dh ran his through the washing machine and after this, it still works fine.

if you don't dry it out, you may see the effects of the water later.

This turning it on to soon will mess it up more. It needs to dry. If there is still water in it and you turn it on it can damage it more.
