We've done the whole phone in the toilet thing, and the phone into the puddle thing, and even the spilt cocktail on the phone gag. That little red water indicator on the inside let's you know for certain, that despite the promises from your friends that letting it sit over night, or submerging it in rice will bring it back to life, your phone is over. Water is the enemy of the cellular phone as sure sure as the pile is the nemesis to the hole, and up until now, there has been no solution to this aside from sealing your mobile in a ziploc. The evil geniuses at Liquipel have created a coating that bonds to your phone at the molecular level (the coating is thinner than a human hair) and essentially makes your phone water proof, both on the outside and the inside. It is completely un-noticeable, does nothing to impede the performance or tactile feel of the device, and is purported to last the lifetime of the device...which with the speed that they pump out new and improved smart phones, should be four weeks. Of course...this is only a stop gap until they can perfect the force field. You can learn more here.
