Then you need to dis-assemble the rest of the phone and clean ''all the affected parts'' using '''Isopropyl Alcohol 90%+''' (available from most pharmacies) to remove all traces of corrosion and water. Do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is <70% IPA, can contain scents and is not as effective. If you do check the label to verify the amount

You may have to replace the battery as it is very hard to recover a battery from water damage.
 
As always with electronics, especially surface mounted PCBs be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board.
 
Hopefully after you have done all this the phone ''might'' possibly work correctly again.
