Hello,

My phone was on and it got a bit wet it wasn't submerged, I dried it off and turned it off, then I took the back off and the battery out. I left it to dry for a bit, I went online to find out what to do and it was mentioned that there is a small white dot on the back that will change colour if the phone is water logged. It looks white or an extremely pale pink. I put it in rice and then in with some silica gel packs, in a ziploc container because I don't have a bag. I saw this on a telus blog. Is there still hope for my phone.

Yes.  The white dots are used to deny warranty coverage, should the phone be damaged, they do not necessarily indicate a broken phone. 

 

My phone took a dive into a pool a few years ago. Still going strong!

I managed to fix my daughter's waterlogged phone with a similar method. Opened it up, took the battery out and dried up what I could with cotton swabs and small pieces of paper towels. Then I put all the pieces in a medium zip-lock with a big pack of silica gel that I keep in my DSLR lens bag. Put the bag on top of a my espresso machine which was warm at the time. The phone was fine the next day.
