    Regular or Decaff ?

    Water and electronics rarely mix well together as well as voiding your warranty the phone may be unusable.
    But thats not what you want to hear.
    First is the phone now completely dry ?
    (it really needs to stand vertically in a warm dry place for at least 2 days)

    Second if it is then try a hard reset.
    To perform a Hard Reset, press and hold the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons on your iPhone simultaneously for 5 to 10 seconds. After a few seconds the Slide to Power Off notice will appear, ignore this and keep holding down both buttons. In another few seconds the device should abruptly turn off, followed by the Apple logo and a reboot. Now release the buttons. If your iPhone remains powered off, wait about 15 seconds then boot the phone by pressing the Sleep/Wake button.
    Try to connect itunes again.
