    It should be safe, but to make sure I would bury it in rice for a while. Did you do that with the phone as well? I've heard people not needing a replacement after water damage because they just pull the battery and put in rice immediately!
    There was another thread I saw not to long ago almost asking the same thing, I'd search around for it.

    I dropped my DX in the pool and immediately submerged it in ethyl alcohol then in a bag of rice for 2 days. The alcohol displaces all the water and it works pretty well. The phone was perfect after that.
