First thing to do is to power it off, remove the battery, and leave it, maybe 24 hours or so, in a nice warm dry place to completely dry out. DO NOT power it back on while there could still be any moisture anywhere!

Put it in a bag or tub of rice it will suck out all the moisture.

Bag of rice
Airing cupboard (or warm, not hot place)
Make sure battery is out and battery cover is off
Leave it alone and forget about it for a few days

If there is ANY moisture visible after this don't try and turn it on, as you have seen the app error you've obviously tried, but everybody does smile

If you can, strip it, clean it, or take it to someone who can.

Most people will just chance it, but there could still be residue on the board.

The app error needs the software to be completely reloaded.

Use JL Commander, or similar to completely kill/wipe the phone, then after a restart use BlackBerry Desktop Manager to reload the software.

If you get stuck give me a shout.
