Please Help Me Dry Out A Cellphone

My husband's work-issued cellphone just went through the washing machine. He is required to be reachable by cellphone 24 hours a day. Can we dry it out ourselves and make it work? Details inside.

It's an older model Nokia (at least 5 years old). I can't find any identifying numbers on it. There was condensation under the display screen/face plate and he managed to pop the entire front of the phone off (it separated neatly into two pieces). It's now sitting on the kitchen table. Should we direct a table fan toward it or just let it dry naturally? Is there anything else we need to do to try to get it dried out and working again? Any advice or personal experience (hopefully success stories) is welcome.
