Turn it off immediately, place in a large, dark plastic bag filled with uncooked rice, seal it up and put it in a warm place (like under a lamp) for a few days to a week without turning it on.

Unfortunately, with the sugar content of juice, you may be out of luck even if you can get all the moisture out with this method.

How much did it get? White screen is not a good sign...

I would follow what Dave recommended, but I am afraid the phone is shot. Water is one thing but sugar is entirely another.
Sorry to hear this. Might be best to think about the new phone coming out in a few months.

Throw it on the ground really hard & see what is inside it. Then buy a new one.

Have the sensors inside the headphone jack or inside the dock connector turned a color other than white?

Hmmmm if it were me doing this I seriously would be stupid enough to drop it in water intentionally to take out the sugar and pray it works xD Lol. But yah orange juice or w/e juice fell on it is acidy, it's the iPhone's worst fear.
