    Default Samsung Galaxy S3 - Touch Screen Not Responding

    I dropped my phone in the river. It was found within 10-15 minutes after being lost in the water. I immediately dried it off, pulled out the battery, SIM card, & the other card, and then put it all in a large ziplock with rice for 24 hours.

    The phone will turn on, looks perfect, blinks due to new messages, chirps for Facebook messages, but I can't get at any of it, because the touch screen isn't responding.

    Am I SOL? Is there any hope? I have a year left on my contract with Verizon and do NOT have a maintenance agreement.

    Thank you,

    Excuse me if the question sounds foolish but are you sure you got all the water out? Did you try a second rice treatment when you found touch sensitivity had gone? Or other method of drying?

    No. I will, if you think it could help. It's been out of the rice for approximately 6-8 hours. I'll put it back in...

    Still got that phone in that rice? Good. Maybe get some new rice. Give it every chance to work.
