Dropped Galaxy s3 In Water & Now The Screen Doesn't Work When I Touch It(HELP!!)
I was in the pool when I dropped my phone in it. It was only submerged for about 2 seconds. I was at a friends and they didn't have white rice so i had to put it in brown rice-- all day. Then today I put the battery in it and it acting the same, everything works but when I touch the screen it doesn't do anything. It has now been in a air tight sealed bag full of white rice for about 3 hours... It still doesn't work.. PLEASE HELP!! I have college tomorrow and I need my phone....

Three hours is nothing. If you search the forums, you'll see recommendations are a minimum of 24 hours, with 48 hours preferable. The fact that you've powered the phone up multiple times doesn't bode well for it, however. Electronics, water and electricity don't go well together.
Take the battery out, leave it in rice for 2 days, and hope for the best. No matter how badly you want to see what's happening, do NOT put the battery back in until it's been sealed in rice for 48 hours.
The real answer, of course, is to not take your phone near the pool any more, much less in the pool.BROKE MY WRIST AND TYPING ONE-HANDED! Please forgive all typos.
PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
Give a person an answer, and you've solved one problem. Teach a person to search, and you have helped them solve problems forever.
