    Default Galaxy S3: I need help!!

    Hi. So... My phone was wet and I dried it off. It worked find but the speakers didn't work. Just in case, I shut it off and then took out the battery. While I was still turning it back on, I for some strange and very stupid reason made the battery fall out. I put it back in and frantically waited for it to turn on. What I got was a thing that had the Adroid green alien in the middle with the words "Downloading... Do not turn off target!!" In the top left-hand corner, in very small print it says:
    FACTORY MODE
    PRODUCT NAME: SGH-T999V
    CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD:No
    CURRENT BINARY: SamsungOfficial
    SYSTEM STATUS: Official
    QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
    Warranty Bit: 0
    BOOTLAODER RP SWREV: 1

    Please...If you know how to fix it.... please send me a message.

    Just pull the battery, wait a minute, then put it back in and power up. You're not actually downloading anything. But if it's still wet, leave the battery out until it's thoroughly dry. The best thing to do with a wet phone is to take the battery out and seal the phone in a zip lock with uncooked rice for at least 24 hours.

    Yeah! I wouldn't even eat Uncle Ben's, much less put my phone in it!
