    Welcome to Android Central! What phone do you have? Are you saying you know some water got inside the phone? It only takes a little bit of moisture to mess things up. I would power down the phone, remove the battery (if possible), and put both in separate ziploc bags full of uncooked rice. Seal the bags, and let them sit overnight. Then try using the phone again the next morning.

    If you can't swipe to unlock, that probably means the touch screen doesn't work anymore. I would do what B. Diddy suggested and hope it works.

    The water damage indicator isn't red/pink because that wasn't touched by water. Maybe if your phone isn't fixed by getting dried out, you might be able to get a replacement under warranty since they can't say it was water damage..
