    Here's the low-down:

    2G took a damn swim. My fault. Case and point.


    Everything works fine, my computer even recognizes it and I retained my apps, music and vids.


    Bad news is: Yep. Damn touch screen is non-responsive. And the litmus paper is half-pink.

    I turned it off ASAP and placed it in some dry rice for 2 days. It turns on fine, but touch screen still won't respond. It will charge.

    What do you think I should try? Paper and super glue? White out? Bleach? I've heard of many solutions, but no evidence to support these solutions.

    That is fraud. Fraud is illegal.

    Put it in rice. Guys, seriously. Never turn on your electronics after any water gets in. They will work for a couple of days, but will most likely crap out on you after a while.

    It's probably already been damaged enough, but you can try it. Put it in a bowl of uncooked rice for a couple of days.
