Default Really cannot control my phone

So my phone got a little bit wet and it's basically freaking out. The home button thinks it's the camera button, the search button brings up the recently used apps screen, but the menu button and back button work as intended. To add to that, tapping a spot on the screen may or may not register that spot and instead treat it as if I pressed something else on the screen.

I did let my phone, battery, and back cover dry out for an hour or so, if that helps.

I'm at a loss for what I can do besides getting a replacement.

You need to remove the battery and let phone and battery dry out for a couple of days. Put them in a bag of rice.

Hopefully you didn't already screw it up by turning it on while still wet, but that's a definite possibility.

You can try to do whats called a soft reset as well. A soft reset is were you have the battery out and you hold the power button for about 5-10 sec. If that doesnt work take it to a Sprint store and see if they can do a factory reset
