    I had a two and a half hour conversation last night that involved crying and sweating. On my phone.

    Now the touchscreen is nonresponsive. Luckily I have the trackbutton on the side...but I still would prefer a fully functioning phone. What should I do?

    I already wiped the screen of grease and left it without battery overnight. It is sometimes responsive but mostly not.

    I am concerned because after 2 hours and 30 minutes all actual wetness appeared to have dried, so I worry it is in the phone. But not a huge amount....so I don't know what to do!

    Samething happened to me after talking on the phone while it was drizzling outside. It started working again like 2 days later, but I had already called in and got a replacement phone because of my warranty.

    Best thing to do anytime your phone comes into contact with any form of liquid is to remove the battery asap and put the phone into a bag of rice for a day to dry it out. It doesn't always work, but in most cases it does.
