This is the youtube video showing you how to get to the battery   and do what they do to get to the battery and you will need a very very very small philips screwdriver. I used a teckdeck screwdriver. yea its that small. the screws are located next to the plug where you connect everything to it.

How do I turn off voice control and Siri on my iphone? they are both being activated anytime I touch the home button , abnormally

their should be a button on your screen when you talk that shows the Speakerphone. I don't know to much about the I-phone but you should be able to just click on the speakerphone and turn it off, also look to see if their is a menu that comes up when the Speakerphone is active, you might be able to click on it to turn off this feature

Water under the touch screen

you can either put your phone in rice, or take your battery out of your phone and wrap it in a towel so it wont melt, and put it in the oven so the water evaporates.

E71 nokia fell in signal..all ok otherwise

If your (bad) luck is holding, low-level circuits have been damaged by current from elsewhere, especially if trying to connect since this uses circuits capable of much higher power than the low-level ICs were intended to deal with. 
Since it isn't working anyhow, try this:
Add a drop (not more) of dish detergent to a couple of quarts of warm distilled water - no product that has anything added to the water. Remove the battery from your phone, dunk it into the solution and swirl it a bit to ensure penetration of the solution.
Rinse it in distilled water only, shake out whatever you can without slamming against anything. Allow it to dry (battery compartment open) in any warm place such as a sunny railing, window sill, etc. for at least two days. 
I have used this method successfully on a number of electronic items with good success.  The most extreme incident was a word processor I serviced (many moons ago) belonging to an author who had weeks of work stored in the unit when his tom-cat decided it was a good place to urinate.
Good luck-

Non responsive touch screen on iphone

If a hard reset (press menu and center button together for 5 sec) and software restore doesn't cure it , you have a broken digitizer of your iPhone screen assembly. There is an iphone repair guide website that shows you how to do the replacement yourself and a third party iphone repair company that can do it for you.
