does your phone still work after being submerged?? i did the same and it was toast...
the screen is layered...glasss, lcd, and they are not meant to come apart. The phone needs to be left out, taken apart as far as you can get to air out. Leave it for a day or so, and put together. Hope this helps
your phone may be dead. It depends on how far into the phone the water got. How long was it submersed? If you are comfortable with taking it apart, that would help to dry it out. or put it somewhere warm so the water will evaporate. you don't want to put the battery in untill the phone has dried out. also the battery may be damaged. it all depends on how long it was under water. it takes a minute for it to seep into the phone.
I recently had the same problem. You can buy the glass by itself (which you already know), but then you would have to chisel away all of the glass from the digitizer which is really risky, difficult, and may ruin the digitizer in the end. If your dropped your iPhone 3G and the glass cracked, you will need to purchase a new glass display AND digitizer. They will come together as the digitizer will already be glued to the glass display. This will cost you about $70 before shipping. If you are doing the repair yourself, you may want to consider getting a pry tool to help you take it apart (about $4). There are some youtube videos by PDA parts that show you how to take apart the phone. I ended up getting my glass display and digitizer from Mission Repair, as it comes with the adhesive strips you will need to afix the display to the frame. I got my pry tool from PDA Parts. Due to the lack of information out there about what to do when the glass on your iPhone 3g cracks, I ended up making a website to help people out. Soon I will have a video tutorial and as well as written instructions with pictures on how to replace the glass and digitizer yourself. The site is http://3gcrackedglass.com Good luck with the repair!
