Your cell phone needs to be repaired by a Samsung cell phone repairer. The touch screen may need to be replaced.

Phone in water

This has worked for me before. I once mistakenly left my portable on the deck face up over night and it rained ( a lot)
Do NOT use hair dryer or warm air to dry it.
Remove battery and dry
Shake phone gently to get most of water out..
Dry phone as much as you can with absorbent material.
Even use a QTip in the battery compartment.
If you have any of those silica packages around from new shoes or electronics (those sandy white packages that say do not eat) wrap them around phone with elastics. These are desiccants and will absorb moisture.
Wrap phone in single layer dry absorbent material to keep dust out , secure with elastics
Put layer of rice in plastic container that is say at least 6 times bigger than phone - (doesn't have to seal perfectly) and put phone on top of rice.
Cover phone ie bury it in rice. An inch or two of rice around phone.
Put lid on
Put container with phone and rice in refrigerator. Cold air is much less humid than warm. If you have humidity control on frig turn to minimum humidity.
Leave for 2 days - longer is better.
Charge battery.
After taking out of frig let it warm up for a while so it doesn't feel cold.
Insert battery.
(Optional) Say prayer to whatever deity you choose
Hold breath
Turn on phone
Hopefully celebrate

Samsung Galaxy S Stratosphere SCH-I405 Screen Issue

the flexes probably had been damaged by now, stratosphere is not that tough when it comes to water, unlike galaxy s3, you need a technician now for your phone to work, or better yet, look for the nearest samsung service center and bring your phone there.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace and until now its been great, however i was playing on this game (which the phone said was legit and fine and was called pipes or something) and then the screen started shaking...

If you have a waranty take it back to the store so they can restore the software. If you don't have a valid waranty, you can try to install an android custom rom or the Galaxy Ace one, if you can find it, yourself.

Water damage to pba on my samsung galaxy ace

If there is still water in the phone, get a bowl and put some dry rice in it then the phone then cover the phone with rice and make sure it is completely covered. The rice will pull the water out of your phone. Leave it in as long as you can, preferably over night. You could also put your phone and the rice in a zip lock bag. It's more portable.

Wet Phone - White Screen

take the phone to a service centre who will attempt to do what we call an ionic bath. this is a bath of electricity and pure alcohol.
they should then use i fibre glass pencil to clean trhe contacts properly. you may also need a replacement screen depending upon how badly the water damage is.
