Glide phones touch screen doesnt work. It got wet

I was hiking up to the falls and i was sitting down and a bee came. Well, i had my phone on my lap on my jacket, when the bee got close i flung my jacket, and my phone went flying. I ran down to go get it. It took me about 2 mintus to get down there, i have a case on my glide phone and the back stayed on but the front went flying, When i got down there it was a little wet. The battery had a little pink on it. The touch screen won't work now. The keybored and everything else works. But should i wait for a while and see if it works or should i go to verizon right away and get a new one? Is there anyway i can fix my touch screen? Its a Glide phone

Well it depends on the type of screen you have in the phone. Some have edges that can split open and lose the fluid that projects the picture so your best bet is to just replace the phones screen, if every thing else works fine

SOURCE: After water damage my touch screen for my quickfire wont work!

Put it in a ziplock bag of uncooked rice for several weeks. And make sure the battery is out of it. So put in the battery and phone but they should be apart.

SOURCE: LG VU screen doesn't work after water damage

I was cleaning the pool when my LG Vu took a dive. I fished it out in about 2 minutes...should have jumped in and it would have been in only seconds.....anyway. Dried it off with my shirt and pushed the lock button to unlock and see the screen...it was on but said Emergency Download. I took the battery out and dried it off also took out the SIM card and memory card. Shook the water out; some drips here and there, fortunately it wasn't water-logged. I let it sit for about an hour and got on the internet to find a remedy. I took advice to put back the memory and SIM cards and plug in to charger....the screen directed me to put in the battery....so far so good. The screen said the battery was charging. I waited patiently for that to finish. When complete, unhooked the charger and hit the unlock button again....what do you know the screen came up! I was estatic! But....the touch screen would not work!! Back on the internet for advice. Decided to do the hair dryer trick. I set the dryer on cool setting and let it blow on the screen. I also opened up the chargers portal and let air blow in there. I took the cover off the back to the battery and let it blow on there....being very careful not to let the battery fall out and not let the phone get hot. I did this for about 30 minutes. There was some fogging of the screen so I focused more on drying the screen with the dryer. The fog cleared up and when I touched the touch screen the top of the screen started working first...bottom still not responding...a little more of the dryer and all worked!!! Screen fogged again in about 20 minutes...dryed it again with dryer and it has been dry ever since. I have gone to every application, etc. on my phone and everything works just like it did before it took a dip! Hope this helps some of you! Key is patience, and some drying with TLC! Best of Luck!

SOURCE: My phone got wet now it charges, screen works but wont turn on.

Water internal to a cell phone is usually death to the electronics. You can try drying it out by putting it in a box of silica gel (obtainable at a craft store). You only need enough to surround the phone. Leave the phone in the silica gel for a day or two to see if the phone will function, otherwise I'm afraid a new phone is in order.

My phone was left on my bike and the sprinklers got it alittle wet but it turned on but the touch screen doesnt work the strip near the battery is white i dont know if thats right or not and it vibrates...


You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.

My daughter spilled juice on her cell phone, it can receive calls but she cant answer them because the touch screen will not work


You should never turn on any electronics that are wet.
  • Remove the battery
  • Place phone in a bag of rice
  • let it sit for 24/48 hours
  • Replace battery

Once it has dried out from the rice, you should be good to go, if you have not damaged it by powering it up while it was wet

I hope this helps

Which mobile is best for me?


The nokia 5800 is an awesome phone, but you are right in that it has a touch screen and touch screens can damage more easily than a regular phone. There are things that you can do to prevent damage to the touch screen such as a transparent protective film and a carrying case. If you use those two things your touch screen will very likely last for years unless you drop the phone. I do recommend this touch screen phone if you do not plan on taking it on hikes or treating it roughly. For city use this should be a pretty good phone.
