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

When i was walking in the ocean at low tide i forgot i had my phone with me and i was walking through a puddle and it fell out of my pocket. I picked it up wasnt even in the water for 2 seconds. I immediately took out the battery and sim card and started drying all the water out with a shirt. I noticed the white spot in my phone turned pink so i ran inside and (found out after i did this that you arent supposed to) dried it with a hair dryer. Then i put it in a bowl of uncooked rice. I let it stay there over night and checked it this morning. This morning i checked it and it seemed like everything was working and i was so excited until i tried to press messaging (its a touch screen) . Should i let it sit in the rice for another day or another couple days? If there are any people really good with phones plz phone is brand new and I really like it!!

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.

I have an impact 7000 can I get new battery The phone started cuttin out dropping calls ATT store said battery indicator showed some water damage Waiting for IPhone in Sept so would just like a quick...

unfortunately replacing the battery wont solve the problem.
the battery is where the external water damage indicator is but its actually the phone that would be damaged, and even worse, water damage is almost never repairable at a close to reasonable cost.
Your best bet would be to look up a used phone on a local classified website and get something to tide you over til the new iphone.

Nonresponsive touch screen

Clay, it sounds like the digitizer might have went bad when it received water damage. Touch screens are usually 3 parts. The 1st part (the part you actually touch with your fingers) is the outer glass. The 2nd part is the actual LCD that brings you picture. The 3rd part is the digitizer which is plugged in with a small ribbon cable and allows the LCD to sense your touch. This problem is pretty common even without water damage. You can actually purchase a new digitizer on Ebay for between $10-12 with free shipping. Whether or not you decide to attempt the replacement yourself will depend on your background with this type of equipment. It isn't extremely hard but I only say that because this is my area of expertise. You most likely have several areas of expertise that would boggle my mind. If you are unsure at all about installing it yourself, contact someone in your area that you trust to do this. I hope this helps you! Don't forget to vote thumbs up if it does.

My screen went out and i want to know where to click

have you taken out the battery and put it back in? If this helps then quickly get the numbers on the sim card. If it does not work but the key pad works you may have to do a little repairing. It is usually the flex cable that gets ripped there fore making the screen not work, Check on google for the exact part then on ebay to purchase.
