My lg chocolate 3 froze and i dont know what to

Switch off the phone. Take the battery off and wait for a few minutes. Then put the battery back and switch it on. If it still doesn't work, take off your memory card and switch your phone back on (without the memory card).

Faulty battery perhaps

It could be either with water damage, and if the phone is still wet inside it will overheat by plugging it in.

Get a bowl of rice, remove the battery and leave the back of the phone open. Put both battery and phone in bowl of rice and leave covered overnight. The rice will soak up any water in the phone or battery.

If this doesn't work the phone has permanent water damage and will need to be replaced.
