So, on Monday (22/04/08) I went to get my Motorola Z3 from my bag and discovered that my water bottle had leaked, making my phone wet. I took the battery and sim card out of the phone straight away and left my phone to dry overnight. The next morning the keypad worked and I could make and receive calls. On the Wednesday, to my delight, I realised I could see the screen faintly if it was under bright light. Again, everything works. However, since Wednesday, nothing has changed. The screen is still faint and I'm a bit stuck as to what to do next. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!

all, do not turn it on. this would make more damage. Take out the battery, and completely dry the phone
before trying to use again. Did you dry
the phone completely? If not here is the procedure to take out all moisture
trapped in the phone: Dry the phone, battery, any accessory, etc. with
cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place
a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in
the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice
with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the
phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the
bag open) at least 24 hrs.
I figured it out. I went to tons of websites before I figured it out. you need to order a new flex cable for your phone (only cost about $8 from the website I got it at, which is a lot better than paying $50 or more for a new phone) make sure it's the one that goes to your phone. Once you get it you can install it yourself, just be careful and make sure you pay attention to where it all goes, it shouldn't be too hard. I haven't gotten mine yet but I'm already positive it's going to work, tons of other people have this problem and fixed it this way.
Unfortunately you phone has water damage, and your warrenty does not cover that. For your information, either behind the battery, or within the casing, there is a white dot, and when the white dot turns red the service provider knows that your phone has been in contact with water.
Your two options are to buy a new phone, or to wait it out and hopefully your phone will air dry and everything will work ok.
