Question about Samsung Galaxy S GTI9000 Smartphone
My phone fell in the "clean" toilet bowl. I took everything out and towel dried the phone. Put back in the battery and turned it on. Turned on fine but started to stick within 30 seconds. Took out everything again and dried it some more put back in the battery and phone froze again but then screen disappered and turned green. I know have it in a container of rice.
If it's at the point where the screen isn't working properly, it's dead. If you have some kind of extended warranty, it may cover it, but there's no real way to bring it back from being water damaged, unfortunately.

I'm very sorry to say your phone is not going to work again. It has clearly been damaged from sitting 4 ft under water for over an hour.
The phone was on, you dropped it and the water found its way inside and shorted it out. It's a miracle that it is able to turn on at all.
The rice method does work if your phone got splashed with water or fell in water and was taken out promptly.
Sorry about your misfortune, you will need to replace your phone. Thank you for trying Fixya!

any water or liquid exposure on the phone will damage it's mother board. It needs to be fixed and needs a replacement on other parts on it, there is no assurance that it can still be fixed.

If it's a new phone, take it to the place that you purchased from and have them check it out. Make sure you take your box, charger, and paperwork and receipts with you. Good Luck.
