    After removing the four screws, the back is held by more than sticky foam (I did not see any foam). There are two plastic clips in the front which must be pryed towards the top of the phone (I broke one, unknowlingly). Worse, there is SOMETHING at the bottom of the back which will not yield. If I find out how to complete removal of the back, I will let you know. Any suggestions?

Start by removing the battery and the four small Phillips-head screws around the battery. Next, remove the plate on the back of the phone, below the battery panel. The panel is stuck in place with sticky foam and might be hard to peel off. Then remove the two small phillips-head screws. Next use a tiny (glass repair kit) flat-head screwdriver to pry the two halves of the base apart at the seam.

This is where it gets tricky. Gently take each piece off one-by-one. But to separate the screen you have to slide it half way and hold it in place while you unplug the ribbon cable from the circuit board in the base of the phone. Then disconnect the arm from the slider and slide the phone open to remove the two screws behind the silver stickers on either side of the camera "shutter". Now pry the slider housing apart as with the base.

My mobile is damage by water how can i solve this problem

Get the Phone Out of the water. Do NOT power it on.
This may sound too obvious a step but a few extra seconds that your phone spends in water can reduce whatever chances you had of saving your phone.
If however your phone has spent more than a few minutes in water try removing the battery when the whole gadget is under water itself .
Powering up the phone when it is wet causes the maximum damage to your phone.

2 Remove the battery and SIM card
Water + battery is a bad combination for your phone. Remove the battery as soon as possible. SIM card too must be removed immediately as water on SIM cards may erase all your contacts stored in the SIM.
3 Dry the phone as much as possible
Try and pat dry the phone, the battery and the SIM card. Using a paper towel is advisable for removing water quickly.
4 Metciulously Disassemble the phone completely
This is one of the most important steps on your phone's path to recovery. If possible take your phone to a local mobile phone servicing shop and ask him/her top disassemble the phone completely for you. Make sure the circuits are not powered up by the shopkeeper.
If you are worried that disassembling the phone will make your warranty/guarantee void you need to know that phones come with Water Damage indicators which change colors with the slightest hint of water. No phone warranty covers water damage.
5 Dry all the phone components with a dessicant
After disassembling the phone immerse each component in a bowl of uncooked rice / silica gel packs. These dessicants absorb water effectively and draw out water from all nooks and corners of your phone. Heating / Vaporising the water is a bad idea cause that would leave salts on your phone's circuitry and cause corrosion and eventual death of your phone. Hence drying with uncooked rice/silica gels where water is removed by absorption is the best option. Leave it there for a couple of days.
6 Show patience and let every component lie under a table lamp for a couple of days
Now your phone is almost on its way to complete recovery provided you show Adequate patience. You may keep the bowl of rice under a table lamp for this duration . Changing the rice /silica gels though not a mandatory step, can be pretty effective and useful.
7 Assemble , Pray and Switch on!

Drop phone in water cant used it nokia N66

You can try disassembling the phone to the best of your ability, the more you can take apart the better, seperate all pieces and place completely submerged in uncooked rice for 2 days. Occasionally moving the pieces around. Sometimes if your lucky the rice will pull all the water out and barring no circuit damage from the water, you might have a working phone.

When phone is open can't see screen, can't access missed calls or texts. can make calls

If the screen is completely blank and it is not visibly damaged or cracked than you probably need a new ribbon cable, which is the cable that connects the two halves of the phone. They are not expensive and can be ordered on eBay, and they come with the tools required to disassemble the phone and replace the cable.
