I FELL INSIDE WATER [the beach] WITH MY TECNO M3 IN MY POCKET?

Please, am so confused right now. I fell inside the water with my phone in my breast pocket and I ignored it since it didn't really touch the phone. When I got home, I found out it was WET and so I removed everything and dried it in the sun for two days, I turned it on and luckily it worked. BUT THE PROBLEM IS-IT IS NOT RESPONDING TO TOUCH!!! PLEASE HELP,AM SO WORRIED

Remove the batteries and rinse with clean water, then rinse with denatured alcohol and allow the alcohol to evaporate.

Or throw it in a bag of Rice >.>

2 day in the sun == bag of rice.

Could also be, the hot sun damaged the gorilla glass touch sensory screen..

Let's hope not; Least it is Replaceable !

Do the other functions on your phone work, like Volume or the home key?

Can you still Receive a call and answer it?

only the power,volume up nd volume down button are working....i cant recieve calls cos i have tu swipe the screen

Yeah try replacing the screen. Check your local mall for a few quotes.

Could also be that there is still water under the screen that is causing the Capacitive Touch Screen to become Basically Grounded.

There are some great vids on how to take the screen apart.
