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

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.

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?

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