Smartphone touch screen won't work after booting up

  1. My phone has a screen lock on it. So the phone boots up and reaches the screen lock part where I can go about unlocking it and doing whatever I will with my phone. however the screen wont respond to any touch. It is an Android and the phone is a Samsung intercept.

    also... :/ 3 days ago I dropped in it a puddle. I've been drying it out for few days under weak heat from a heat lamp but I tried it yesterday and I had the problem mentioned above ^. any suggestions, or am I screwed?

    Thanks,
    Sprinter

    I'm afraid you will have to get a new phone. Who is your wireless provider?

    No insurance either? I'm sorry, but it will be a new phone for you :oops:
