    It wasn't in there long. I reached in and pulled it out, immediately pried off the back and removed the battery. That was approximately 13 hours ago. Since then I've put the battery back in 3 times. The first time it booted up and I started to research proper water recovery procedures in Chrome before the touchscreen became unresponsive. On subsequent boots the phone starts up fine and I've even confirmed the speaker works, but the screen still will not respond. The touch menu and back buttons light up on contact.

    Any help?

    The LDIs on both the battery and inside the battery compartment are both blank.

    How much rice are we talking? I put a cup of rice in a baggie with the phone/battery and sealed it.

    Got it. It's so frustrating that the thing turns on and seemingly works fine...except for the whole touchscreen thing. Submerged in rice now. Back to my as yet unrooted D2 for now. Bleh.
