Right,

For sale is my galaxy s3......long story short, i went swimming and left it in my pocket.

Tried the old rice trick and also a few other things.....it boots up and i've got it to my main screen but the touch screen isn't working and neither is the buttons at the bottom which light up. It still vibrates. I have factory reset from using the buttons on the phone to get the menu up.

The actual condition of the phone itself is generally OK, there are a few scratches on the screen and marks round the edges etc, its never had a case and has been bumped a couple of times but was generally fully working order before the swimming incident.

As you will see from the pics, it still loads to samsung start screen, the volume buttons work, the power buttons work and the screen rotation still works, its just the touch screen. The screen itself is also a bit tentative at times, it will go bright and dim.

It is bought as seen, it could be a really easy fix for someone knowing what they are doing but i can't guarantee that.

The back cover also has a number of letters missing from the samsung bit at the back but thats probably the least of the problems :)

***UPDATE***

Phone does now not switch on at all even on battery or when charger plugged in

***update again***

Phone is working, battery life is really low so a new battery needed but touchscreen is working now and have got the phone onto main screens using touchscreen, just the 2 buttons at the bottom don't light up to work as previously mentioned.

you will get £0 from Cex. This phone is dead. Motherboard is gone, LCD is probably gone, jack/usb port probably gone too... It won't work anymore *personal experience with galaxy S2*. If you want to try, open it up and use some deodorant in a toothbrush and clean all connectors/connections and try again (gold bits).

I checked on the mazuma site and they take phones that are dead anyway so if nobody takes it from here will just sell it to them.

too much effort for me to take it apart and mess about to be honest. thanks though

I'll take it off you for 30 including delivery

That won't benefit me because I'd get £30 from mazuma all in I don't wanna pay for postage

Just to note that it's actually working now everything is working including the touchscreen just not the two buttons at the bottom so I think I'm going to pull it from here and sell it elsewhere for a bit more
