Though it is painfully embarrassing for me to admit it, my beloved iPhone 4S met it's watery demise in the toilet yesterday. I immediately put it in a tupperware of rice, as is custom. However, I could not shut it completely down as you're supposed to because my touchscreen wouldn't work! The screen would light up perfectly fine, and Siri pops up when I hold down the button. From what I can discern, everything else works as it should. As I said, Siri pops up, and the phone can be rebooted without a problem. It vibrates. It's still keeping track of time and connected to the internet. I was even able to restore it to factory and nearly restore my backed-up files (I'm currently sitting here, staring at the screen, with a message asking me to verify my iCloud password. Unfortunately, I can't, because the touchscreen doesn't work! Everything else about the process went just fine, all my apps are syncing back nicely). However, there have been brief periods where the screen acts as normal. This usually occurs after a hard reboot. It's only happened twice, and for very short periods of time. I'm not 100% certain, but it looks like, during those brief periods, the phone worked up until I pressed the lock button. As I said before, I restored my phone, wishing naively that this was a software problem and it would fix itself. I don't think this is the case now. This is, I'm thinking, a hardware problem, but I don't think I really have enough experience (Re: Zero) to properly diagnose this. If anyone can help me out with this problem it would be much appreciated; I didn't realize how much I relied on my phone until this happened! Also of note: for some reason, the flash on the camera has been on since the incident and won't turn off.
