I recently experienced the classic phone-in-toilet situation. Luckily, it hasn't completely given out on me yet. The touch screen works like nothing happened, but the buttons do absolutely nothing. This leaves me with no way to activate the phone once it goes to sleep without receiving a text message, call, or plugging it in. Fortunately, I can plug an iTrip into the bottom which will wake it up. I've done my fair share of reading and I know that there isn't anything I can do about the buttons. I've also found out that it is possible to get a fairly reasonably priced replacement if I bring my phone to the store. My current situation obviously isn't ideal, but it will cut it while I save money. the one question I have left is about being able to return to the home screen. Is there any kind of app or setting that would allow me to use the touch screen to return home? At the moment, I am stuck in the SMS app (which will allow me to do the necessities - calling and texting) and cannot change apps without letting the battery die and opening a new one the next time I plug it in.
