    Most likely the water damage its not only to the lcd but could be to other components of the phone also.
    Bring it to Apple for inspection.
    You got Applecare plus?

    The back of the lcd needs to be cleaned and the backlight needs to be replaced. Although most third party repair companies won't clean the lcd and replace the backlight they will give you a new screen instead.

    Replace it.

    When a phone gets wet, one of two things will happen:
    1. It fails immediately.
    2. It fails shortly down the road.

    Seems like you only have the standard warranty and not the Apple care +. If you had apple care + you'd only pay $79.00 for a replacement.

    As others have said, take it to the Genius, have them assess the phone, if only the front panel needs replaced, it will probably cost around $109. IF they find that the water got to other components, then you will be looking at around $299 for a replacement.

    More than likely, they will replace the whole unit instead.

    To be fair, number 2 might not happen for a long time (or ever), with it basically being no different than if the phone didn't get wet. Not to say that's the likely scenario or anything like that, but it doesn't seem to be all that of an unlikely one either.

    If it's normal and nothing is wrong with it, why do you need to take it in to a Genius?

    What are we looking at / for?

    In my experience, it's true. The issue isn't the water, per se. It's getting the internals wet while power is applied to the device. Depending on how it got wet - there's a big difference between being splashed and submerged, for example - the odds are slim that you can get the power off before some internal short circuiting occurs.

    Whole unit replacement for liquid damage. Stop using commas like that.

    You're definitely going to need to do an out of warranty swap.

    However, the replacement phone will have a 90 day warranty, so it'll go beyond Sept 18.

    Yes, turn it off and leave it in rice for a few days.
    Works well sometimes, other times it cannot save the device but worth a try.

    If the device had power applied to it while it was wet, it's more than likely salvageable. Rice is way too little, why to late.

    Maybe you can find a way to beat AT&T out of replacement device. SMFH

    Putting it in something before putting it in rice pretty much negates any benefits of putting it in rice.
