My phone fell in the water and my screen went blank, what can I do?
Open the back of it up, like how you would get to the battery, and put it in rice apparently. Never did it myself, but rice absorbs water so it might help, but I would google that before you actually do it...
Other than that, if you have insurance on it, get a new one. Look around locally first to see if there are any electronic repair shops first. The deductible you will have to pay for a new phone from the insurance company might be more or less than what a local shop will charge to fix it. My friend completely shattered his front screen and got it fixed for around 200 or so bucks within 3 days.
soak it in dry rice not cooked for a few hours or more this worked for me

I've been getting a blank screen when I hit "edit" to update Hubs for about an hour now. Might it be a glitch, or is it me? Thanks!

When I click on the upper left hubpages logo it is just going to a blank screen. When I reload, it will eventually get the feed but it is taking a looooong time. I am on Max OSX Lion Safari 6.0.
