Hi Guys,

A month or so ago my mom dropped her S3 into the toilet. I told her to put it in rice ASAP and I believe a day or so later she did (but perhaps later that night). When I turn the phone on, the blue SAMSUNG (or maybe it says Galaxy) logo comes on and shows up completely fine, but nothing else after that works.

The lights around the phone work as well, including when I hit the menu and back buttons on the bottom part of the phone. It vibrates properly when it should and I also get sound, no problem.

I've tried connecting the phone to my computer to salvage pictures and data but it doesn't recognize the device for some reason.

Is the phone completely toast or is there a way for me to fix it? It was in very good condition before this and had only been used for a year.

Thanks a lot for the help. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
