I was at swiming pool today and i was recording few video under the water (around 1 meter deep) for no more than 5 minutes,then i left phone i bag outside of water and after few hours when i was about to go home,i couldnt unlock my phone.I restarted it and it's like touchscreen not responding at all.Can take screenshot with combo buttons,can recieve calls,can take pictures with hardware camera button but cant do nothing with screen.I don't have warranty so i guess phone is gone to hell?

Or could be not. Try switching off and drying out the phone for couple of hours. Do not blow hair dryer on it though. If it still doesn't come up, you might have a dead "Digitizer".

Although labelled as waterproof, if you read the small print, it says in fresh water only, in a swimming pool it has chlorine in it, so therefore not classed as fresh water which means you shouldn't use the phone there. Stupid I know, but this could be your issue. I ran my phone under a running tap for 20 seconds and after that the speaker was distorted and the touchscreen was not working right. After leaving it to dry for a short time, I turned it back on and it worked fine, I wouldn't do it again, I don't trust it!

Are any of the water ingression indicators (inside the flaps) red? Are there any cracks in the screen?
