Based on your description, it sounds like the phone may indeed be water damaged. You should [guide|76050|open] it up and look at the water indicator stickers to see if they turned red. If they are red, then you will want to try to decontaminate the board: * Inspect the logic board, especially around the connectors and look for corrosion. * Inspect both sides of the board. Unfortunately, most of the board is covered in shields. That's usually where the damage is occurring. * Put your board in a container with >90% isopropyl alcohol and let it sit for a while. * Use a soft brush, like a toothbrush and lightly brush away any corrosion you see. * Rinse in alcohol and repeat. * Let it air dry for a day. * Re-assemble and hope for the best. A professional repair shop that does water damage repair may be able to recover your phone or the data because they have access to pro-level ultrasonic baths and specialized cleaners as well as the skills to troubleshoot your board. Many shops have a no fix/no fee policy so you don't have to spend money to find out if the phone is fixable or not. If the board doesn't appear to have been damaged by water, look for loose screws, missing shields/brackets or damaged flexes...anything that would make you believe this phone has been repaired. If that's the case, I would sell it for parts because who knows what was done to the board and clearly it wasn't a succesfull repair.
