    the touch screen doesn't work at all. Are my tears likely to have caused enough water damage warrant this? I didn't cry loads, and my tears fell onto the side of the phone, though there were tears under the back cover when I took it off. It's in the airing cupboard drying out at the moment, but I'm not sure that's even the problem.

    You may need to get the touchscreen replaced. Go to the phone repair shop.

    Might have been that, sure sounds like it.
    Call the manufacturer or whoever will cover it and see if you can get it fixed.

    Indeed. Sweat and tears contain salt, which contains electrolytes. Electrolytes in liquids will eff up electronics a lot more than water will. This is why some people stress not to use phones, headphones, etc when you're sweating or excreting bodily fluids.

    With water it's as simple as drying it and putting it in rice for a few days if it isn't' that bad. Get a few drops of sweat or tears in the right spaces and you're done.

    I don't actually have any advice for you, OP. Sorry.

    It's working fine again after a few hours in the airing cupboard. Thank you all for your input, including the unhelpful comments at the top, which amused me.
