My blackberry phone has been damaged by water. It fell out of my shirt pocket during a storm and into a large puddle of water and mud and was subsequently driven over by several vehicles. I thought 'That's IT!!! My phone's BUSTED!!!' I'm surprised that after leaving it to dry out for three days, it still works!!! Albeit with a screen that has some distortion.
Is there still a chance that my screen can be repaired??

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
You have been very lucky indeed...but...I recommend that you
REMOVE YOUR BB BATTERY NOW!!!
Run, don't walk, to this FAQ:
Do everything it says, including waiting the maximum recommended time. Applying power to your BB between it getting wet and doing this process reduces the chances of success. Further, the only thing predictable about moisture intrusion into a BB (indeed, any electronic device) is that the results will be unpredictable. I've seen some come back up right away and be fine. I've seen others never work at all. I've seen still others run for a bit, and then die later. And every thing in between.
