    ok for anyone who was reading this morning and saw my other thread this morning,
    my prior berry went swimming this morning.....
    poor berry...
    Sooo
    i now have replaced it with a new 8310 un-branded and a bright yellow otter box just for a little added insurance.
    total stupidity cost.......450 us dollars for a new unlocked berry, and otterbox.
    lesson learned......
    water and berries don't mix......

    I read in wired magazine to place it in dried rice. Then blow it out with compressed air. Good luck~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
