    Thumbs down Bold repair

    Bold got wet when I had to jump in the pool to save a litlle girl that had fallen in. Did all the rice and drying and all works except the (0) zero key. Took it to my provider and they say they can not fix it. Does anyone know of a repair shop I can send it to. It seems to me that a new keyboard should fix it. My 2yr contract did not include insurance for water damage.

    You could probably order a keyboard from the likes of www.cnn.cn and repair it yourself. They usually have some pretty good how-to videos that accompany their parts.

    They're in China, so I hope you're not in a big hurry!

    Let us know how it works out.

    Cheers,
    Roger

    That was pretty heroic of you. Hope your bb gets fixed soon.

    The keyboard is just plastic though. Not sure changing that will help. What your plastic buttons are pushing is on the circuit board. I hope a new key board works for you, but I'm doubtful.
