    SO, my son decided to trip in the pool and fall face first...and hubby, phone in hand, jumped in to grab him. Well, we took out the battery and it was sitting drying....now we turned it on, and we have a white screen. It still works, but the screen is broken

    Sorry to hear that. Is the phone insured?
    A fool always finds a greater fool to admire him. Fools admire, but men of sense approve.

    YAY!!! Water problem fixed!

    Like I said on the 8800 thread, my husband got his 8800 soaked by grabbing my son out of the pool...well, we bought a Curve for $300 from Craigslist...well, as soon as the guy got here, the 8800 decided to work! LOL! Anyway...hubby bought it! LOL! Now we have two Curves in the family. Any chance they will mate and make me baby curves??? LOL!

    Re: HOLY COW!!! Water strikes!

    Weird drama. Important notes are;
    1. Don't turn electrical equipment on (remove the battery) for.at least a few days after it has been wet.

    2. A bb site recently showed an 8800 that had been recovered from a drop in some water by placing it in a bowl of uncooked rice. Anything to wick or pull away the left over water is good.
