    Water Damage!

    Advertisement



    Okay so on sunday I was at a nightclub and it was a foam party and i got my curve wet because it was in my pocket..I got in the car from the club i saw my phone screen was black but the keyboard lights were still on.i took the battery out and once a day i have been checking to see if it comes back functional since bb's are tough..today i turn it on and the screens back to normal but the buttons nor the trackball are reacting..should i wait a few more days or just pay the $50 fee to send a new one out

    You can try and take it apart and clean it very very very heavily, but it will more than likely still be unresponsive. Good thing you got insurance. Go ahead and call Asurion tonight.

    I would have to agree with N8 on this one. The good thing is you may be able to save the data you have since it will power up now.

    Rice works best on a fresh wet - however your BB probably is dead. Too many delicate parts that just do not swim well............I guess you could also check the sticker under your battery - if it has changed colors your Berry did indeed take a significant bath. Make the claim.........it is the safer long term bet and investment.
