    remove the battery RIGHT NOW! use a blow drier and dry out the phone and the battery. be patient.. wait for a day. then try putting the battery back in.
    All the best!

    Re: killed pearl? need help

    I posted this somewhere else. But i dropped mine in the toilet earlier this week. I about died, of course I stuck my hand in there after thinking about it for 4.3 seconds. As I was laughing as myself for being an idiot, dried it with a towel and used a cool blow dryer from a distance. I opened it as much as I could and let it dry for a good day and a half.

    I tried turning it on a day ago and it works flawlessly. No water damage at all, only the indicator is red of course.

    Re: killed pearl? need help

    a great tip that ive told tons of customers and seems to work is remove the battery right away and put the phone in the refrigerator for a few hours. i think the cold air helps to prevent rust from occurring. anyways if it was just water your phone SHOULD work after a couple days or less when it dries out. its better than soda or some sweet liquid. sweet liquid causes the phone to rust inside.
