    Need Help! Please Asap!

    Advertisement



    my dumb, for better put words, girlfriend spilt a bunch of water all over my pearl and now nothing on it will work. the keyboard doesn't work, the trackball only rolls up and down but doesn't push in, and the side buttons, for like the camera and all that, dont work either. can anyone tell me what i can do to possibly save my phone or am i screwed and have to get another one?

    take the battery out, lay the phone battery side up and let it dry...do not attempt to turn it back on until at least tomorrow...

    maybe get a blow dryer on cool settings and try to dry it a bit...

    i dont think i do, but i have a friend that works for cingular and i dont think that they cover you for water damage since its usually the person's fault that it gets damaged that way

    If you are on Cingular then most likely you do not have insurance unless you purchased a 3rd party policy.

    liquidamage... i suggest you bring it to your local tech freak to disassemble, dry out & clean.

    just don't turn it on before hand.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    In cases like this we dry it a lot longer than just overnight. We let it sit in a climate controlled room for at least a week. Even with that we don't always have success.

    Canned AIR!! no heat! heat is bad! take it apart as much as you feel comfortable and blow it out from every direction. don't shake the can while you're doing it, or the propellant inside will come out and flash freez components.

    oh, nobody as said the most important step, GET A NEW GF!
