    This thread is really useful: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...er_damage.html

    If you already let your phone dry for a month and it's still not working I would try to replace the battery and if that's not the problem then it's hardware and you will have to replace your phone.

    if you hook up the phone to a charger without the battery it comes on but you cannot turn the unit completely on. when i switched the battery with mines it still did not work

    I think it's dead
    T-Mobile has insurance on phones and I see you are with them. Try giving them a call or going into a store nearby.

    yeah unfortunately she did not put the insurance on it in time. so she does not have coverage for it. i switched the battery with the one for MY pearl yet it still will not start

    back to when it fell in the water did you try turning it on right then? there is a video on you tube that shows how long it takes the iphone to short out when its in water. im assuming its about the same with the bb

    Re: pearl cant swim

    no actually i did not. i figured if i tried charging it or turning it on then the whole chip would just burn or short circuit. and hopefully the phone is not dead:cry:. now my wife is so jealous of me since i play with my pearl and she can no longer play with hers

    your welcome if you want to take it apart you need a tork 6, wipe everything down on the phone and try it again if you can get it to boot try reloading the OS
