    Yeah. They don't like coffee either.

    I just wanted you not to feel too bad. Evidently my 42 year old husband thought that resting his BB on my FULL coffee cup would be a great idea. He dropped it in my coffee last night, and is just SICK because even though he got it out immediately, he has no sound {he can't hear anything unless it's on speaker}. So yeah...they don't swim and they don't like coffee.

    Re: pearl cant swim

    There was a trick I heard about with rubbing alcohol. Take a bowl of it and put the phone in it for a minute or so, then let the phone dry for a few days. It may work. If it's damaged now, what more do you have to loose? Something about the alcohol cleans off the board of rust and corrosion. Idk, but maybe it's worth a try?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~well wit Tmobile they do have a 14 day return thing that you can do so just switch the batterya and take it back and say it just stopped workin I work for tmobile and kno this works just a hint since you said that you just got the phone and there is a 1yr manufacture warranty so you can try.

    Re: pearl cant swim

    do the hairdryer trick, not to close to the components tho.. even tho you should have done this before you tried to turn on the phone.. but thats kinda late now..
    Its worth a shoot tho, there might still be wet in the ears..
    Ideally you should open the phone and use the hairdryer.

    Next time, just tell your son to post a post here at pinstack asking if it can swim
    Hope you get it sorted out,

    Cheers mate!
