    PROBLEM Help Fast!

    Advertisement



    Ok so earlier today I accidently spilled a LITTLE bit of water on the pearl. But it worked for an hour, now the keyboardd doesnt work at all. If I jam keys it lights up (meaning some work). I called att and even though I'm PAYING for insurance, it's not insured. I'd have to pay full price. Suggesstions? Cleaning tricks? Help!

    Or should I wait for the iphone? =)



    Cheers!
    Chris

    well, att doesn't offer insurance on their smart phones, so if you've been 'paying' for it, i'd get my money back

    FIRST - TURN THE BB OFF
    what exactly is a 'little' water

    the power to the bb doesn't really go well with water so you might have fried your keyboard...i'd leave it off until at least tomorrow morning

    Pull out the battery and let it dry out. You should have done that right away. Other than taking it apart and cleaning it, those are your only options.

    took it apart turned it off and sprayed it with a hair dryer. I mean a little water as in less than bathroom paper cup and it ran over it. But it worked. Pray and hope tomorrow, when is the iphone release?

    The 29th my friend the 29th...good luck. I'll stick with old faithful. Maybe if TMO ever gets it, but I doubt that I will switch, I love my BB too much! And you can't ask for a better forum community!

    cvanallen sorry about your handset mate, strange to hear ATT does not cover smartphones.
    Good luck if you are going for the iPhone. Well as red said, you could not ask for a better forum community than pinstack.
