    So my Pearl got wet and now it's acting crazy.

    Advertisement



    If I turn it on everything seems to be working fine except for the fact that every few secons my phone takes a picture. Also it's not recognizing my sim card, it says "insert sim card" and it has my number as "unkown".

    Any ideas ?!

    turn it off, take the battery out, use a hair drier for about five mins or put it over a lamp thats on and let it set over it all day, let me know how that goes

    Yea five mins won't evaporate all the water. I would give it a few days 3 or 5 to be safe. Turning it on is just going to make it worse if there is water still inside. The damage has probaly been done since you turned it on. Just let it air dry and pray.

    Yea then you're screwed. All the salt and mineral will eventually kill it. You can try and use some distilled water and rinse it out. But that's is a process in it's own. There is a few threads about this around the forums. Can't find it since I'm mobile. Just give it a quick search.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~just like they said, let it dry for a few. Also, take the battery and sim card out.

    See this thread for comments and feedback as well as the stickied threads above it.
    You probably have significant damage especially since you turned it back on so quickly.
    It's never a good idea to turn back on the device whenever it comes into contact with water
    no matter how much you want to.
