    Post Water DAmage !

    Advertisement



    Ok so Today i went to the beach and to make a long story short i submerged my blackberry pearl in salt water for about 3 seconds, after i found out i immediately removed the battery and the sim card and let it sit out for a couple mins. I got anxious and wanted to see if my phone was still alive. so i put the battery back on it and i tried to power it on and i didnt get anything but the camera flash flashing and the red light blinking. I then removed the battery again and as of right now my blackberry is sitting in a bowl of rice (uncooked of course) and i dont know what to do next.

    any suggestions ? do you guys know if t-mobile's warranty covers water damage ?

    any help will be appreciated.

    no one's warranty would cover water damage

    curiosity killed the cat, you know that let's hope your premature insertion of the battery didn't do anything...

    give it a day or so .. not just a few hours

    Yea you probably pretty much killed it when you put the battery back in to early. The only way that will be covered is if you have the insurance on it

    Why ditch Blackberry? Dude, get a Curve! It's awesome! Go to the T-Mobile store and play with one for a bit. I bet you'll love it.
