    Like I said....emersing into alcohol works the best.even if you can't see the "gunk" its stll on there. Yes I a 100%sure it is safe. The best kind to use is denatured alcohol as isopropyl rubbing alcohol contains much water..~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    That'll teach you to do drunk berrying! Glad you were able to rescue your device from such a traumatic situation!

    pikko.....translation! All I caught was battery, good, problem, & my name.

    Thanks kieran! I'll give that a try then. Can you get that alcohol just any where, like walmart?

    Thanks fellow stackers for all your advice. Sure hope it works!

    Boy is denatured alcohol hard to find!!! Lowes was the only store that carried it. I've dipped it twice & am now waiting for my bb to dry out. Gonna reassemble in about an hour.

    Keep your fingers crossed!

    NB,

    Leave it sit a bit longer without power (like overnight). I generally recommend AT LEAST 24 hours with NO POWER after moisture exposure.....

    Good Luck!

    BTW - Amigo Tek has a shop that specializes in moisture damage -- you may want to contact him...

    I got my bb up and running!!!! The only lasting damage from the dunking I see so far is there are some lighter spots on the LCD, mostly around the top. Is there anything I should do, or just leave it be? At this point I'm afraid to do anything bc I might mess it back up.

    Thanks for all yall's help! W/out you I wouldn't be a bb user anymore!
