    Question Bberry Can't Swim...

    So, I had an unfortunate accident today. Entered a swimming pool with my Pearl in my pocket. No, seriously.

    Should I consider it a write off or is it possible to repair?

    Don't try to turn it on, rip the battery out and put the phone in a jar of dry rice for a few days. Then try it use it. If that doesn't help then you need a new one unfortunately

    Yeah, I pulled the batt almost immediately, but don't have any rice around the house. If the rice works that well, maybe I'll have to go get some.

    It was a refurb phone with no warranty, so I'm not looking forward to having to buy a new phone. And once you go blackberry, you don't go back...

    This is an excellent upgrade opportunity! A new 8110/20/30 or even a Curve! Do it do it so i can live vicariously through you...
