    My phone was left over night in a puddle with a little bit of mud, but for the most is has water damage. Will this be repairable?

    you can try, leave the battery out and place the device in a warm area for a day to dry out, or you can be brave and take it down to the circuitboard and let it dry out that way


    people recommend putting it in the oven at around 100-125 degress for a few hours, i wouldn't recommend this if you are not monitoring it's progress drying

    It may be too late, but since it's already useless right now, you might want to get some distilled water. Open your BB, remove the SIM and Battery, and Media Card if you have one. Then rinse the mud out and then dry the BB for several days. Leaving the residue in there can accelerate the corrosion that can result.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Hey thanks for the help. I just left it on the table for a couple of days with the battery out and then I was hoping it would work. So I put the battery back in and hooked up to the charger and to my suprise it worked. Thanks guys

    To use a media card, you need to buy a media card. bb's normally don't come with them as far as I know.

    And if you have a media card can you download videos from the internet?
