Default Re: Help disassemble water-damaged BB Curve 9320 pls!

Several people have come here lately to ask about repairing water-damaged phones. 95% of the time, it's not worth the time or the money.

If you're going to attempt drying out your BlackBerry, it really should be left in a bag of rice for several days, not hours. As to your situation, you've either been very lucky, or it's going to fail on you soon. Since you've turned it on, any corrosion or short-circuiting has already begun. In my opinion, I would make a backup of the data and hope for the best, and prepare for the worst.
