ok so i dropped my pearl in water. i let it sit on a fan blowing on it for a day put the battery in and the red light on top blinks 3 times stop for a sec then does it again. so then i opened it up and cleaned it all out with rubbing alcohol, now the light has a constant blink. so my ? is what does this mean when it is blinking like that. Is the phone toast?
Thanks
Matt

You might have put your battery back in too soon

Listen to Jadey and follow the instructions in the links she posted. She won't lead you astray :smile:

Just remember to be VERY patient. I know you will get the urge you want to put your battery back in to see if it is working yet. Just be patient. Believe me, it will be worth it in the long run.

I wish you good luck and hopefully you will consider getting insurance in the future
