What did you do? Did you bring the BlackBerry into the shower? Or did you handle it with wet, dripping hands? What, exactly?
Handled it with wet dripping hands, and yeah I know not to turn it on, just I didn't know it had something to do with water, because usually I type with dripping hands and nothing happens, I just thought my blackberry froze. The indicator where the battery was, was white.
How long would it take to dry out? I'm going on vacation on saturday morning (6-7 am EST), and would at least like to check if it works friday night, and if it doesn't, open it up and try cleaning it out. Or is that not advised and should I just wait until Saturday Morning to check if it works?
I put it in the rice on top of a cable box on Thursday about 1 pm EST.
