Default Help, ive made a boo boo

Please Login to Remove!

Help my 9300 took an unexpected bath with a cup of coffee long story short i took the battery out and sim gave it a royal shake (gravity is great at getting liquid off things imo) wiped it as much as i could and put it in a bowl of rice for a while being most of the day. As i couldn't resist temptation i decided to try to switch it on..... it does switch on however the buttons seem to have gone a little mental when i press Q it does an N, when i press ALT it does a U and the scroll works on the blackberry button popup menu to show tray but doesn't scroll through apps and such, the button set seems to have messed up as sometimes it doesn't even register i'm pressing a button, when the back-light goes off for example.....

if anyone could help it would be much appreciated

It's probably too late as the damage is likely permanent since you "couldn't resist temptation".

Probably a goner as you didn't let it dry properly. Shaking the wet out isn't the proper solution for device such as a cell phone. You have to give it several days to dry out.
