Default Water in my 8100

Please Login to Remove!

Hi-I think, actually I know that I fried my BB pearl today with an unlucky water bottle in my purse. I am refusing to pay 100% more for a brand new BB pearl from Verizon. Are there any sites you can recommend for new or refurbised pearls? I just got mine in January, 08 and would prefer to stay with this model. Thanks much.

There is a chance that you might save it. Remove the battery and let it sit in a warm dry place for 5 days then give it a shot!

You can check the WTS section on this site. I know there are 8100's being sold all the time here!

Good luck!

As the post above said, let it dry for a couple of days. Dont try to use it during the days of drying.

also take it apart as much as you can, and put the parts in bags of dry uncooked rice and seal it. leave it there for several days. for repairs/parts try the third site in my sig
