Default Any ideas?

A month or so ago, I dropped my BlackBerry in the bathtub. Put it in rice and it worked fine until the other day. I was in McDonalds and spilt a couple of drops of coke on it while it was in my holster. It wasn't even in a place that it could get in the phone. Well, I wipe it off, put it back in my holster. Take it out 10 minutes later and it is off. Do a battery pull, nothing. About an hour later, it comes on, all is well. Later that night, dies again. Same way, in my holster. It will not turn on now. I cannot use the warranty on it, due to it being dropped in the bathtub, even though I don't think this was caused by that. Any ideas? I'm not getting no led or nothing.

I did. Manager does not detect BB, due to no power I am guessing.

Well, I broke down and bought a new one.

If anyone has any ideas on how I can get my other one fixed, please let me know so I can give it to my brother. Thanks.
