Default Pearl continually reboots

Please Login to Remove!

I got my Pearl wet 2 weeks ago and let it dry for a while. When I put the battery in now it seems to boot normally. The home screen displays for about 30-45 seconds and I am able to view applications like contacts and calendar. As soon as it tries to acquire a signal, it reboots. The next time it comes up, it reboots immediately after displaying the home screen (not like the 30-40 second delay as in the first time). I've left it in this loop for 5 minutes or so, but never gets better.

Any thoughts? TIA!

How long was "for a while." If it was less than four or five days then it wasn't long enough. I suspect, as the poster above says, it's likely done.
