I was performing some maintenance on my pool, with my Curve in my pocket. I took a misstep and fell into the water.
The first thing that I thought about was my BB, that it was ruined. as when I took it out of my socked pocket, I saw the screen flash, a green light on the LED, then blackness.
But I remembered what I had learned from the forums, and immediately removed the battery, and began to shake as much water out as humanly possible.
I just knew it was dead when I saw the moisture inside the screen!!!, but I searched the forums, and the internet. and came upon a page about placing it in rice,
but like someone who was willing to go to the extremes to save a true companion, I poured a bowl of rice and placed the phone in it. the next morning most of the moisture was gone, when I put the battery in it started
but there were water lines throughout the screen
, so back to the rice it went, and thoughts of the successor were going through my mind.
That night I tried again, this time all I got was the dreaded red light, or a completely white screen (It's Dead, 3 months to go on the contract.) but back in the rice it went.
The next morning I put the battery in, it started right up
back to its old self. To sum it up: Soaked blackberry can be saved, just takes some time, and possible some rice.
