Unhappy My Blackberry curve 8520 got screwed up

Please Login to Remove!

Went jogging with my phone in my waist band and got some sweat in my phone. I notice that the LED light is constantly showing yellow. My keypad had gotten stuck for a while. The phone then went dead. I went home and charged it overnight thinking that was the only problem. In the morning when i checked the yellow light is still there i also got the keyboard and trackpad to work, but now the keyboard light is not stating on. I know the lights aren't blown because when i take the battery out and put it back the whole phone lights up including the keyboard. Now I don't know what to do. The battery is out now and i have a fan running infront of the phone....HELP!! Do u think this will work and how long u thing i should do this for.

A couple days. Some prefer putting it into rice to absorb the moisture. Personally I would bet its fried. Sorry
