Default Moisture Under Trackpad

Please Login to Remove!

Title says it all....you know that mildly annoying plasticky sound that occurs when you get a tiny bit of moisture under the keys? I've got it!

I was out in the rain snapping a photo and get nailed with some drops.

So! Any tips to rectify this problem?

Take out the battery and leave the BlackBerry somewhere warm but not hot, like on top of a tv cable box for a good 24 hours.

Another excellent moisture removal technique is to put the BlackBerry in a tupperware container on top of some uncooked white rice. At least a cupful of rice. Leave it there for a couple days in a warm place. The rice sucks the moisture out of the air and provides a slow but thorough drying.
