Default My BB Storm Got WET -- HELP!!

Please Login to Remove!

ohkay i was at the pool yesterday and my phone was under a towel , then my friend comes out the pool dripping wet grabs the towel and my phone dropss ! the back came off and everything .
so i believe it got wet when it was on the wet ground ...
so the phone wouldnt turn on at first the the red button would come on and the lights would light up but wouldnt turn on .
so i let it sit for a while and it turned on and was working FINEE !
but last night it turned off and wouldnt turn back on .
i have to keep taking the battery out and putting it back it ALOT
for it to completely turn on ..
now it just wont turn on again .

I guess our SEARCH and FAQ buttons must not be working today.

Since you turned it on before it dried completely, you probably damaged the motherboard and the electronics. Water and BBs do not mix and mingle very well. You can try placing it in a bag of rice for 4 or 5 days and see if that will dry it out, but I think it is probably a goner.

Your BB Storm got toasted. No need for a BB to be around water, EVER!
