Unhappy Blackberry Got Wet, Help

Please Login to Remove!

My phone got wet last saturday, so i've been keeping it in a container of rice, i've turned it on a couple of times and most of the watermarks are gone, but i still can't see the little clock symbol indicating that the blackberry is starting up yet. is it too late to save my blackberry or do i give it more time? and if so, what else can i do to fix it? thank you

You would have to keep it in the rice for at least a week, some may say less, but if you kept turning it on prior to drying it out you may have fried it. At this point you might just want to try charging it.

See the FAQ for an article on what to do if and when you get it wet.

In case someone actually searches and finds this thread.

The worst thing you can do is leave the battery in and keep "checking it" without letting it dry for several days.

EDIT: I guess there are worse things but this has gotta be in the top 2.
