Default Curve 8510 Keyboard Problem [Water Dmg]

Please Login to Remove!

Yesterday, I was washing my hands and I was dumb not to wash my hands - I instantly started talking on Blackberry making my track pad really wet inside (I'm guessing) and here are the problems that now exist:

1) My center track pad does not work. The only stuff that does work however is moving up down left and right. I have to open programs by pressing the Enter button which isn't so bad.

2) 3-5 keys are messed up. Some I know off the top of my head are L, S, and G. Whenever I press L on like BBM, for example, the option Send, full menu, etc pops up and it is too late for me to do anything about it, and instantly sends my msg without me pressing enter. For example, I was telling my friend "Come on MSN"

And while I was typing "S" in MSN, the message delivers as "Come on MS" which is so annoying. Anyways I did a little research and pulled out my battery for now and I see a white sticker and I wasn't surprised since it was not like I dropped my phone in a toilet or tub or something. I was wondering what I should do. I am really worried...:(

pull the battery and put the BB in a bag of new rice for a few days. if your lucky it will dry it out and work again.
