Unhappy Unresponsive 7150t

Please Login to Remove!

Today, I spent about 20 seconds in the rain, and found that afterwards all of the buttons on my BB 7150t had become unresponsive. The unit was in my pocket, and didn't get any water directly on it, and hardly got damp at all. The trackwheel will still operate up and down, but it's click function and the function of all other buttons on the device (including the on/off/backlight button) no longer work. I have tried a hard reboot by removing the battery and replacing it several times, but to no avail. Anyone have any ideas?

Take the battery out and dry everything out as much as possible. I'm not sure how much moisture it would take to affect the insides however I would still take whatever steps you can to dry it out.
