Default Blackberry 8820 water damage- fabulous

Please Login to Remove!

well it fell in water. i took it out asap and the phone was working fine- a few minutes later i started noticing problems, so i turned it off, wiped it down and turned it back on and it was still acting funky. So i dried it a little with a blow drier and turned it back on- everything works... except for the keyboard. the trackball can still scroll, but it can't select. & the keys must not be aligned.

my phone is off now- but will drying it more fix the keyboard problem or probably not? it's fine if it doesn't- i'm under warranty, but my ma doesn't want to mess around with that unless we absolutely have to.

i tried taking it apart but i don't have the right size screw driver to take out the screws & i may have stripped them anyways (if that is the correct term)

please helpppppp

Sorry about that. Just by turning it on, it may have caused more damage.
