Default Hello from a proud crackberry owner! :)

Please Login to Remove!

I just joined the forums tonight, and I thought I would say hello to all of you! I am the proud owner of a 8300, and I am completely in love with it. Anyway, I was searching these forums all day yesterday, because I accidentally dropped my blackberry into a bucket of water. Thank god it survived the incident after 24 hours of drying out, but I decided to become a member after that near death experience! Anyways, hope to see a lot of you around the forums! :D

Welcome to the forums!!! That is now way to start off your relationship with a berry! Trying to drown it! The next few days will be critical to watch it. You might lose a battery before it's over.

Welcome to the forums! There are a great bunch of members here and lot's to learn and share!

you might want to set it aside to let it try a bit longer...water finds its way into everything. If you can, put it in a warm/dry place overnight. On top of a cable box/computer or something like that. Not too much heat though.

Welcome to the forums...you will definitely enjoy your stay
