HELP I put my BB in the washing machine !!
Well yes I did it .
I had my BB curve 38330 in my bathrobe pocket and washed ( full cycle) in the washing machine.
I used a blow dryer on it ( I know I just read that probably made it worse !)
I have it (yes battery out) in a plastic bag full of uncooked rice on top of the cable box for a heat source.
I will try and check in in a few days ( how many days should I wait ?)
Has anyone had success?
PS. I had the worst time trying to figure out how to post here on the forum. I finally clicked on contact below and it told me to post and "poof" that is when the only time was that I saw where I could click on where it says new post ?

4-5 days. No battery in to "check it".
Got Your BlackBerry Wet? - BlackBerryFAQ

I've successfully dried out a half dozen (two of mine, four of friends) and unsuccessfully on one which was a victim of salt water, leaving minerals and salts to dry on the circuit board -- not good.
