Default Liquid Damage: Blackberry 9700 - GTA Repair facilities?

I accidentally spilled tea on my BlackBerry this am. On the assumption that it doesn't come back to life (not looking good currently) is anyone aware of repair shops that might take a look at this in the Greater Toronto Area?

And, you really really should read this first:

Got Your BlackBerry Wet? - BlackBerryFAQ

Note, 4-5 days drying time with NO battery inserted AT ALL.

Anything less is a gamble.

Cheers JSanders... 4-5 days will be tough, but definately worth NOT paying $500+ for a new one

99% chance of it working again, if you keep the battery out, and be patient.
I've done a few.

Time + no electricty + box of rice = success.

I spilt tea on my Panasonic Toughbook a while back... What did I do? Got a bottle of water and rinsed the tea off so it didn't make the keyboard sticky, lol... Haha. Good luck dude, fingers crossed for you.

Why do you think one of the major brands of rice is named Success?

I always go to a mall near pacific mall (i live in markham) to get my phone fixed, cuz the service over there is very good, and the diagnostic is free.lotz of my friends go there if they have any questions and problems.the name is* toronto repair*. I am not affiliated with this store so please don't take this as advertising. their price is much lower than other store---i guess becuase of the low rental fee and they dun need to hire technician. i dun like to go to pmall, cuz lots of scamers there---they always tell u that ur phone here is borken and there is broken, and ask for more money.
the technician is very nice and patient. i got my case and screen protector for free with the repair.they are in a mall called splendid china tower. I am not affiliated with this store so please don't take this as advertising. You can check the price first and decide if you wanna go or not. good luck!!
***due to somebody thought im spamer, i deleted the website, if u need it, u can msg me.***

Smells like spam, looks like spam, tastes like spam, quacks like spam -- why would I think it is anything other than spam?

Since your chosen place "dun need to hire technician", what do they use? Untrained skater kidz? Monkeys?

I'm sensitive in that we get maybe 15-20 "scamers" and spammers on the board here -- daily.

And they are 99% of the first time posters. And most of them speak in broken English.

So, I was "profiling" your post merely by what you posted and how you posted it. Now you know why I and we are so sensitive.

Thanks for removing the links.

@OP

You can go to Bongowireless (Welcome to Bongo Wireless) at WHY7 & Woodbine...they have an onsite technician and can perform water damage repair. Ask for Kevin =)

I accidentally dropped my 8800 in the toilet. I had to get rubber gloves to pick it up. However, I took the battery out and waited a week and everything was working like a charm.. But I ended up giving it to someone I didn't like right after that and upgraded to Curve.

I used these before 1 Hour Toronto Repairs: Blackberry, iPhone, Palm Treo, HTC, iPaq, Axim, PSP, PDA's, Laptops & Computers
They are right on Front st. I was there to repair a USB port on my 8830, but there was a guy there who dropped his iPhone in the tub...and they fixed it on the spot
