    Put it in a bag of uncooked rice. I've gotten my BB wet twice now and that's saved it both times...

    Have your console ID and serial number handy. They're found on the back. You're probably under warranty. You'll have to send it in for repair. Mine took about a week.

    Had it in a bag of rice overnight. Didn't help. The screen is shot.

    It's something, anyway. I clicked the wrong link on that site earlier. At least I know that I have warranty coverage. We just got this a little over a year ago.

    Re: Do NOT....

    Do NOT submerge your bb in a full glass of Diet Coke.

    I had the honor of watching the screen flash, dim, brighten, dim, shudder and die. Had owned it three whole weeks. Luckily, had insurance (due to previous ordeals with phones), so the 'free' bb from the Thanksgiving sale cost me a $50 deductible to replace. US Cellular gave me a loaner, filed my claim late Tuesday night and had the new one Saturday. For an additional $15 I could have had it sooner, but why bother when you've got a loaner?

    Good luck, grasshopper.

    Re: Do NOT....

    Stuff like this makes me hesitate to buy a smart phone... because it is only a matter of time before I do something like this too (managed to crack the screen on my last 2 phones, including trying to get water out of current one. Guess I should have gone slower putting it under vacuum in that vacuum chamber )

    I'd try waiting at least 48 hours and DON'T try to turn it on in between.

    Re: Do NOT....

    Funny you should mention this. I dropped my BB Tour out of my coat pocket in a snowbank last night and didn't realize it for about 4 hours. I went outside and it was still running fine... thank God for that hard crunchy snow! I just took out the battery and let it dry out overnight. Working fine for me today!


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?
