Is there anyway to make my blackberry work after dropping it in water?

by on February 8, 2011

Q: My blackberry got immersed in water two days ago. I mistakenly put in battery in it, to see if it will work but it didn’t. All I could see was the red indicator light on the phone. The water indicator on the battery is still white. I checked the internet and later realized rice would help,s o I put the phone and the battery in the rice container. It’s been two days now but my phone has refused to come on. Please what do I do? I just got my phone two months ago. How long do I leave my phone in the rice container?

    If your phone was completely submerged in water chances are the phone is no longer any good. You can try and make sure it is fully dried out and try to power it back on but there is no guarantee that it will work.

    If you have insurance on your phone you can make a claim with them and they will replace it for you. But you will probably loose any data/items you had stored on your old phone.
