Sometimes you can bring a phone back from the dead by thoroughly drying it out. You can do this by placing it with the battery removed in a warm dry place such as your oven after heating it and TURNING OFF THE ELEMENT. Be sure it's not too hot, not more than 50 or 55 C. You don't want to damage the components. This worked for a relative who dropped his curve in the toilet.
You should be diligent enough to dry your phone first before turning it on. Like dumping the phone, battery cover and battery in a bowl of uncooked rice, it helps suck the moisture out of the components, or you could try de-humidifiers but it would take sometime.
Boots up, but after the Blackberry loading screen then Rogers, it reboots.

Hi, my brother washed (laundrey cycle) his Pearl! I told hom to just shove the parts in a bowl rice and then we went shopping for a Curve 9320. He did start the Pearl up after 4 days and has all his contacts and calendar appts intact, which is amazing since the poor thing was washed spun and rinsed for a good 25 minutes. He is real happy with his Curve now (grin)
