    So, I dont know if this has ever been posted or discussed before but I want to save everyone from the horror of what I've done.... Yep, you guessed it. I was cleaning out the desktop and laptop keyboard with those air cans.... Thought I'd do the blackberry too... Yea BIG MISTAKE. It destroyed some of the parts... Such as the mic. While chatting it up on the phone the mic goes in and out. Caused the liquid indicator to trigger and now warranty shows it as damaged and now its not covered. Looks like I'll be buying a new phone!!! Just wanted to warn everyone of my screw up!

    I was just thinking . . .

    First, that sucks a bag of donkey d!cks!!! Sorry, buddy.

    Second, aren't the "I got it wet" indicators on the battery? Cheaper than a new phone might be a new battery, then a warranty claim for the phone. Just a thought on working the system.

    I'm from the government and I'm here to help.

    I shook the can up pretty good. I did the whole blackberry. The battery doesnt hold more than a 10 hour charge. Thanks for all the sympathy. Can't decide if Im going iPhone or Curve...

    It seems you have to avoid condensation... that's why they suggest to do short shots of air, instead of a continuous shot, because it get condensed... had same issue with keyboard, but let it dry.... no problems so far...
    Good luck, and I agree... it is a good way to justify the switch to curve

    How close are you spraying? Are you holding the trigger down too because you're not supposed to. You're supposed to be doing short bursts or the liquid from inside the can will come out.
