Its confirmed. I washed my car today with my jacket and 8800 on the front seat. Apparently my sunroof wont keep the high presure water out and my BB formed a crater that caught about a pint of water and submerged the battery and contacts. After drying it out most of the keyfunctions came back long enough to perform a sync and complete backup. But after waiting an hour or so for better dry time it wont power up at all. Btw an Otterbox is a great defense but its not waterproof.
Well Im glad I have the insurance now so its only a $110 deductable vs 250-350 for a new one. But now I have to revert back to a Sidekick 2 untill tues. Trust me its not the same I am going thru withdraws as we speak.
Omg! Story of my life! This happend to me last month! No joke from the washing the car to using my old sidekick 2!!! So I know how you feel it sucks hardcore!!I hope you phone isn't comin in with DHL cause they will lose your package!
