    Bold got wet 3 days ago.... Let it dry completely and everything is working, except it is always looking for a network. SIM card is in. Seems that maybe something is not working on the radio. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Chances are that the phone is not totally dry after only 3 days naturally. My bold went swimming for a good 15 minutes, not just a dunk. I rinsed my phone with alcohol to flush moisture and let it dry in rice. Booted up after about 3-4 days and it has worked flawlessy for 5 months now. Drying a phone after water damaged is not something that you can generally rush. I know many bolds that have gone swimming and came back to work fine. Just take the proper steps. Hope this helps! Good luck!

    Old school trick. Pull the battery and throw it in a sealed container of rice for a few days. The rice will pull the moisture out of the phone if there is any left.
