    Is it still under warranty? If there is no water damage, you should be able to get it replaced by AT&T.

    When the Bold gets wet it tends to do that. Your best bet would be to let it dry all the way out before using and try again and it should fix itself. I've also heard reinstalling the OS might help. My last Bold had gotten wet and even when I thought it was all the way dry the keyboard wasn't working right. After a day or two it fixed itself. My screen was screwed up though so I got another through insurance.

    Usually when a phone gets wet, if it doesn't get damaged electronically inside, then the best thing to do is to let it dry.

    If that does not work, probably the board of the phone has been damaged and will need to be fixed eventually.
