    no screen protector on your bold?

    i would put the bold in a bowl of rice for 24 hours. take the battery out before doing this.

    the trackball incident happened to me too but you just have to give it sometime. it works eventually.

    Usually just hold the phone upside down and roll the trackball around roughly to get it working again.

    yup took my battery out, i dont have rice so its sitting by my window, do you think the alcohol will stay there or will it eventually go away? i have att's insurance so i can replace it but i already modded it so much

    im not sure how it reacts by sitting by a window sill. i know a bowl of rice works best. many people had water spilled onto their phones, and they used a bowl of rice to do the job. and their phone was back to normal the next day.
