    Here's the story: yesterday i dropped my blackberry curve 9300 in the toilet. i picked it up within seconds and quickly took out the battery and dried it off. i got a container of rice asap and let it sit for over 24 hours. today, i tried it out. i turned it on, and it shut right back down. i tried it again and it worked, but was a little slower than usual. after checking my messages and whatnot for about 30 seconds, it shut down. now, whenever i try to turn it back on i get a white screen and JMV error 545 reset. im really not tech-savvy.. if anyone could help in detail i'd really appreciate it thanks a ton in advance!

    I had the same scenario with my BB wherein it fell in the toilet however i removed it within seconds and kept it in the rice bowl for 4 days. After 4 days i got the JVM error 517 and upon checking with the BB authorised service center they suggested me a OS reload.

    They warned me that there were 20% chances of the phone going Kaput while the reload happens and 80% recovery..i took the chance and voila it worked for me.

    You might wanna try the same. I'm from India

    If u know how you can totally disassemble the phone and heat the phone board with a blow dryer for roughly 2-4 minutes. Then reload the OS

    By now if he did not do anything to dry his phone it is better to toss it but you could try connecting the phone Without the battery and see if it makes a difference.

    My bb curve 9300 fell in water.

    Heres what i did: i took the battery out and used the back end of a blow dryer (coz it sucks air in) for about 20 minutes and its working again.
