    Sometime last night, I spilled a cup of water on a carpet, and my Curve was near it. I think it was keyboard-down, because this morning, I find that the trackball will not "click" normally. From the main screen, when I click the trackball, it tries to dial * and #. Right now, I took the battery out and am just letting it dry, hoping that will help.

    I have a feeling I probably killed it, but does anyone else have any suggestions as to how I can help fix it? I don't have phone insurance or anything (great idea, I know) and bought the phone on Ebay earlier this month.

    Thanks for your time!

    Also, patience is the most important thing. Do not try to fire up the BB until your sure its fully dried out. A few days for your instance is good. Place ur battery and berry ontop of a cable box,monitor or tv set. This emits low heat and will help in the process

    I actually dropped my BlackBerry in the water while fishing this Saturday. It was still on and displaying its screen in the water. Fully submerged. I grabbed that sucker out. Attempted to suck all water out of it. Took the battery door off, took out the battery and let it sit in the window once I got home. It's with me today and working. I did file a claim, just to be safe. But mine did the same thing as yours. I press a key and I get something completely random. Once it dried out completely it was fine as far as I can tell.
