    If it isn't working after drying with the hair dryer, take the battery out and seal the phone in a bowl of dry rice for a day or two. It may not take long to dry it out since you didn't immerse the phone.

    Hint for the future - Har dryer very bad - can push water to other areas of the phone or deeper in. Rice or air dry is the best. Sorry to hear this has happened.

    Once I was cliff jumping into water and I had my blackberry laying on my shirt on the ground. Well these guys brought their dogs and one of the dogs decided to shakeits water onto my blackberry. It was only a few drops but the water got under the screen and left a vapor like look under the screen. I wasn't sure what to do so I took out the battery and let it air dry for a few hours and the vapor went away.

    Rice good. Air bad. You must seal it up airtight in a baggie with the rice for at least 24 hours, I recommend 2-4 days. You're forcing the rice to take all the moisture from the air, and then all the moisture from the blackberry. If you take it in and out of the rice, or leave it out in the bowl, it only takes air moisture, not berry moisture. Bag it up, my friend!

    If you want music while in the shower invest a few bucks in a shower proof radio...BBs and water are not a good combo.

    I have a pair of bluetooth speakers in the bathroom. I leave the bberry in the bedroom sometimes. I just like to be a rebel and change the pandora channel while showering. Still... No damage. 2 yrs now. Go me!

    Sounds like it's still not completely dry. Put it back in the rice and let it work some more. It usually takes a couple days to get it all out.
