    My Pearl was great and then it fell out of my pocket when I was in the rain, and it was out buttons up for about 10-20 seconds. When I picked it up it said SIM Card Error, so I wiped it down and then reinserted the battery.

    It worked perfectly. No issues.

    However, now every few my BB messenger messages arent sending, and it's sitting on the hourglass and I don't know if it's still cuz of the rain.
    Is there any way to check??

    If you were to reinstall/restore to original software settings and it still occurs, its a hardware problem. If you completely disassemble it and scour the circuitry for signs of corrosion or use some electrical testing equipment you can be certain. LOL

    How do I do that? What does corrosion look like? Is this a time bomb? Would the corrosion have already occured? This happened over a week ago. Should I put in near some place warm?

    Remove the battery, and put the device in a bag of dry rice for 24 hours, see how it is...

    Ok, it's in the rice now, but I don't think I can be phoneless that long, will 8 hours cut it?

    3 hours and way too much separation anxiety. I shook out all the rice- and it's on now. I will leave it in the rice all weekend. I replaced the battery, should this make a difference?
