    The threads that t i z j o n posted are great and have very good ideas.

    Places my BB NEVER goes near -

    Toilet, sink, shower/tub, pools, hot tubs, rainstorms, bartops at the pub... no wet/potentially wet conditions if at all possible.

    Bowl of rice. Not sure where the topic was. Think on other forum but same thing happened.
    Take sim card and media if have one. Put in bowl of rice and let sit overnight.
    I think the only problem was his speaker, but it started to work a couple of days later.
    I would also use compressed air to get has much water out.
    Hope it was clean water in the bowl

    That may not have been enough time. Keep it open, battery, sim, and SD card removed and wait overnight if not longer. You never know, it might come back.

    <fingers crossed>

    I feel for you. Mine went in salt water and there was no hope there. Hope it works out for you. I am careful with my new one like a brand new baby.

    Best.

    Whatever you do be patient!!!! Let it dry completley before you put that battery in. You should be fine just don't rush it.

    Good Luck with your berry. Use alcohol to disinfect your berry. You might want to wait an extra day before trying to turn it on. Again, good luck.
