Help someone! i just spilled water on my blackberry bold 9700. So what happen was, i was at my friends house and my phone was underneath where i was sitting.. so i was holding a cup of water on my hand and my friend accidently bumped in to me and it spilled on my phone. So what i did was i took the phone apart and dried it inside with my t-shirt. My friend didnt have any rice, so i waited half an hour till my mom came and picked me up so i went home my mom called her friend and she said use the hair dryer so i tried it nothing happened and i put it in a box with rice and sealed the container. Am i good so far? Btw when i tried turning it on it appears a red light for a couple seconds and it goes off.




can anyone help me here?

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!


You've done what you can. Keep following this FAQ:

Hopefully trying to turn it on earlier didn't totally fry it. There's no way to know. Be patient and prepare your mind for the worst...then, if it's fine, you have a pleasant surprise.


Good luck!
