Blackberry Curve 9320 keypad and trackpad not working

So I have a Blackberry Curve 9320 and I accidently dropped it down the toilet. Both the water damage stickers (on my battery and on the actual phone underneath the battery) are red. So I put my phone in a bowl of rice in my airing cupboard for around a day and a half to dry it out (I also tried drying it a little with my hair dryer). Anyway, I charged it overnight and when I took the battery out then put it back in, it started up and the screen was working! Of course I was really exited, thinking it would work, only to realise the trackpad and and all keys/buttons are unresponsive. Is there anything I could try to get them to work again? Or if I took it to a phone shop would they be able to do anything? :/

Re: Blackberry Curve 9320 keypad and trackpad not working

Hi and welcome to the forums

 

Using the rice was a smart move it's the best way to save a device.

Unfortunately not all parts can be salvaged the keyboard seems to be the least tolerant

with water damage.

I'd suggest talking to the techs at Horizon Wireless. Several of the experts on the forum myself included recommend them for excellent service and reasonable prices. You can either have it repaired or order the parts needed.

Thanks,

HorizonWireless is no longer in business as a cellular repair facility.

 

You might contact any local Vodafone dealer first for repair options.
