Dropped my new Curve in water. Dried it with a towel, put in in rice and used a hairdryer on it. At first, the scroller was working, but then it stopped. I put it under the hairdryer again and then the phone would switch on and reboot repeatedly. I then put it in rice to dry some more. The scroller still isnt working. This happened about 12 hours ago. Any suggestions?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
12 hours is nowhere near long enough, so
REMOVE YOUR BB BATTERY NOW!!!
Run, don't walk, to this FAQ:
Do everything it says, including waiting the maximum recommended time (given what you've already done, I'd recommend even longer...5 days).
Applying power (as you have done) to your BB between it getting wet and doing this process reduces the chances of success. Further, the only thing predictable about moisture intrusion into a BB (indeed, any electronic device) is that the results will be unpredictable. I've seen some come back up right away and be fine. I've seen others never work at all. I've seen still others run for a bit, and then die later. And every thing in between.
