Flushed down toilet - everything working except speaker....

Hi, hope someone can help.

 

As the title suggests, I flushed my phone down the loo (it was an accident), but everything is now working perfectly, but I have no sound.

 

So, no ringtone, and I've checked the music & that's not working either.  I'm assuming something was fried, does anyone have any suggestions?

 

Thanks so much.

How long for and in what manner did you dry the device out?

I took the battery out immediately & let it dry out, then I took it to our local repair shop & he fixed it all up. 

 

I've tried a battery pull, but that doesn't seem to have worked.

How long was it dried out? Likely not enough, something like that REQUIRES 4-5 full days, not battery in, not checked during the process and left in dry rice the entire period.

 

Using the Device Self Test application on the BlackBerry smartphone may provide some additional diagnostic information to help identify the issue, see KB16037
