To include what you put in your other post:
GURU III PLZZZ HELP ME I HAVE A BLACKBERRY 9630 IT GOT WET AND KNOW I CANT FIX IT BASICALLY IT DISPLAYS '''"THIS HANDHELD DEVICE INCLUDES SOFTWARE THAT IS PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL TO RESEARCH IN MOTION LIMITED''''' Now i went to rim but it says i loose my data and only thing i care for is my data.
First things first...the moisture intrusion.
REMOVE YOUR BB BATTERY NOW!!!
Run, don't walk, to this FAQ:
Do everything it says, including waiting the maximum recommended time. Applying power 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.
Your data may already be gone...there is no way to be sure until after you have performed this process. But, like insurance, the time to do something about protecting your data (e.g., taking a backup with one of the FREE methods RIM provides) is BEFORE the need arises.
