Ok yes the phone is probably gone, BUT you might be able to get it to work long enough to do a backup by getting the moisture out of it. There are 2 good ways to do this. The famous rice trick, and also denatured alcohol. First off take the battery out if you have not already done so. For the rice trick, place the BB, back off in a bowl of uncooked rice, place the battery in there too. Make sure the device and battery are covered over by the rice, BUT that it's all open to the air. Wait 24 hours, then take them out and try the device, IF it works, do a full backup on Desktop Manager.
Ok the alcohol trick, and this can be used WITH the rice trick. Get the purest alcohol you can by from the hardware store, it's called denatured or pure alcohol, and it's used for cleaning electronics. You need to get 90% or greater, 96% is probably what you will find, and this is perfect. Do NOT get regular 86% drug store alcohol! Dip the device in the alcohol and let it dry (withOUT the battery in it) Again wait 24 hours, use the rice trick, it works well with the alcohol trick!
