Re: HELP my blackberry bold 9900 fell in water :(

Hello hazemtoka


Welcome to Support Forums




If our BlackBerry ever got wet then we should not try to Turn it ON to see if it works . Should immediately remove the Battery , also SIM  and Media Card. We should place it in a bag of Uncooked rice which absorb the moisture .



Should leave it for atleast 3 to 4 days unless we are sure that moisture has been completely absorbed . Then we should place our BlackBerry on any heat emitting surface like stabilizer etc , Or in the dashboard of a car on a sunny day. Before inserting the battery we should be sure that it is completely dry.


 Have you done this after your device got wet ?


Still after following those steps it is not guarantied that our device will be trouble free and will perform as earlier , because when moisture or any liquid substance enter our BlackBerry  it starts corrosion which leads to problem like quick battery drainage , problem in typing and many more .


In all condition we should try to avoid our BlackBerry from any moisture intrusion or any liquid , liquid or moisture is the worst enemy of our BlackBerry or any electronic devices. 


Finally if you never conducted those inital measures , Then that BlackBerry will be useless , you can try a local repair shop but result will not be fruitful.


Sorry !

For future reference, NEVER blowdry a battery. You run the risk of blowing moisture deeper into the battery. Use the recommendations made by prince2012.
