Re: my phone got wet

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Before you try anything else...

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.

Good luck!

Re: my phone got wet

In addition to sdgardne's reply, I suggest having a serious talk with your cat.  Let it know that, like your phone, it can be replaced.
