Blackberry got wet...

A month or so ago my blackerry 8300 was in a bag that a water bottle opened up in, I immediatly took the battry off and put it on the vent to dry out. It since has completley dried out and it works to make calls and check internet ...BUT the screen light will not come on you cna barely make out what is on the screen. Is this something that is fixable , ive seen replacement lcdlights and screens, what should I do? I didnt have insurance since it is a small buisness phone. Can you help?

I have locked my blackerry put pin in wrong and now it has a funny sign on it

Just type any password until you attempt 10 times password failure, it will make your blackberry 8700g unlocked and you can setup new password for your blackberry. But you will lose all your previous data after your blackberry unlocked.

My rolling ball is not is there another way to work the phone

Try cleaning it by gently prising up the silver bezel take the trackball out and run it under water (turn the tap on quite a way so there is a bit of pressure, but don't get your blackberry wet!!) dry it thoroughly and put it back in check youtube for a video of how to do this, its very simple and can fix your blackberry, i assume it can can still select things??

My blackberry 8300 will not turn on, recent water damage. It worked before and after I dropped it in water, but now it won't turn on at all.

If your BlackBerry gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.
2. Pull out the battery.
3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.
