For some reason my phone will not get a signal and it says initialization failed. Does it have something to do with my sim card? I did not do anything to the phone and it just started to do this out of the blue.

Remove the back cover, then battery. Wait for 2mins, replace battery and back cover. If the above fails, your will need to register your device to the BIS again. Use the following link: My blackberry initialization failed Hope this helps!! Tell next time, take care of your blackberry device.

try hard reset, the easiest way to do this is to remove the batter for 1-2 minutes and restart the phone, you will see a sandbox in the center of your screen. wait till it disappears and fully restarted. hope it works for you as it works for me.
Problem was when you got it wet, you did not let it dry long enough. Reason I say this is because when you tried to operate the phone again it shorted out.
Typically it takes about 48 hours to dry completely. The best way is to separate the battery and phone, put them in a bowl of rice and close it up for 48 hours. The dry rice will draw out every bit of moisture.
You really can't do much to fix it. Paying an expert to look at it find the damaged parts and replace them would cost many times over that of replacing it.
The SOS means your phone is locked and you can only use it with the original provider network it is possible that if you battery got super low or you updated your software you relocked your phone. Contact an unlocking service if you want to use another provider.
If your blackberry is locked with a password, they feature a fail-safe in every blackberry that will erase all the data on the unit if an invalid password was entered TEN times in a row. Keep in mind, that this will happen if someone is trying to use your unit without your permission (not a hacker, but someone who physically had your phone in their possession).
The reason that I say that is because the blackberry will prompt you to type in various phrases (including the word blackberry) through out your various bad attempts to enter a password. This is designed to slow the user down in the event that you are accidentally entering passwords (if its in your pocket), or if you genuinely forgot your password.
This may not answer your question, but this the only thing that makes sense to me.
