You have to keep the battery out of the phone and leave the back off and place the phone in a dry warm place...the top of the fridge is usually ideal.....this will allow all the moisture to evaporate from the internal workings of the device.....note that this process may take up to a week. its important not to try to use anything to speed up this process unless your willing to stick it out till the end....a blow dryer works too but you dont want to get the phone hot, your mainly wanting the warm air and low pressure to speed up the process.....and oh yeah KEEP THE BATTERY OUT OF THE PHONE WHEN AT ALL POSSIBLE. the cuircut board can short out and the phone never work again!!

if this doesnt work then the device has already shorted out.

The best way to unlock your Blackberry is to buy unlock codes from a trusted vendor.
Search internet for mobile phone unlocking websites. You will come across a thousand websites who can do this. Choose which ever you like. Do look for price comparisons and the unlocking instructions.
Recheck the Model number- Network to which your phone is locked to and the IMEI number before placing an order. If you made any mistakes in these details these people will never give you a refund!!
One more thing, before placing an order ask them about the conditions for getting a full refund in the case of a code failure! Think and make a wise decision. I have personally bought the code for my Blackberry Storm from unlockgenie.com. It is because they have good reviews on most of the mobile phone forums. I got my phone unlocked successfully from that website. I think their codes don't fail. The web link for the above mentioned web site ishttp://unlockgenie.com/

Bought a blackberry pearl flip off ebay, got it from hong kong, when i try to phone a number in my phone book it comes up +84 before number and then says cannot connect please help


Hi there, Open up the phone application, hit the blackberry button (to the left of the ball) and go to Options. From there, look for "smart dialing" - click on that one. In there, look for Conutry Code and Area code - make sure that area code is empty and the country code is the correct one for your country. The number length should also be changed to match. Hit the blackberry button again when done, and save. You should be all good now! Alex

Blackberry flip keeps shutting off, battery runs out quickly


Please check to see if you have water damage. Usually under the battery and on the battery there is a water mark generally white if it does not have water. If it is red then its water damage.
