Hi, It may never work again BUT!!! Take the battery out, take the phone apart as much as possible and place the phone on a register vent with the fan switch set to ON or in front of a fan for about 3 or more days and try it again. water usually does not hurt electronics as long as there is no power to it and it is dry when you put power to it. If this even happens again, Get the battery out of it as soon as possible an DO NOT REPLACE IT OR TRY TO CHARGE IT until it is completely dry. Water and powered electronics do not get along in any way shape of form. Especially salt water. You will probably have to replace the phone. Your saved information may be on the sim card. Good Luck. kstfas

Causes of Tsunami

Tsunami is a Japanese word meaning ''huge wave'' that refers to a series of large ocean waves. It is caused basically due to underwater earthquake, Richter magnitude exceeding 7.5 to produce a destructive tsunami.

Concept can be summarized as follow:

The earth is constantly moving on large tectonic plates. When these tectonic plates moves past each other, collide and/or slide under one another an earthquake results. This is what happened with the recent tsunami that devastated Southern Asia. A massive earthquake in the Indian Ocean measuring 10.0 on the Richter scale jolted the seabed causing the sudden displacement of a very large volume of water. The earthquake temporarily produces a fluctuation in the mean sea level of a specified area. Waves quickly form as the displaced water tries to recapture equilibrium by filling the vacuum that was created. Tsunamis are a series of extremely long waves that are created after a large volume of water is displaced. The amount displaced must be significant enough to create waves underwater in the vast ocean. Waves are formed as the displaced water mass moves under the influence of gravity to regain its equilibrium. The larger the displacement, the larger the wave generated.

I have been at the beach fishing when a big wave soaked me. My blackberry has died since...after I tried to dry soon as I put the battery inside Bold 9000, the flash is turn on forever and nothing is...

just remove the user serviceable parts like battery, cover, keypad and keep it close under a 100 watts bulb. you should have done this alreadyand the problem will be solved if its just rain water. but since the water is salty(beach) it should have affected the ic chips. you need to take your phone to a mobile service centre as soon as possible.

Phone Immersed in Sea Water = DEAD!

For many years it has been known that Electricity and Water do not go together. Since mobiles work with electricity - although low voltage - it is therefore NOT surprising that your phone no longer works.

Indeed the sea water is not only a very good conducter of electricity so it would have shorted out the delicate componants and that is why it no longer works, it is also very corrosive and therefore would make the phone unrepairable.

I'm afraid the only answer is to get a new one..
