    Upgrade went perfectly. Done via the Desktop manager from what ever approved source (I assume Blackberry) so I doubt it can be a virus. However it possible. I do not use the internet much on this particular device. Used for phonecalls and work document reference.

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.

I need to reload the browser app on my BB 8800, i got into applications and browser is there but will not appear on my desktop. im not retarted, i checked to see if it was a hidden icon, not there either....

Browser disappeared after your first syncing with the Desktop Manager
1. Run Desktop Manager, make a backup of your phone.
2. Go to the Phone and Device Support site, find the Blackberry Software Downloads link.
3.Download the new 8800 OS to your PC Desktop.
3. Run the install file from your desktop, follow the prompts.
4. Connect your 8800 to the PC, run Desktop Manager. You will be prompted to upgrade, click Yes.
5. Allow the phone to upgrade. This will take a long time 15-20 minutes is not unusual.
6 If it is working properly. You will get a white screen with spinning hourglass while this is going on.
6.Allow the phone to finish updating, it will reboot itself at the end of the process.
7. Hope this helps and welcome your Browsers back.

Note :: This is tested for perl but perl and 8800 has same features so lets hope for the best . And please let me know .

Broken mini usb port

I was able to get AT&T to replace my 8800 because of the mini-usb issue-it got pushed down and became unusable, I didnt have any water damage issue but I know they checked some indicator for that issue. I was surprised that no one offers insurance for blackberrys. Big risk using them!
