My BB Curve got wet this past weekend and now when

My BlackBerry Curve 8320 got wet this past weekend and now when I put the battery in it the LED display at the top shines red, the buttons light up, but there is no activity with the LCD display. I've already accepted that it is done but still have a tiny bit of hope that its not.

Place your Blackberry into a plastic bag with a half of a cup of uncooked white rice.
The rice will help absorb moisture from the inside of the phone.
Leave it there for a few days and try it again .
don;t use the phone right now at all, putting power into a wet phone can and will make it worse,
take the battery out and do the rice thing.
if you have a week wait a week and remove it from the rice.
Good Luck and Thanks for using FixYa

Don't have bb messenger on curve 8320


BB messenger is always there, perhaps the icon is hidden. On the application screen, press the menu key and select Show All, see if it is there and select it and choose to unhide it.

My BB 8320 will not power up


try turning it on with the battery removed while it is connected to the charger.
if it turns on fine then, it's a battery issue. if it still doesn't come on, i would recommend reinstalling the device software with the desktop manager software. both are available on blackberry.com

Take the battery cover off. Take your finger and press on the lens area (below the flash) you should hear a "snap". Don;t over do it though.

My Blackberry curve 8320 won't turn on it just has a battery icon with a red line through it on screen. A new battery was tried and the problem still exists.


This usually means the bb and battery got a little wet or has other issues. Try these solutions in order. They go from easisest to hardest. NOTE: If you have an insurance policy on the bb probably best just to take it in.

1. Remove the back cover. Remove the battery and the SIM card. Wait 30 seconds. Replace SIM, battery and back cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

2. If that doesn't work, allow the bb to remain unplugged but ON for about 24 hours to drain the battery. Remove back cover and battery. Allow battery and opened bb to sit in a dry environment for 24 - 36 hours. Relace battery and cover. Reboot. Plug in the bb and charge fully.

3. If that fails, retry step 2 but allow battery to FULLY drain then dry out again.

4. Take in to cell store.
