    Media Card not detected in storm

    First of all, thank you everyone here for the great work. First blackberry and absolutely love it. Learn a lot on this thread.
    So to the question at hand. I accidentally got water on the phone saturday. Immediate battery, SIM card, and media card pull and used cool blow dryer on phone for 15 minutes. Got the screen to work again (flickered and shut off after water spill). Phone works great but it seems that the memory card is not detected in the phone or by the computer. shut off phone, media card out, battery pull, media card in, battery in. No such luck. Any thoughts?

    There's a good chance the media card was damged by the water spill. It looks like you took all the necessary steps. You can try another media card and see if that works. If not may have to replace your phone.

    Thanks Jlevy. I'll try that. Good thing I purchased the insurance. If I have to get a replacement should I downgrade to .75?

    Yes be sure to put .75 back on there before sending your phone back. For that matter make sure to put .75 on if just going into the store to have a tech look at it. When I went to get my replacement (I had to have the store look at it first), the first thing the employee did was check my OS.

    I would downgrade just to be sure. VZW does not support leaked hybrids.

    Retarded I say!! VZW needs to make there customers a little happier and get a release out. Although these leaks and hybrids have been fantastic. Haven't tried BBC v4 yet but sure it is great. Had BBC v3.5 before 132 and that was good. Will test out once I get the media card fixed. Thanks for the help again. I am gonna pick up a media card at WalMart and if that doesn't work just take it to the local store.
