    Kris has posted this but I just want to make it 100% clear.


    Water damage is NOT covered by the store.

    If you phone has gotten wet and you have insurance you need to call the insurance company

    Try the hairdryer on low but keep it moving and don't let it sit in one spot! I did this with my hubby's brand new phone 2 months ago and it worked like a charm! I took the battery out and took it apart some, yes, I am crazy! His wasn't a bb, but it worked!

    Insurance

    You won't get a new one from vzw either way no matter what you do. unless you are within your worry free guarantee period. (first 30 days after purchase)and your problem is a manufacturer defect.
    Asurion, which is the insurance company, will charge you around 80 bucks(deductible for smart-phones is that much) for a new phone and you can pay 8 bucks extra for overnight if not you'll have to wait 2 BD's. the liquid indicator stickers are in the battery and inside the phone and once they got wet they won't become white again. (paint is liquid)

    I'm suprised you can't buy the water stickers on ebay.

    Why no hair dryer, a couple of weeks ago I accidently dropped my wifes curve in a glass of soda. I pulled it out right away and took out the battery. We didn't have any rice in the house so I put her hairdryer on the low and cool setting and blew it for around a hour. The air wasn't hot or warm, it is basically a high powered fan. We left the battery off for a day and when I put it back in the phone started right up.

    insurance deductible is 50 bucks with free overnight shipping
