I picked up my blackberry to check to see if I had a message, and it wasn't working. At the same time I realized there was quite a bit of water dripping off of the back of my blackberry. I took the back off, and BAM! Water was coming out of the battery area. EGADS! What to do?
I read somewhere, once upon a time, that taking out the battery and putting both the phone and battery in a bag of rice over night would solve the problem. The rice would absorb the water and your phone would work again.
Was that possible?
(disclaimer - NONE of these photos are mine. looks like i'm not the only person who has had this problem!!)
The restaurant where we were enjoying cocktails has become a regular spot for us. They know what we like to drink. They know we are fine, upstanding citizens of Smalltown, VA. They know that we are good patrons. And therefore...they brought me a bag of rice :)
Everyone laughed at me. Most were quite skeptical. All I know is that this morning when I cam downstairs to check on my blackberry I was able to send the following message to E & M:
"Good Morning Ladies! Let me just say....wet blackberry + bag of rice = WINNING!! Had a great time last night :)"
So, in a nutshell.....IT WORKS!
Spread the word.
