How can a cell phone (Blackberry) be saved from water damage?
In general, the first thing that you should do is to switch off the phone and remove the battery (if possible) If it is just water, you could try to open up the phone and dry up the water using a hairdryer although it's probably best to send it for service. Above all, don't try to switch on the phone again until you are sure that the inside is completely dry.
The answers from wandererh are good. Here are a couple of other pointers. First, unless you have full insurance - and sometimes, even if you do - water damage is not covered, so it can be costly. Second, if you try the hair dryer, warm (not hot) and longer is best, or you might damage the cell phone. Third, you can also pack the cell phone in a box or bag of uncooked white rice for a couple of weeks. That will slowly dehydrate the cell phone, and it might work again. Fourth, if you have a warm, not hot, lamp, you can open the phone, remove the battery (if possible) and leave it under the lamp to warm for a day, and dry out. Good luck!
