Here's a story with a happy ending. I was in the midst of a downpour yesterday and jumped out of the car to run into a building, unforunately my brand new Z10 decided to jump out of my pocket. It landed in about three inches of water flowing through a gutter and since it was dark I couild find it for about 5 or 10 seconds. I thought it was going to be dead but I took it apart and let everything dry overnight and BAM! everything worked in the morning. So props to Blackberry for making a machine that can stand up to tsunami-like rainstorms and work like a champ! Thanks Thorsten!
You are lucky. Verizon was thinking of giving swimming lessons for your phone and others. Since they are milking the customers with that $30 upgrade fee they wanted to give you much more for your money. I am teaching my iphone to swim as I write this but it won't jump in the pool. My what should I do?
