I have a client who was pushed into a pool with his blackberry and now it is toast.  I wanted to see if anyone had any ideas on recovering his data off of the data card.  Client is a salesman and has a lot of customer contact data that he failed to back up.

    Sorry, I should have stated in the original problem, the sd card is fine, moved it into a new phone and it is working.  The issue is his data that he saved to the phone itself and did not back up to the data card.  Anyone know how or who can retrieve this data.  The phone will not turn on at all of course.

    I had a waterlogged Blackberry issue before. I had to disassemble it and then I left it in a warm place (near the same area as my furnace). A week later, I tried to power on the device and it worked fine. If you have the timeframe available, this is definitely a viable option.

    Accepted Solution

    Data was not able to be recovered off of this brick.  Closing Comment.
