Steps to recover a water damaged BlackBerry

Have you accidentally spilt a drink over your BlackBerry or your phone has fallen in the bath, pool or even toilet? Don't worry you can still save your device, here are a few steps that might help you to save your BlackBerry.

Phone warranties don't cover water damage, so unless you've got separate insurance coverage, it is unlikely to be replaced.

Only do this if you think you are capable of disassembly and reassembly of your BlackBerry device, these instructions if carried are at your own risk.

Use the BlackBerry Backup Extractor software to save your BlackBerry data

If you get to this part, things haven't been successful for you, and your BlackBerry phone is already dead or you can't use it fully. Now, you are going to need to search for a replacement phone. But, what about your BlackBerry data? Let's get that back:

  • Download BlackBerry Backup Extractor
  • Search for locally created IPD or BBB backups on your PC or Mac
  • Recover your data using BlackBerry Backup Extractor's easy interface
  • Import the recovered data, like contacts, email and calendars to your new phone
