    My thread was lost during the problems with the forums here at treo central, so I feel an update is needed for those of you who may have experienced water damage and believe that treo-life as you know it is over unless you shell out the cash to purchase another unit.

    I am still waiting for my unit to arrive however I sent it to a place in Orlando, Fl, a cell phone repair shop. They gave me a call and it cost me $175 bucks to repair, the water had damaged the board and a slight spot on the screen. Now, i know that may seem like a lot of money, but when you think about it, if you're unable to get a new unit through insurance, you're better off repairing your own phone than getting a reburbished unit, which you know nothing about. Well, those are my thoughts anyway.

    I will post back as soon as my phone arrives. Life without the treo is really boring!

    Well, since that last post, my phone is currently being repaired. The shop had to order a board directly from Handspring, so next week it should be in route to me. I think it's terrific that they order the parts from the manufacturer, because otherwise, I don't think I would have ever gotten it fixed. So there is hope out there for someone else who may encounter the water issue.

    Well, I'm happy to say that my treo is back! and it's in great shape! Basically, the repair center in FL ordered a new board directly from Handspring. The back of my phone that has the s/n on it is new, but the lid and flip are the same. All I had to do was take it back into the sprint store for reactivation. No problem! Works like a if anyone else runs into water damage, there is hope...may cost you around $175 but at least you'll have your same phone.
