Re: my blackberry dived down the toilet.

May be dead but maybe not be fully dried out either. You should ideally leave it in a sealed bag of uncooked rice in the airing cupboard for at least a week. If still no good your best bet would be a local repair shop which are usually cheaper than the likes of CPW etc...
