After taking a bath for several minutes in a glass of water by accident on Thursday morning, it looks like my nextel might be making signs of life again. After Myself came by and helped me take it apart and soak the boards in alcohol, the phone now charges batteries, and boots to the point where it attempts to connect to the network. I think with a little more time spent drying, it might actually work again.
Now if someone I know in Michigan has a nextel phone based on the condor chipset, preferrably the i55 or i88 form factor, I need its power button. I broke mine while prying the boards out when my screwdriver slipped. I tried dumpster diving at several local repair centers and other nextel locations, and I'm coming up empty handed. Anyone want to hook a brother up? I'd be willing to pay a tiny amount and give back what I don't use...

and just how does a Nextel "accidentally" take a bath in a glass of water for several minutes?

Falls off the edge of the bed into a glass of water sitting on the floor when I wasn't paying attention. Once in a million shot, but the odds are never in my favor when it comes to breaking shit,
