    Only advice I can think of is to let everything air out in the sun for an hour or two. If it's still under warranty then you may be able to get a new battery, if that's all that is wrong with it.

    BTW, batteries are only about $15-17 if you shop around. Here is a BST-14 battery for your phone for $16.95 (not including S&H).

    Whether or not the battery is ruined is unknown at this time. Try taking the battery to a T-Mo or Cingular company store (it appears that you have service with both providers - ?) and let them be the guinea pig(s). Probably not a good idea to try the suspect battery in your phone until you are sure that it is OK. Even if it's bad, a new battery for $16.95 is a relative steal and then you would have a backup battery.

    Well I got what I needed from that phone. what i wanted to do was transfer all of my contacts from my sim chip from tmobile over to my cingular sim chip. i got that done so i guess i can do is really wait. the only reason i got that phone was for the bluetooth which worked great. my tmobile phone are now deactivated so iam with Cingular now. Cingular is great.
