    on one ascend but it was water, not mines tho. But with sugar it will leave sticky substance and residue, but he can always try a blow dryer. But a second option is take the phone apart and use alcohol wipes and wipe off everything twice as it dry from the first time wiping it, than put it back together.

    Spilled a whole 44oz Pepsi on my netbook. When I say whole, I only took 2 sips from it. When the soda fell over the top popped off, and poured on the dang thing, like Niagara falls!
    I thought fast, and pulled the battery and then flipped it upside down. Ran into my garage and grabbed my gas powered blower. Hit that thing full blast, and got most of the liquid out. Let it sit for a couple days, it turned on but the screen was all messed up. Took the battery out again, and pulled out the blower one more time. Then I grabbed a bag of rice at the store went home put netbook and rice in a trash bag and let it sit about 2 weeks. Pulled the netbook out after the two weeks and was up and everything worked fine. In fact, the computer is still running, and haven't had a problem with it at all. Guess I was just lucky.

    If you are still looking for an Esteem, I have one available. I left Metro for AT&T. My Esteem is in decent shape and I can provide pictures and more details if you are interested.

    PM or email me.

    I'd get one off the bay. Unless you find some one that cuts you a deal, everyone is gonna want top dollar cause they think their phone is better than everyone else.

    I got mine in February for 190. It was 3 weeks old when i got it and there wasn't a mark on it. I thought i was getting ripped off cause it was a new account. But i got lucky as hell.
    Me and biggie found one for pg on the bay, thanks to af donations, and it was like 183 or something. And i think it was in good shape.

    I'd go to the bay though ;)
