    Was asked to repair a blackberry, then gifted with it

    Advertisement



    Hello all. I normally wouldn't introduce myself on a forum like this but after registering it suggested I do so, so here I am! :P

    I work at a helpdesk supporting Blackberry devices and have for around 20 months now. I was kind of joking around with my boss last week and asked "so when am I getting my Blackberry?" and he laughed, dug around in his office, and found an 8703e and told me I could use it if I could figure out how to fix the backlight (broken, can't see the screen unless it's black text on a white background)

    So last night I cracked it open, pulled out the LCD, and then looked around Ebay and found some replacement LCD's for $40 and very nearly bought one but decided to put it off a bit.

    Then today at work I realized that we might have some broken 8703e's sitting in limbo waiting to go in the trash for various other reasons. I took a walk, asked around, and very quickly found myself in possession of an 8703e in perfect condition except something inside it did not work (I didn't ask for details)

    I cracked it open, pulled out the LCD and swapped cases (because the broken one I got was clearly dropped so the case and screen were scuffed up) and now I have a Blackberry 8703e that looks brand spanking new. The LCD screen still has the protective plastic sheet on top.

    I let my boss know that I managed to fix it and he said since I did the work to fix it, it's now mine. They're even going to pay for all of the data and part of the voice plan. Tomorrow or the next day I should be up and running. I look forward to standing in line at Subway with a bunch of hot female strangers when my Star Trek fight music ringtone starts playing.

    While I'm glad it's an 8703 and not one of the old crappy 7000 series phones I was expecting to eventually get, I still wish it was a broken 8830 he handed to me.

    Haha, welcome to the stacks! Believe it or not that's almost how I got my first Berry too. I ended up fixing a customers 7250 and then in the same week I converted him to Telus Mike system and he handed me his 7250 and said here you go! Lol, you'll find tons of useful information on this site, and if you need some good ole' Canadian help feel free to pin or PM me.

    Cheers!
