    Just Dropped My Bold

    Advertisement



    Don't really know why I'm posting this-I guess I need some sympathy. I was out sitting in my car at break, on my Bold, as usual. Went to get out of my car and holster, missed my hoster, and watched in absolute horror as my Bold hit the rough parking lot-HARD! After watching it fall for 30 seconds (seemed like), it exploded-Sedio battery cover to the left, extened battery to the right, and Bold, face down on the concrete. If anyone needs me, I'll be at the St. Vincent's cardiac ward in Little Rock.

    Otterbox doesn't allow for the extended life battery.

    My son is stationed at Little Rock AFB. He's on his way to the hospital with bandaids and a bottle of Jack Daniels for you to ease your suffering. :-)

    Sorry to hear that, G! Hopefully the damage is minimal. Thought you had that thing wrapped in something?

    Can't do with the ext battery. Thanks boomer, I'll pass on the JD, but will take the band-aids (for my ego). Lol. Cherri, it has a really nasty little nick on the silver bezel by the mic; tell me will the emotional scar heal with time?lol.

    I feel for you! I had a similar experience with my 8320 back in January, except I did not notice I had "missed" the holster until I got to my hotel room and went to plug in to charge for the night....poor thing spent the night in the parking lot and I did not find it until the next morning, some good Samaritan had turned it in to the front desk...

    Cherri, does the bezel come with the screwdriver(s) that I will need or do I purchase them seperatel. Also, in the reviews, a mesh screen was mentioned, what is that and do I need to buy a new one? Thanks. ~via smartphone mobile.pinstack.com~
