    Another 8900 Upgrade....

    Advertisement



    I performed an unexpected migration to the 8900 yesterday. I didn’t consider this change until now because my 8310 has been working perfectly. I was in and out of the cab of my truck yesterday while backing up a trailer and unhooking it in the back end of our property—lots of dirt, trees, weeds and undergrowth. Then I turned the truck around and headed back up to the house. It was then that I experienced that panicky feeling……you know……when your phone isn’t in your holster and it should be. Naturally, I thought it was between the seats……I’ve found it there many times. Nope……grabbed Lola’s phone and kept calling my number…….listening for that definitive ring tone……now the panic is really beginning to grab me.

    Walked upstairs and downstairs calling and calling……going crazy now……trying to recall if I changed the profile back from quiet to normal this morning……yep……I know I did that. Adrenalin is kicking in now….I’m sure it has to be somewhere on the property, in the truck or house. After 45 minutes of back-tracking…..I finally found it……you can’t imagine the relief I felt until I saw the imprint of my Michelin tire on the back of my 8310.

    I apparently ran over it. I turned it over and saw the dreaded white screen of death……did a battery pull and blew out the dirt and……nothing…..oh well…..then decided to try alt/r-shift/del…..and to my surprise…..it worked. So, I plugged it in and did a back-up and that worked. My previous backup was only two weeks ago so I was pretty good there but, I did have a lot of activity to my address book and calendar recently. Went to my local ATT store and purchased the 8900…..restored the data and put it in my previous holster. It immediately fell out…..I looked at the elastic, for the first time, that connects the front and back of the holster…..sloppy! I actually had room for two Curves in there…..found my back-up holster that I purchased on the Internet…..tight…..in fact, when in the new holster and held upside down with the flap open……it was secure and didn’t fall out. I believe the holster was part of the problem……the other part was me not taking the BB out of the holster when I got in the truck as I usually do. You may want to check your leather BB holster to see that the elastic is tight and holds your BB securely.

    Wow, I think if I ran my 8900 over, I'd shutdown for a day or so. I can see that call to work, "Hey boss, I can't come in today. I, uh, I ran my BlackBerry over..::sob::..and I need some bereavement time."

    I agree Glenn...no more close encounters of the 4th kind.

    Still getting used to this 8900.....there are a few subtle differences betwee this and my 8310 but on balance......I kind of like it.....
