    +DON'T bring your pearl into bathroom while showering...

    Advertisement



    this is real bad...
    if you take a hot shower the air fills with steam
    which can find its way inside your pearl.

    i have seen a few recent post from new users in regards to this

    the water from the air can cause damage to your BB
    and it will void the warranty because it is
    considered WATER DAMAGE

    yee haveth been warneth
    arghhhh me matey i got scurvey

    Hopefully this falls under the same type of advice as "take the battery cover off before drilling the holes for better sound"!

    Seriously though, hopefully people are careful not to let their addiction put the Pearl in harms way

    That would apply to any BlackBerry and not just the Pearl. It is torture not having having it in your hand or even or on your person even for that short amount of time !

    Re: +DON'T bring your pearl into bathroom while showering...

    um, no offense peoples but are you telling me that you can't leave your Pearl LONG enough to even take a shower?????!?!?!?! That seems kind of....um....sad?

    Do ya'll have to feel THAT important or something? Not like you could actually be USING the thing while taking a shower, so why bring it in the bathroom at all?

    Help me understand now.......can't you put the phone outside the bathroom while your doing your "business"?

    And I always thought that electronics in the bathroom was an obvious thing of something NOT to do.....but...whatever.

    Ya'll will keep BB in business! BEcause that kind of damage is not under warranty, so that's how they (t-mobile-ATT- etc) will keep on making their money!

    Sorry...lol

    I always have my phone in the restroom when I'm showering. It's not an addiction, I just don't like missing calls. I've done it with my Nextel phones, and do it now with my BB.

    Re: +DON'T bring your pearl into bathroom while showering...

    i'm just saying having a cell phone in the bathroom while showering is bad due to excessive moisture in the air which can stupify your phone.

    and yes i think using your BB as "reading material" for is fine when using the bathroom.
    well anyway, i think its great cause i can read the news, or email, or have a friggin' soundtrack if i like while i do my business on the can.
