    i'm back!!

    Advertisement



    Well, about two weeks ago I went swimming and forgot that my red pearl was still in my trunks. I also discovered that not only can the pearl not swim, but that the damn things won't breathe under water either. Of course having Cingular I had no insurance so I had to pull together the funds and got a new one today. I went with the black one this time and I am going to take some of the red pieces from my old one and use them on my new black one to make a new hybrid pearl. I will post some pics when I am done. Let me just say that I am glad to be back on the boards here and I have been going through bad crackberry withdrawls since I was without my pearl the last two weeks!!

    One of my co-workers has a black\white pearl. It looks good. I'm all about interracial breeding!

    buy a broken one on ebay or something. They're sold for parts all the time, super cheap too. usually batteries and casing is still good.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i knew what I had done as soon as I hit the water and nearly broke into tears over it. I got the idea of migrating the two after watching how to take one apart on youtube. At least I have an extra battery now since the water didn't kill it.

    What did you do with your old one? Can I buy it off you?

    EDIT: nevermind I got too excited and didn't read the rest of the post

    I saw that a while back... so you are saying i can be scuba diving in the clear water of cancun, and feel a vibrate on my hip, pull out my blackberry (still under water) and read a eMail from a pintack thread that I started and then respond to the eMail from pinstack and continue scuba diving....
