    Not as tough as my other BB

    Advertisement



    I dropped the 8100 only to pick it back up and notice a shattered screen. All other functions work, but the screen is toast.

    I dropped all of my other BB devices from ladders, off the roof of my car and on and on without any problems. The 8100 suffered major damage falling from my pocket from a seated position.

    Ouch...Not surprising though...I noticed that about the pearl as soon as I got it...I have dropped it once and was expecting the same result...The 8700 has falled out of my pocket, dropped out of my hand and even flung 15 feet one time when I was opening the door to a gas station and it went flying out of my hands...I feel your pain...

    Did you have any sort of case on it? Skin? What sort of surface did it hit?

    That is why I use a wrist strap with my Pearl. Others may laugh, but all it takes is one mishap.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Ever wonder why the radios that cops & fireman use weight a ton? Not that they are totally damage-proof, but a lot of that weight comes into play with making them strong. Unfortunately, this is the kind of problem that will occur when you make things light and small.

    I've got a great idea for a third-party add-on: A little teeny parachute to slow the fall when dropped out of a pocket!
