    Advertisement



    this stinks, because i LIVE by my BB, but the worst that could happen, has happened. anyone have a 7100i they could loan ? will pay to ship. i've called the stores in the area and they dont' have loaners.

    this is not meant to break any IS rules, so please forgive if this irritates you.

    thanks, tomdick. i appreciate that.

    BUT GUESS WHAT??!!! IT"S ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!

    my recipie? oven at 175 but turn it off befoire it gets to 120, then place it on it's side on a pizza stone that was already in during the heating on a napkin and let sit while you shower.

    then let it sit for about an hour in the florida sun on the dashboard face down.

    all above without sim or batt or batt cover. amazing.

    dang it, i love being a geek.

    thank you for the offer, DCook... we will see if it holds up! so far so good, but there is some moisture in the screen. here's hoping!

    it was certainly an adventure.

    yeah. mine went in the jacuzzi. not even a good story. i was just putting the cover back on and i was on the phone, it slipped out of my hand, slid across the entire cover, and dropped in. apparently, the bromine didn't have any ill affects, lol! still feel like a moron though!
