    any ideas? a cruel twist of fate

    Advertisement



    I had a misfortune yesterday...
    I was getting out of the car, and even had my BB in my hand! Somehow, though, I lost my grip and it took a little 2 foot fall. It now has a little spidet crack in the plastic shield for the actial LCD. I was just wondering, does anyone know how costly those are to repair or replace?

    The sad thing about this tale is, I was GOING to, and DID, buy a case for my BB TODAY!

    www.promobility.com sells the housing and also www.bbrepairshop.com go to the discount forums we have pinstacker only discounts there for bbrepairshop.

    My 8700g broke.. yup the LCD didn't crack but the plastic face did. It did well thought it was a SUPER HARD hit!

    Good luck. There a post around with scratch removal for the face.

    http://www.promobility.net/html/blackberryparts.shtml is your best bet, at last check they have stock on 8700c/r housing and batt doors. Don't wait as they go fast!

    Ouch!! Do you have insurance from your current provider because RIM will probably charge you at least $150 to repair that. They charge you a repair cost plus typically an hourly rate of about $75 per hour.

    If you don't, add it and take it in to get repaired in a few days

    Its like raaaaiiiiinnnnnn, on your wedding day,
    Dropping your Blackberry,
    On the way to buy a case"
