    Blackberry story

    Advertisement



    One day in jan. I had a user come to me and he was frantic because he lost his blackberry. He didnt know where he lost it but he thought it fell off his waist when he was getting out of his car. I figured the phone would have water damage and probably been hit by a snow plow but with our search efforts we had no luck finding the device. So we got him a new one loaded him up to the BES and all was but forgotten about that lost blackberry untill yesterday. Three months later after all the snow had melted and employee came to me and said he found a blackberry on the side of the parking lot near the fence. Come to find out it was the blackberry that was lost earlier. So I decided to put a charged battery in it to see if it would turn on. Come to my surprise the balckberry turn on booted up and everything on it works like a million bucks. I took the device apart to clean it and when I took the faceplate of there were two spiders living in it. It about scared me senceless! thats something you wouldnt expect. lol just thought I share

    LOL, that's awesome it was found, even funnier it was housing some inhabitants! I probably would have screamed like a school girl. I hate spiders.

    I guess it I could see it happening after reading all the stories of Blackberrys going swimming and then being recovered. My guess is that its saving grace was since it wasn't powered on while wet that saved it. It had time to dry out and Voila!! That is cool though I would have never believed it.

    @moto: Jake, I just had a vision of you cruising your mower hitting a spider web and screaming like a girl as you fly off the back.

    Awesome! What model is it? The spiders would have freaked me out, probably would have killed the berry in the process of squishing the spiders
