    Need Ideas...Going To Try And Kill An 8703 with OTTERBOX.

    Advertisement



    ATTEMPT TO KILL AN OTTERBOX PROTECTED 8703 BlackBerry...


    We have an Otterbox for the 87XX series BB's in our office that has been sitting around collecting dust for sometime now.

    So we have come up with the idea that we are going to test it's durability and need some ideas.

    This afternoon, we are going to video tape a working 8703 BB from Sprint loaded into an Otterbox, and torture it.

    Some of the ideas we already have are:
    1. Running it over slowly with truck
    2. Running it over at 35mph with a truck
    3. Submerging it in water
    4. Going to try and convince the UPS guy to run it over with the UPS truck.

    So, any ideas of some more "testing" that we can do is encouraged...What ideas do you have?

    Keep in mind, that shock vibrations can still kill a phone, so we may not try and throw it against a wall or drop it from the roof onto the parking lot...Maybe...If we do that, we may do it with a dead 87 unit.

    So let's hear your ideas. We are planning to start this in about 4 hours, so we are looking for ideas until then.

    Good ideas...Keep 'em coming.

    May have to do a 2 or 3 part video, as I think the limit on YouTube is 10 minutes isn't it?

    Shut it Nick.

    Otterbox doesn't protect against OS FUBARS.

    Plus, if RIM would just make me CEO, then I wouldn't have to be trying to manipulate the OS's to do what I want them to do. =-)

    Your outta luck then.

    New idea, Let Stacey or Toddboy use it. I hear they can really jack up a BB. Oh and how about a plunge in the toilet or dip it in a pint of beer.

    I was just about to say, let one of those two have it. Todd can run it over with his SUV, and Stacey can drop it in yellow water!

    Throw it out of an airplane, shoot it with a nailgun, steamroller it...
    Too extreme?

    Maybe a little. =-)

    We thought about shooting it with a shotgun, but that may be a little too extreme and don't want to go to jail for firing a gun inside city limits.

    Currently putting back together 2-8703's right now that are FUBARED so that in the tests such as running it over with a car and whatnot, we have video of an unprotected one and a protected one.

    This could be fun.
