    So far I have read some really good examples on why my wife doesn't get to play with the berry. I have a pretty good one:

    Last year I had an experiance similiar to N8's. I fumbled my 7105t and tried to hackey sack the berry back up to me in a parking lot but it too went straight...


    ...Into the open top of a passing convertable Sebring.

    I never saw it again.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~dropped my 8700g a couple of times with the holster. Its still in great condition few scratches from here and there but hey, there's no way I can keep it from being perfect.

    Re: The "Battered Berries" Thread

    Wow these are funny. I have the basic bounce of the Parking lot stories with minor scratches. However, I cracked the housing of my first 8700 while I was on business in Northern Maine in the middle of winter. I was on call for the CT Dept of a hospital. My pager alerts me to being needed for an exam, so I grab BB, that was in mint condition. I go do the exam, as I get in the car I pull the BB out of my pocket and about needed the CCU or Code team. I saw an unexplainable scratch (at the time I thought cracked LCD) that goes up entire BB logo down to cingular logo. Still dont know how it got there, no trauma to the device to explain it. I blame the extreme change in temp from inside to outside and back in etc and possibly a bump into something with my pocket.

    Re: The "Battered Berries" Thread

    after dropping mine about 30 ta 40 times with nothing but minor scraches not to mention paint and autobody filler just got a new one because my charger port went up its nice and clean which makes me miss my old one.

It was raining and we both got drenched while I recovered my BB from under the pick-up. I was really embarassed about that.

    When we got back to her house I took the time to look at my BB. I was really upset as my 8700c now has big gashes in the housing on three of the corners and the chrome border around the screen has some nicks in it too. Luckily it did not get that wet and works ok. I now have a Sprint 8703e and the Seidio body skin and skinned holster to protect it. I also have the Total Equip. Protection from Sprint just in case. Trust me, the $6.00 per month is worth the peace of mind.

    trust me i learned the hard way $6.00 a month more then worth it

    We've had a BlackBerry which lost a battle with a Police Dog. Not a lot left of the holster and a nice set of puncture marks on the screen.

    Several devices which have come back in a biohazard bag after being dropped into toilets.

    Re: The "Battered Berries" Thread

    my 7520 went tumbling down the stairs. I was picking up my daughter and as i went to give her a kiss she kciked my blackberry and it went down 3 flights of stairs. (I am not kidding) My heart dropped and knew for sure that it was done. NOPE!!!!! Picked it up but the batter back in and still works like a champ. I put my daughter up for adobtion to make sure it never happened again. <--Just kidding... she is my world and if I had to by a new one she would of blayed with the old one. She loves My wife and I's blackberry.
