Default 8130 Died! Help!

just posted this on the crackberry site, figured it couldnt hurt to post here



a few days ago, my bb pearl 8130 just died out of nowhere. i wasnt doing anything to it. i was walking with it in my pocket. it was working jsut fine, had 2 bars of battery and had jsut gotten a text message. less than 2 minutes after heard i recieved a text, i went to look at it at the screen was blank, like it usually is when my keypad is locked. i went to unlock it but it was off, ithought maybe i hit the power button by accident while it was in my pocket so i hit the power button again to bring it out of sleep mode or whatever that is and it did nothing. i held it down to turn the phone on as if it were totally off and again, nothing. i pulled the battery and nothing. plugged it in and nothing. pulled the batt a few more times and NOTHING. i dont understand what happened if i had dropped it or soemthing, got it wet, i'd understand if it died. but NOPE. it was just sitting in my pocket like every day since i got it a year ago.

so, of course, i didnt back up my contacts and whatnot cuz i'm an ***** (wow it censored id.iot) . i tried plugging it into my comp to hopefully get the desktop manager to read it and backup my stuff, but no. *sighs* so now...i can bring it to verizon to have them just say get a new phone, since my warranty expired on dec 21st...it died on the 31st. i asked a guy at a place where they jsut sell the phones, not fix them, if he knew if there was any way to pull my info off it, he said no. i havent gotten to the service place since the closest one is half an hour away >_<

does anyone have any idea how i can get my phone back? i saw the post about reloading the os through c prompt on a dead bb, but that erases all data....if i cant fix my phone, anyone know how i can get my numbers? or, if no one has that, anyone know the inner guts of the phone so i can buy a new one and take the memory chip off my old one and solder it into the new one? lol. i'm desperate here, people. help me with my crackberry addiction!!
