Default The guy thought he bricked his phone

I always tell my friends that my BB can take it. "Sensitive electronics" yes but better built than most other phones. In "most" cases a hard restart or wiping the device and reinstalling the OS can repair the phone.

As far as the treatment of my phone it was a way of trying to get more people to see what a great phone it is and to buy one. The water and truck where not demonstrations but where accidents. The dropping was showing off, I don't do it anymore. I don't see too many razors or other phones for that matter that can take the ruff and tumble world the blackberry can. As to the topic I was just letting him know that he should come here for good advice to fix problems not a service center with a bench charge.
