Default Re: BlackBerry in its case and eletro-static discharge

An ESD will almost never cause problems in a device. While the voltage may be high, the current is very low. Think of a plane getting hit by lightening (a fairly common thing). The electronics are rarely affected.

IF ESD was an issue with consumer devices, people living in low humidity areas would be frying items on a regular basis.....
