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

The spec your referencing is generaly for the electronic components in consumer devices. Yes it is a good standard but the OP indicated he just touched the BB and received a discharge. I think it is possible to get a static shock from the device but the phone should not be damaged.

Beyond getting struck with lightning or sticking your finger in an electric socket while texting and sitting in a pool his phone should be ok
