Default She's been smashed!

Yes..

I said it.

I'm ridiculously savage with my phones...
and after a long weekend... I've managed to do it again.

Slammed on the concrete at 5am.
My beautiful Pearl. She's only less than 2 weeks old :(

The decent thing.. is that I can still receive calls.

The back is gone, over half the keys don't work.. and I can't access any menus.

Fabulous.

I've already went ahead and purchased another one brand new..
but while I wait for my order to process and shipping..

Any ideas how on to possibly get this little beast working again?
If I completely flash the firmware using JavaLoader.. or take her apart and
mess with the buttons?

It's irritating receiving text messages and not being able to make calls LOL

was it wet outside by any chance, anyway some water went it?

you may be bale to disassemble it. possible that the keyboard connector fell out of place and could be just a matter of it not making a good contact.

Haha.

She's not THAT bad. Her screens not cracked.. but she's dented, scraped, missing her battery cover.

@mike_187, nah it wasn't wet or raining out at all, luckily.
But that sounds decent enough.. I know that my right sidekeys are all stuck in place and unusable. I'll try disassembling her tonight and seeing if I can check that connecter and pop the other buttons out.
Thanks!

PS - I'll post the sad pics after I get off of work tonight. haha
