We're talking about a Blackberry phone here, not open heart surgery.

Either way, we're drifting off-topic. My suggestion to the OP stands: Tinker with your device. You're very unlikely to cause any damage that you couldn't get out of. In the end you'll understand more about your phone and be able to contribute that experience to others here.

Well, unless you are willing to provide free loaner phones, free tech support, free replacement handsets and reimburse people for any/all lost data YOU are irresponsible with your statement. Many people do not back up their data. That being said - what happens if the handset loses data that has a negative economic impact on the owner's employment/career? YOU gonna offset that economic loss?

It is shameful to encourage this behavior. YOU make a poor blanket statement without regard to possible consequences to the handset owner......so if you are offering to pay ALL of the associated costs - then say so........if not - then stop with the poor advice.

May I suggest you read my post with a modicum of comprehension? Making a blanket statement regarding the green light to "tinker" with a BB without regard to consequences (i.e. data loss) IS in fact irresponsible and a disservice to BB users. Perhaps if the "make sure you back up all your data" and/or "you MAY put your handset data at risk" disclaimers were posted - it would be a bit more fair to the average user.

How would you feel if a reader took this advice and then showed up to work on Monday with a BB that had lost the data it had - and the person who tinkered was fired? Would you still stand by that advice?

Irresponsible to say the least.......

I'm not even going to post what I was going to say since it will just help fan the flames. Either way, enjoy!

I know of a mortgage broker that was terminated for tinkering with a company issued handset........

If someone wants to roll the dice and tinker - go for it............pilots do not learn to fly by crashing real planes.........

Mike, I did read your post with a "modicum of comprehension". Thank you for the intended insult.

I just simply find your posts in this thread ironic, based on your signature.

Looks like Mike is no longer a registered user. I guess he couldn't get his way and doesn't want to play anymore
