this seems like a painful method, i might get hit by said car attempting to let the car hit the bb and what if they manuver to avoid said bb? or if i give them a flat? while they travel at a high rate of speed?

Speed should be 30MPH+, and there is some risk involved. YMMV

We'll just get parts for you on eBay and solder you back together.

What are they putting in the water around here, lately?

This thread and the one(s) about replacing the trackball LED are legendary... my side hurts from laughing and my monitor has gotten several baths...

Ok guys a little update I put my Blackberry with all parts disassembled in the hydrocholric acid which I took from my chemistry lab room.

However there seems to be a big problem as many of the pieces corroded it seems and it doesn't turn on. Furthermore I hear odd rattling noises coming form my phone. I am afraid to get it warrantied or whatever and am currently scouring the internet for tips to get this thing working.

I was skeptical of this method to start and now I am so angry with myself.
