Default Goin to baghdad in 3 weeks and want my phone(well the music part) to work :(

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, im goin to baghdad in 3 weeks and before i leave the states, i wanna try and see if i cant get my blackberry curve 8830 fixed. If not i can just get an mp3 player. But the trackball cover(the little silver cover that covers and holds the trackball on) has 2 little inserts that goes down into the blackberry to lock it onto the blackberry. Well the prongs kinda broke so i was wondering if there was any solution to this problem :( I use sprint as a carrier if that makes any difference.. if i cant get this to work, then ill probably just send my blackberry home so its there for me when i return and then buy an mp3 player.. music is goin 2 be important for me while im deployed hehe. I'm in the army by the way

One of my Buddy's has an 8830, I believe it is. He is in Baghdad also and he uses BlackBerry Messenger to talk to allot of use. Maybe worth getting a different phone, of course your Bill will go up...

Hey thank JC, yes we can sell you the ring only if you would like. Considering you are going over seas to "protect the free world" I figure its the least I can do, break up the trackball/ring set. Let ke know if you are interested via PM. Thanks and good luck, God bless you
