Unhappy Dropped Berry

Please Login to Remove!

I did the stupid thing! Yesterday, my Berry was in its holster clipped to my pocket, I thought securely. However when I adjusted my shirt, it apparently caught under the clip and pushed the holster up, causing my poor Berry to fall to the pavement.

Fortunately, the holster was a thick Cellet, which I believe protected it somewhat.

The Berry did reboot itself right after the fall, but has been OK since.

What are the main problems I should watch out for?

Thanks.

If nothing has happened thus far you are probably fine (knock on wood). I think the most common drop hardware failure is the microphone not working (people can't hear you). I think your good!

Thanks.

Hopefully, the Otterbox will protect it from here on out.

Just be more careful with your phone next time.

Otterbox is great, and should offer you better protection for your BB.

it only rebooted once because the impact jarred the battery contact slightly.
