Default Handset Problems

Please Login to Remove!

Last year after a successful POC (proof of concept) I authorized the deployment of a blackberry solution in my environment and proceeded to procure approximately 30 handsets (Bold 9000s and Curve 8900s). Shortly thereafter we started having problems with handsets, particularly Bold 9000. In a space of 6 months we had to send in no less than 5 handsets that simply stopped working, the first being within 2 weeks of delivery. Blackberry has refused to repair any of the handsets citing 'liquid damage'. I have sworn affidavits from users that none of these handsets ever came close to water. Last week my bold 9000 packed up and will not even switch on and I expect a response that say 'liquid damage'. I am now considering pulling the plug on the entire blackberry solution unless something Blackberry comes to the party. Anyone with similar experience and suggestion how to deal with this nightmare.

Well, BBs and water do not mix. Having it in a high humidity environment can do harm. Even having it in a bathroom while you are taking a shower can cause it.

Who is providing the "liquid damage" response? Have you checked the water damage indicator?

How do I check the indicator? The liquid damage response came from the Blackberry repair centre.
