Default Broken vibrator

Please Login to Remove!

I recently dropped my 8700c at the bar (no, that was before I got drunk), but anyway the vibrator flywheel broke off and was bouncing away inside the case. That was no good because it kept shorting out the phone. So I took it apart and thought maybe I could swap the vibrator from an old 7290 I had kicking around, but they are different, and I haven't figured out yet how to remove the old one.

Does anyone have any ideas how to get me fixed up.

Thanks

try BlackBerry Repair Shop - A full line of RIM BlackBerry repair services and BlackBerry parts for all BlackBerry handheld devices

But a new/used 8700 would probably cost less.

For a second, I was wondering whether Bundy was my wife.

This post is bound to have one of the highest view counts EVER! Ha!

The only way it could have gotten funnier is if the Thread Title contained (Pics included)....

I never recommend "swapping" vibrators

If you haven't figured out how to remove the old vibrator, you certainly don't want to go stickin' a new one in there.
