BlackBerry vs. Lawnmower

This one comes to us from blackberryboyz, and the photo pretty much speaks for itself. Apparently a lawn tech in Florida had a little mishap with his device. It fell from his belt and landed in the path of a moving lawnmower ... and that was that. I cringe just thinking about the crrrruuunnnccch sound it made as this poor BlackBerry was chopped to bits. Some of these stories end well with the owners being able to salvage the device, but lets just say this time it was a good thing he had insurance. Thankfully we don't see too many of these "mishaps".

Whaaahahahahaha. Too funny.

It still looks better than most of what Blackberry has to offer.

I keed I keed. :)

AJFSTORM

LOL! I'm waiting for it to come out in white.

giantvegenetics

I call shenanigans... this damage didn't come from a lawnmower. I demand a mythbusters style investigation. This is BS.

diegonei

I'm game. Give me your device and I'll do the testing.

rleuner

This unfortunate blackberry cannot return to the field as a messed up rebuild.

alextop30

I think you can still put it back together. nothing little superglue will not fix :)

vabbgeek

Lmao..u sound like my mom!! Super glue and duct tape!!

Bla1ze

time for an upgrade anyways, lol.

dcorx

Wow, that's heartbreaking

spiraleze

That left a mark, On the lawnmower blade. lol

virtualvenom

I have a couple of pics of a 8350i that got ran over by a police car. Not too much damage and it still worked!

Blade_27

It's unfortunate no app could have prevented this.

neoman1314

sure there's an app for that ;D

Ryoohk

i hope they back up there data lol

AirSTEPH

I feel sorry for the guy,but hey...its only an 8350i. No big deal there.

grimball

So much carnage! You should have a parental warning. I'll have nightmares tonight.

Duck tape will fix that one right up. Also thanks for the reminded to back up my phone today.

red72

Why would you show this? It's a good thing I saw this @ 4pm instead of right before I go to bed. Now I have time to deny that I saw this.

chewie1988

I saw it listed before, but duct tape fixes everything

ssybert

oh why did i look? that makes me sad!

sgorman18

That does not look pretty.. The worse thats happened to mine is it took a little swim in about 9ft of water. It was down there for a while but Im happy to say it survived and is still kicking. I learned that day that although a Blackberry can do just about anything, swimming is not one of them.

We can rebuild it. We have the technology. Trouble is, it's not worth it. :P

chuckh0308

Looks like the battery door is still good...lol!

RIP!

Trovo05

a like new phone from Verizon?!?! I'm sure that will be sent out soon! lol

Pathtek4

Not impressed...Ran over mine last summer with the lawnmower when I hit my holster on the fence and backed over it. Battery was smoking and I initially thought I ran over a neighbors toy truck! Thank God for insurance, lol!

sourkevin

why does this look like 2 curves bit the dust, and not just one?

Saukrateaz

it does look like there's a little more to this pile than just 1 device. Looks like theres 2 boards there...?

edit: I noticed its 1 board split in the center....

xs11e

My 9630 was mistaken for a chew toy by the monster pitbull/chow mix. It's badly scratched up but it works perfectly. I ordered a replacement case (white, I think they look sharp!) and a new screen.

Screen came, still waiting for the case....

fastattack1095

Wow, but looks like he was about ready for an upgrade anyway!

Uncle Rico

Put it in a bowl of rice over night :)

jenalyn

i'm going to have nightmares about this

It's a Blended Blackberry smoothie.

I thought it was an ad for smartgaurds new remote detonation if your berry is lost or stolen.

bigwill5150

I find the neighbors consumer electronics tend to bang loud and harsh until they seperate. The shrapnel sounds a bit like hitting loose gravel. Their pets sound more like hollow thumps. Espcially Chihuahas.

KPower667

Now THAT is a CRACKberry!! RIP Little Buddy...Thinking I should get insurance now...Damn..ya never know when your bb might die.. At least I backup my device every week. :D

ResidentialRestoration

Looks like a good argument for Smrtguard

jetman1287

That would survive things like this? Those pictures were always interesting

Jimberry Storm

With all the snow in my area (Philadelphia suburb) I was using my storm to listen to music while I worked, and the same thing happened but with different results. I saw my storm fly through the air and land deep in a snow drift on my front lawn, thought the worst and tossed it in the door and went about my business. Hours latter I was inside and my wife had dried my phone and it works just fine.

r7mr7m

Looks much bigger all torn up.

May that blackberry rest in sweet peace.
Regards, Kenny.

gghostrrider

I'll bet there are at least 3 posts asking about buying parts!

Cigar-Junkie

If the battery door fits tight I would sell the baby on Ebay! Simm Card too!

Jaredius

Just put a little butter on it.

SC0TT

That dude needs a text to donate relief fund to get him back up and running
