BlackBerry Tour 9630 Gets Torn Down (and put back together) on Video

By Kevin Michaluk on 20 Jul 2009 09:36 am EDT

I consider it sacriligious but I guess there's no better way to guarantee your video gets posted around the web than to tear apart and put back together a new smartphone. Seriously, how could somebody not want to see this?! This time around it looks like the folks at phonewreck.com got beat to the punch by gsmphone-unlocking.com in the race to tear down the BlackBerry Tour. CrackBerry Addicts will want to watch the 5m39s video in its entirety, but be sure to hit the mute button before your ears start to bleed.

wow they make it seem so easy lollol


OK, dumb question for you engineer types out there. Is there any way to tell from watching this video if the 9630 is WiFi "ready"? Just wondering if somebody smarter than me can tell by looking at the motherboard once it's torn down?


Your welcome Kevin! I was the one who posted this up in the forums haha. The music is a bit cheesy but it wonderful how the guy teaches you how to take it apart.


what the name of this song? its lol idk coool lol


and all I wanted was to figure out how to take the battery out


What the hell is he doing to that phone?


You're right. I felt like I was an intense action movie. The music did really start to get annoying haha...


I like how the back on that Tour is all glossy. The one on the VZW 9630 is only glossy in the center


First time I ever saw a BB taken apart. Loved the music.


AWESOME video which almost made me want to pull mine apart. Prolly not such a great idea to record and publish the bar codes on the back of an id card though.
