Dropped BlackBerry

Just how far would you go to get your BlackBerry back? At times many of us have left them behind in a cab or at a restaurant, or maybe even dropped it in the toilet. But has it ever been dropped somewhere that made you think twice about trying to get it back?

Maybe 16-year-old Ella Birchenough should have thought about it a bit more after she dropped her BlackBerry in a storm drain. She wanted it back so badly that she went in after it, only to get stuck in the drain herself.

We're curious to know how many of you have been in a similar situation where you've lost your phone and gone to extreme lengths to get it back. Maybe you lost it in the lion cage at the zoo, or maybe it slipped out into a urinal in a public bathroom. Whatever the case may be — hit up the comments and let us know what extreme scenarios you've gone through to get your BlackBerry back.

Crazy indeed but I'd do it too! Love it that much. And for the doubters who are saying its an iPhone? No way! See below;

Wasn't she supposed to go into the storm drain head first?

You think that's how a prosumer would solve the problem... oh wait.

Here goes my story:

Back in September my white BlackBerry Bold 9900 went down a storm drain while I was waiting for the bus on my way back home.
I was on a call and had it hanging between head and shoulder while trying to tie my shoe laces. You can picture the scene.
All of the sudden it got loose, I was shocked, stumped, speechless. I saw it all in slow motion and couldn't anything.
For a few seconds it thought it was gone for good and then, ring ring, incoming call. The person I was talking to called me back, and I could hear it right down there.
I can't describe the frustration for knowing it's right freaking there and you can't do crap.
I took the bus home, thinking of that moment over and over again. Knowing it was in a perfect condition (I guessed).
So I got home, told my girlfriend all about it and she made me come back for it. It was 3 to 4 hours past the incident and she could still BBM me and got the "d". So we went back for it! I grabbed a long pair of cooking tweezers my girlfriend gave me, an old pair of sheets and in no time I was McGivering my phone out of the storm drain.
Long story short, after doing my greatest cirque do soleil performance I got it out of there. Yes, it was a little wet and muddy, but still working :)

I had it repaired by a tech friend and it lasted for a good couple months, now it's in the memories drawer. My best phone ever...

I wish I had a picture of me down on the floor with my left arm fully in the storm drain, it was a funny thing to see.

So I guess we will all go far and beyond for our beloved BlackBerries...

Hope it was a nice story to read!

Go BlackBerry!

Blackberry should comp her a new phone for the publicity. Some stories say it was an iPhone, one I've found says it was a Blackberry. Most don't identify the phone (maybe as a good news organizations they couldn't verify the facts yet and didn't want to get it wrong.) Unless we can verify it, we should refrain from saying it was a Blackberry too, otherwise it just trashes our credibility and makes us look silly.

BBZ10wannabe

The National Post. posted a correction. At least there's an upside..

An earlier version of this story reported that Ella-Anne had dropped a BlackBerry. UK reports have since issued a correction stating that Ella-Anne had in fact dropped an iPhone but is now using a BlackBerry.

I dropped my Q10 walking down the subway stairs. Thankfully it landed on the platform, none the worse for the wear. Had it landed on the tracks, I would've called the police or a station agent. Not worth it to risk my life over a phone. We have a real issue here in NYC with that. People jumping on to the subway tracks to retrieve phones and Lord knows what else. Sometimes with deadly consequences.

Lost my blackberry storm 9530 in a foundation crib while pouring the concrete. Had an otter box so I jumped in up to my waist in wet cement to get it back. Took the case off back when the defender was awesome wiped it down with a damp cloth and used it til I got the storm 2. There was no way I was leaving it in there knowing that it was still fully functional and pretty much brand new at the time

I was standing my the door of a train and as a man existed, he bumped my BlackBerry out of my hands , bounced off the floor and fell between the train car and the platform a full meter and a half down. I immediately jumped off the train and waited for it to depart. As it did, I listened for the "crunch" sounds but heard none and to my surprise, there was my 9900 unscathed. I jumped off the platform onto the rails, grabbed my beloved BlackBerry and hooped back up just in time to hear the train security come over the loud speaker to scold me :)

I work at a grain elevator. A very large one with dozens of 60-120ft silos along with dozens of conveyor belts and shoots. Welp, I was leaning into one of these shoots with my blackberry in my breast pocket and leaned to far. My blackberry slid out of my pocket down a dusty 20 foot shoot. I immediately knew it was gone. Immediately knew there was no hope. I was so mad at myself for not realizing it would slide out of my pocket. My co-worker goes down to the base of the shoot to investigate anyway and what do ya know? This shoot unlike any other in the plant had an access panel at the bottom. He opened it up and started digging mound of dust out until he finally found the my phone. It was caked with dust. I cleaned it off and all was well.

A local BlackBerry representative should find out if she's a touchscreener or a keyboardist, then send her the appropriate phone (Z30 or Q10) free and compliments of BlackBerry for being such a devoted user. It would make positive publicity and at the same time show great customer service.

I dropped my torch when getting up to go at a Leafs game in November. Did not realize this until in my colleague's car at the Esplanade (thankful that we drove down rather than subway from Yorkdale).

As I had my work Bold with me, I quickly went to BlackBerry Protect, logged in with my BBID, zoomed in on the gps, and there it was, North East corner of the ACC! This was fantastic! I knew I did not have to try and retrace any steps. I was then able to lockdt and set a custom message to call my work bold if found. My colleague dropped me off at one of the doors, where I knocked and showed the security guard the protect screen showing the satellite view and my phone glowing inside the building. They were more than willing to walk me back to the seat, and sure enough, there it was on the floor under my chair with the lock screen message on. Safe, secure and back in my hands!

Always set up your BlackBerry Protect folks. It is the best feature to protect your phone from theft and loss.

Cheers!

My favourite (and most disgusting) experience with a lost phone occurred during the tailgating portion in advance of a Bills' game in Buffalo. Some wasted girl dropped her phone in the portable toilet and went to great lengths to retrieve that device. It was hilarious to watch from a distance as she made her boyfriend use the tongs from the barbecue in the rescue effort.

I'd like to hope that this ended the day's cooking for them, but I couldn't stand to check. My only hope is that her friends called her repeatedly to see how many times she held that blue/brown/yellow handset to her face.

I lost my blackberry bold in 2012. Honestly, I was confident that I was going to see it because I had blackberry protect on it. However I was wrong. The black berry protect doesn't work when you switch sim cards. I did a remote lock immediately I lost the phone,but the phone was unlocked and is now in use by another user. It's so painful that blackberry protect is a crap....

My phone was actually stolen from my socks while is was in surgery for removal of my cancerous thyroid. So anyway dig this, the hospital says don't bring any valuables, ( we're not responsible if it's stolen) (which most of us know is horse poppy) but as I went into the surgery room I had taken my socks off and placed my phone in my socks, then wrapped my socks in my boxer shorts, which were then rolled into my sweats and t-shirt. Pretty well hidden.(if all my clothes came up missing I probably not be writing about this) Anyway after surgery I was only to be in the hospital about 23 hours and after the thyroid surgery I was not able to speak very well so I needed my phone to text family members. I asked for my personal belongings and like a kid opening a present at Christmas, I unwrapped my rolled up clothes package like a Fein and vla-la the phone was missing. Imagine that. After numerous contact with the hospital and security staff the phone became M.I.A. Can't imagine they can't pull video of it since pre-op is so closely monitored, anyway fast-forward to present day. I contacted several people at certain companies and you know the stories we won' t replace your missing device because it was stolen.how dare you ask such a thing, what a cooperate response...... ( I am under a confidentiality agreement so I have to be vague) but I did contact a company (to be nameless) and left a half-hearted plea and letter and just a letter to vent and let everyone know about the theft and to protect themselves. I got a company's heart and someone who felt my anguish. As I felt in the beginning that someone, somewhere has a heart and just because I was attacked and violated at the worst time in my life, (just the battle of fighting cancer has taken its toll on my mind, soul and financial situation) there was no way I could afford replacing my z30, I had actually traded my LG g2 for an unlocked version to use on my att account. Any way a company stepped forward and replaced my phone with a phone they had in stock an unlocked z10. What has this to do with this story, yeah my phone was lost and gone to phone heaven or Iran or Iraq or where ever it went and these are the extremes I had to go to to get my phone. It may not have been lost, or stuck in the particle sense but it was gone. Thank goodness for people out there that still see the human side of the world and the effect it actually had on me... Sometimes we think of how bad the world and its people can be, I mean literally stealing from a man that could have been on his death bed, we forget that there are still people in cooperate seats and head positions that actually care about their people... Thank BS. You guys are the best. And should anyone want to trade 2 beautiful z10's for a z30 just let me know.....

Years ago when I still had my blackberry pearl our whole city caught on fire (Ludowici GA). We had already evacuated when I realized my phone wasn't in my pocket and that I must have dropped it on the way out. Without even thinking I drove back past the firetruck and flames jumping the highway. I got my phone back but my hair and car interior smelled like smoke for weeks.
