    update 8/12/09: gave the bold to a repair store and they said there is nothing they can do. they tried replacing the lcd, but nothing works to get the phone to power up. they say its probably the motherboard. how much can i sell it for as a parts phone?

    so im washing my car.

    i had the bold in my pocket, still inside the holster, but in my pocket because i didnt want it to get wet. i finish the car and cant find my phone. hours later i find it under one of my car tires

    yes, i drove over it. its dead, no power, nada

    im on craigslist right now looking to spend no more than $300

    im using my old pearl because my curve needs a new trackball

    my friends dont see the big deal because i have other bberries, but i know you guys know how i feel

    6 emails on craigslist offering cash in hand and no responses after an hour of waiting.

    update 6/30/09: a guy in tracy, ca says we can meet up. he selling for 325 and it looks great. i get off work and hes taking forever to call me back. while waiting i got into the att store to see if i can get hooked up. cant upgrade until sept 09. but i have another line for my pc card. i had this card since 06. never needed to upgrade, cause its always been 3g. dude says i can extend the contract with the pc card line and used my upgrade to get the bold. i dont have to go from a data plan to blackberry plan. PERFECT 340 out the door brand new, insured!!!. dude in the att store was watching tv on his bold with the slingbox hook up. maybe im late, but it was sick!!

    here are the pics of the of the broken bold and new bold. im looking to see if i can get the broken bold repaired. the new bold is on the left. you can see the tire marks on the holster

    Is 3G important to you?

    I have both and I prefer the Bold due to 3g and its keyboard. The 8900 is amazing if you can manage with a slightly smaller keyboard and lack of 3g

    I'm so sorry to hear that. If 3G is important to you, then the Bold is your only choice. If you don't care for 3G, the 8900 is a great phone too. Personally I prefer the Bold, not only for the 3G, but I prefer the keyboard on the Bold over the 8900. I hope you find a replacement soon.

    Pull the trackball out of the Pearl and put it in the Curve! EXTREMELY easy to swap.

    If the Bold fell out of your pocket already, then you definitely don't need a smaller phone.

    Hey craigslist isn't a bad choice. I bought mine from craigs list and I got what I paid for. 300 with everything including car charger...I saw a few other posts selling for less than 300. Good luck with that ! ! Plus with craigs list u can meet with the person selling it and check out the phone first before buying ! Oh, and sorry to hear u ran your phone over... ! !
