    Passport fell accidentally, hit the floor right on the DAMN volume UP button!!

    This is giving me lots of problems from playing music to trying to take pics, phone slowing down etc...

    Tried pulling out with pliers, not enough space to grab.

    Can this be fixed somehow? Does BlackBerry offer repair services? I bought this on shopblackberry.com.

    Going nuts, even thinking about getting the AT&T passport on a NEXT plan and trying to sell this one if I can't fix it...

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Talk about an unlucky drop!

    I would send it back for repair or try a local phone repair shop.

    Wouldn't be covered under warranty though.

    OK so tried to get it fixed at a cellphone repair shop but they told me they would have to order the button part and were not sure if any internals were damaged so they wouldn't guarantee the job.

    I ended up getting an AT&T Passport today on the NEXT plan, will now either try opening up and fixing myself or selling it low at ebay or CB.... :s I'll post about selling at the appropriate forum if I decide. PM me if interested.

    AT&T phone is thicker on the edges but holding and typing on it actually feels better, don't feel that pointy edge against my fingers. So far so good.

    Did get some flickering on the file manager app, everything else smooth.

    Depending on what "low price" is I'll take it. Been wanting to see this fantastic PP screen anyway...
