Just found a relic!

Well sorta... I thought I threw this out, but while cleaning I found this under a couch! My old blackberry!

Pretty destroyed, but turned on to my surprise! This thing survived 2 years with my sister until I bought it for $5. Then it had 8 months with me. As you can see it has been through hell. The screen is popping off the frame! I'd love to see a modern phone (meaning from the past 6 months) survive this damage

I'm gonna try to use this for a few days to see if I can get by! I hope it turns on again...

I wish I can get a complete case to install, this one is falling apart!

All you need is duct tape, paper clips, superglue and zipties.

Nice find btw. You should try and repair it before RIM goes out of business and you won't be able to get parts.

Problem is finding parts.. I'd love to Change the color. Never was a fan of this one. I wish they were like iPhones and I could get a custom color. A cyan or neon orange blackberry would be awesome.

Oh, and somehow it has a pink trackball

When I did use a BB, I ordered parts from CNN.cn or something like that (not sure of the URL, but I'm sure Google will bring something up). Or I just spray paint the parts myself with some krylon.
