So my Blackberry Torch packed up. Last night it was all magical and perfect, this morning the screen is a horrible red mess of pixels and other unidentifiable shit. The trademark "Do a battery pull" advice didnt work after 13 tries, so I had no option left but to phone the Alimighty MTN.
My phones screwed pretty much. So the only option is to have it transported away for "4 to 6 weeks" upon which it will be assessed, then either repaired or replaced. Fine, I can semi handle that, but I had one small concern, what do I do in the mean time? I've been very reliant on my BBM and the BIS and such, and now all of a sudden, it's snatched away from me and I am left with nought. I asked if any replacement phone is given, and alas no, not even a crappy Curve is given to you until your phone is ready.
I'm no big business man at all, but I know a few people who are rather reliant on their Blackberrys for their day to day emailing and such, and I wonder what they would do in a similar situation.
Mightly pissed off right now...our fault for being too reliant on one device, or the service providers for not catering for us in these unfortunate circumstances?
