We’re really sorry we have to do this, but we cannot continue to support BlackBerry repairs. Cost of parts, labor and in the infrequency of service make many of these devices no longer economical or practical to repair.
Gophermods was built and launched during the financial recession of 2008 – 2010. Folks needed an economical repair, and they turned to us for devices that are often older, obscure or hard to service. We’re some of the OGs in this repair space and have fixed plenty of BlackBerry models. So if we tell you we can’t repair it anymore, I wouldn’t trust many other folks to service your older devices.
Thinking about DIY: Do it! This the only economical / practical process we would recommend to service this device. We would HIGHLY recommend tools, parts and step-by-step guides from ifixit.com
Our relentless determination to provide a quality service gifted us with the opportunity to support thousands of other devices for customers.
Maintaining the skill, equipment, and ability to service these devices is unfortunately not possible. We still receive requests, but we cannot maintain the level of quality service and repairs for a request that is only received every few months.
I know this is disappointing; if we had a solid referral, we would give you one, but we are unaware of any significant reputable company that we can honestly recommend that would provide you with quality AND value.
Thank you so much for all your support over the past decade.
