    “Sweet Jesus, what else can happen to RIM. Seriously.” Well…

    Anyone know if it was an original or third party battery?

      Valid question. When the iPhone started smoking on the plane in Austraila it turned out the owners had the battery replaced on the cheap and the person misplaced a screw under the battery, piercing it.

      How do we know this shop didn’t do something similar

    Is your need to rub RIM’s nose in it really this grim?

    RIM should love that, they haven’t had a hot product in years!

    Would be nice if the writer added that RIM wanted to investigate and asked to inspect the phone, battery and charger. The family says they can’t locate the pieces. Really?? I smell scam.
