Default A very LONG shot!

hahaha..Yea...It's a very long shot but I was wondering if anyone had a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter

Something like this:
nGear 2.5MM/3.5MM Stereo Audio M/F Adapter - DirectCanada

The only reason I don't want to order it from there is because of the $10 shipping lol..

3$ product but want $10 for shipping


So would anyone like to help me out and sell me there's. I'll pay $5 and you could send it to me in a small envelop for 0.52$ or whatever the stamp cost is..

Thank you..

O and I don't want to order from Dealextreme or Focalprice because it will take 2-3weeks :help:

Thank you, Mike!

Ummmmmmmmm

Just about any store that sells audio equipment will have it. Hell... it wouldn't be quality, but I'd almost bet that the dollar store would have one.... :)

For sure either Futureshop or the source would.

A large franchised dollar store will have it. That's where I buy printer cables, short lan cables, mini-usb to usb cables and 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapters.

You are in Montreal? Dollarama is where you go. If they don't have it go to the Source. If not, go to Layton Audio.

Crap...bought the adapter at The Source but turns out that BlackBerry is very very very Picky on adapters and the ones at the Source simply don't work...I need to order from that US store that sells adapters that are made especially for Blackberries.

DAMN!

And it cost me $10 at the source for that mini adapter! :(

Is RIM taking a page from Apple WRT proprietary accessories?

What's the difference between a standard adapter, and the special "crackberry" ones?

Did you check at any of the retailers who carry blackberrys?
