okay kids story time on why blackberry phones are possessed and we need to burn all of them
once upon a time in 2010 i went to a church camp and because my mom was working in the kitchen that year she allowed me to sneak something in to listen to my music on. i would listen to it going to the camp and coming back and during camp when i was alone and had nothing better to do, and she would keep it safe in her cabin and all i had to do is ask to get it.
the problem was was at the time i didn’t have any sort of music player, but my dad had a blackberry phone he had just replaced with an android, so he let me load up my john williams cd collection i just got for my birthday onto it and i went off to camp.
the bus trip to the camp was four hours long so that gave me ample time to put my cd collection on shuffle and listen to it. i dozed off on the bus, enjoying my music, until suddenly a file that wasn’t john williams appeared. it wasn’t a random song or anything, but instead a file with some weird af audio on it. there was a man with a nasally voice speaking backwards, and then there was a woman breathing erotically, and then there was the cry of a baby, and then after all that the creepy, background music climaxed and it ended.
and it scared me shitless.
i never asked my dad about it and i got his old mp3 player to listen to the next year so the blackberry has disappeared somewhere in our utility room, but i think about it all the damn time. i listened to that file on accident many times and i can still remember it clear as day and it was the scariest shit i had ever experienced at that time.
i finally asked my dad about it today after 5 years and he had no idea what i was talking about. i have googled this so many times and i’ve only found two people who had a similar issue to what i did, but there are tons of people who have reported audio corruptions (i.e. one dude whose phone played an audio file of someone screaming anytime he got a notification and he never set it on that). my dad offered to go out and see if he can find that old blackberry but tbh i never want to hear that file ever again it scared me so much omg.
all i know after all this is that blackberry phones are fucking terrifying and i have been scared of them for 5 years now and we should just. stop using blackberries and destroy all of them. they are possessed. where are these audio files coming from blackberry no one has ever really received an answer when they ask.
