LOL...I have a Curve I use all day long, my wife has one for personal and one for work that she uses even more than I do and all 3 are almost 2 years old and still solid. I really want the 8900, but can't justify replacing a perfectly good device...lol. Damn RIM and their reliability...lol.
Oh wait...I do know of a Curve that went belly up. My sister took hers swimming with her and it stopped working. You would think they would idiotproof...I mean water proof these things..lol.
