Thumbs down BB CURVE 8530 engineered by an elf

BB CURVE 8350 IS A PIECE OF CRAP WITH FUNDAMENTAL DESIGN FLAWS. COMPLETELY DIED AFTER ONLY 9 MONTHS OF LIGHT TO MODERATE USE.

Who engineered this thing - an elf?

Why does a phone with so many supposed capabilities have such a miniscule keyboard? Even the tiniest hands and sharpest eyes have a hard time. Everything gets misspelled because no one can read anything that small or avoid hitting 2-3 keys at a time.

Why does a phone with so many supposed capabilities have a grossly inadequate battery? It's like running a PC on AA batteries. Why build in all those capabilities and features if the unit can't handle them without constant charging? You can't even use some of the capabilities without being tethered to an outlet.

Unit seizes when you go too fast for it. The only way out is rebooting, which takes forever.

Unit completely died with no warning sings after only 9 months. Of course, BB couldn't care less. Service Dept. is hostile. Warranty is totally useless. To top it all off, Sprint charges an in-warranty fee. What's the point of a warranty? What a joke.

Curve is nothing but a big fat bait and switch. It's a scrawny, malnourished lightweight, not the trimmed down heavyweight that BB touts.

How does the saying go? Fooled me once, shame on you . . .

I don't get fooled twice. Now shopping for an Android, and looking forward to brighter UNBlackberry days ahead.
