Totally agree with you once again, big companies need to avoid useless lawsuits which would cause them a lot of money losses. I think the fact that they don't give instructions with the Pearl on how to encode and put videos is a the right idea, and if they did put instructions they would have to go the route Apple uses and give instructions based on videos they provide and distribute for other companies for a fee. I know how they post is very informative for people that keep complaining and I hate to say it but in a week or two, it's going to the bottom of the list and people who don't use the search function will once again complain again. I'm also not sure if they is stickied material though hehe... very close imo.
Very happy with my BlackBerry Pearl 8100 !
