Probably the case then, where I store it at night it gets bad reception (ltos of interference from all my other devices, including a PDA with BT and WiFi turned on and an MP3 player playing through the speakers not 4 feet away) I have acctually heard it beeping off and on here, so...
On howard forums there's a massive thread about this, like 11 pages worth of ppl using BBs without BB plans, Nextel being the most common, they may not like it, but they havn't tried to stop anyone yet (though I am told if you use a real nextel SIM, then tehy will start billing you for BB plan --- mine's prepaid though so they cant really do anything about it! lol)
Glad to see this isn't just my BB, thanks!
