People really do make me laugh.
I think that the original poster is reffering to posts that highlight problems people have had with the 8300. (personally I have had none, thats why I came to Blackberry - v reliable!)
When will people understand that when a product is selling on such a large scale and volume that unfortunalty there will be some faulty items!!
Working in a mobile phone retailer I can honestly say hand on my heart that not one manafacturer is any better than the other! (besides Blackberry, for 5 blackberries to be returned in the 4 years I've worked there isnt bad at all, two of them with a cracked screen!, which btw Blackberry just replaced)
Electrical items do go wrong!! I bought a £2000 samsung lcd tv for it to go wrong in the 1st 4 hours. Unfortunatly its the world of mass production!!
Enjoy your 8300's - I am!!
