We had the same problem. Turned out to be a defective unit actually. We had other units that had similar problems. When they were Verizon Units (like the 8830) we re-burned their flash with the downloaded update from Verizon and that fixed them.
We have had big problems with the Curve units on Centennial Wireless... they really have a tough time provisioning the devices on their end. However, they are a regional carrier here in Indiana only I think, so that probably doesn't help.
You can go into the sync setup for the user and disable the sync steps one at a time to see where they are getting frozen. We had one guy whose device simply could not pass them memo sync phase. We disabled it, he sync'd everything else find, but went on days later to have problem deleting messages he had in his inbox (from test messages)- no way to delete them. Weird stuff.
The logs generally tell the best story...

The log with the really good stuff in it is the
This baby is loaded with goodies. If a device is provisioned incorrectly, you will see the no PIN returned code, etc.
