I was so enthused about the 8300 that I could not wait for the US release so I bought one from O2 in the UK. I got it unlocked and I'm using it on AT&T. It's been bug free, totally reliable, fast and fun.
That said I then bought an 8300 from Cingular the moment they were released. Same experience, excellent build quality, no bugs, great reliability and stability. However I do prefer the O2 version of the OS, therefore I wiped mine of the Cingular OS and reloaded it with O2 and it works perfectly. Now I have a backup should something happen to of them. Not that one needs it with the proven BB performance (it's just my desire for extra peace of mind).
So my only point is that based on your description it's just software issues as you may have something that is corrupted. I'm thinking that if its wiped clean and one starts over reloading the OS of your choice (my suggestion is O2) then you will be just fine.
