Default No Bold for me!

Please Login to Remove!

Mine arrived and the track ball did not work. No matter how hard you pushed the ball it would not select anything.

Sending back to the seller for refund!

Oh well, I like my Curve!

The one think I don't like about the Bold is you can not pop the track ball out and clean/replace it like with the other BBs?

I do not think that USA repair centers would even have the parts yet. It kinda ticks me off that ATT can even get 4.5 released and we are waiting on the Bold!

Anyway the seller from eBay is trusting and is overnighting, from Canada, another Bold that will be here on Thursday. I have already had FedEx pick the broken unit up to get it back to him.

Well I got to look at the screen and play with the keyboard but as it says, again, in my profile, CURVE for me!

What'd you think of the size of the Bold? I'm a girl so I have smaller hands (lol) and I didn't find the Bold too bulky when I played around with one briefly last week. I'm not sure if it'll feel huge when using it as a phone though. I'm coming from a Pearl...LOL. Think I'll get used to the size of it when using it as a phone?

I guess if you are coming from a Pearl it would seem HUGE! I have very large hands the the Pearl was way to small to me. <vbg>

I would think you would get used to it rather quickly. With the larger device you are getting a nice keyboard that is easy to use. Just give it some time. I use the 8820 and it does not seem big to me.

Thanks, good to hear! Yeah, I like the bigger screen and full keyboard of the Bold, I'm just a bit iffy about it when using it as an actual phone! lol. I'm sure I'll get used to it though. Thanks for the input

After using the Pearl it must feel like you are holding a brick!

Enjoy!

My trackball was weird at first it wouldn't move if i was scrolling for every long, it just kept getting stuck. but now after a week everything is fine. Probably needed to be broken in.

Does anybody know if its easy to change the trackball on a bold? I usually buy 5 at a time because i like always having a clean trackball

Sorry to hear that Greg! If I was in your shoes, I would ask the big guy upstairs "why me?"

Anyhow, keep us posted!!!

Thanks to the both of you. My new Bold will ship tomorrow, so quickly he will not have the unlock code till Friday when it arrives. The broken one was already picked up by FedEx. the seller is really being great about this by shipping another before he gets the broken one back.

Sorry to hear about the Bold. I can't imagine my frustration when I open my Bold and its broken. Luckily you have found a solid seller, I think you should post the sellers info somewhere on the site, so that others can use him/her as well.

I would except the seller is bending over backwards to make it right. He is even shipping another unit today via overnight while FedEx has not got his broken one back in his hands. Not many sellers would do that!

Thursday will be the day!
