try formatting and reloading your operating system (see the BB FAQ for help on this or search the forums...)

Can you explain in more details what have you done?

Did you perform 'Change device' from BIS Web page or have you done something else?

If this was the device change, was it reported as successful?

When you pushed service books to 8830 after device change, have they all arrived, one for each email address?

Have you received a message (looks like email) that your device was activated on the network?

Keep in mind that RIM has had an outage last night and this morning. That could be part of the problem.

Stop ranting and raving and chill a bit. As Berry One has asked, tell us what you have done so far.

You neglected to mention that while you did obvious step of pushing service books they did not arrive.

With that minor detail included, the problem description changes from 'works like crap' and 'BS' to 'Unable to receive service books on device after device swap'- which is much easier for support to troubleshoot.

If service books still not arrive to device when you send them from BIS web page- call support and tell them that your new device is 'Unable to receive service books after device swap.'

i forgot to mention that also after my esn change i could not log onto the bis as my acct got locked. and then after that nothing would work in regards to the service books.

Having right service books is paramount for successful functioning of blackberry.

Call support and tell them you can't login- they can unlock your account for you.
Push yourself service books after you can login to your account.

You can also ask support push service books to your device. They can do it for you.

How do you know it's RIM and not Verizon if you don't know what the problem is?? It doesn't even sound like your issues are device-specific and are instead issues with your carrier from what you've said so far.

I understand being frustrated but ranting doesn't provide the needed info to troubleshoot issues. If you really think a Palm device would be better you should give it a shot... Though switching devices certainly won't help with carrier-related issues (and seems to be the catalyst in this case).
