In light of your problems, if you haven't already, do some searches to see if the posts I am recalling did deal with downgrading OS on 7100g, and see what those users had to say.
Otherwise, not much we can do but be patient and hope that RIM will improve phone quality when OS 4.1 for 7100g comes out (seems to be better based on posts regarding 4.1 devices, like 8700c and, I believe, 7105t and 7100i).
