Default BlackBerry 7250 Security & Durability

Please Login to Remove!

I'm new to the BlackBerry world with just recently switching from regular LG camera phone to BB. I got the 7250 series. Just curious how secure the firewall option is on the 7250 when browsing/email. FYI, I'm using the BlackBerry Internet Service (Browser), Not Enterprise. I'm thinking it's got to be pretty secure, as the US Govt supposedly has a lot of BB users.

I'm slowly getting used to the small keys, the Esc button, and the Dial on the side. I'm hoping that they all are durable enough to stand-up to every day use. Anyone encounter any problems with their keys after substantial use? Just curious about this and safe browsing.

Look forward to hear comments from those experienced users and addicts alike! Take care and have a good weekend all!!

Everything from the HH should be encrypted. As far as being durable, I have dropped/kicked/baby drool/beer'ed/dropped in a puddle and it has lasted the test of time. Just a few nicks and scratches but other then that it is fine! It is the best thing I have ever used!!!
