Default New 7130c: phone=great; cingular=bad; case = strange

Please Login to Remove!

Got my new 7130c 36 hours ago. The new screen alone is worth the money. I also seem to be getting better RF, especially in my office. I don't run many apps, but PocketDay+sports is working. I'll install BB411 etc later today. BES activation with link2exchange went perfectly.

Suretype works a lot better. The phone feels more solid. It's a bit smaller, but still fits perfectly into my RIM case for my 7100. The strange thing is that the magnet will only put the phone to sleep if I put the phone in UPSIDE DOWN. The case that came with the phone works fine, but I don't want the belt clip.

So I call 611 (motto: "To waste more time, please continue to hold.") to activate the SIM. This seems to go well with no problems, but then I find that I can't change my handheld at the Cingular BIS. The old BB support numbers I had no longer work, so I go back to 611, and get transfered to a "Blackberry expert" who tells me that RIM has not linked my PIN to cingular, and I need to register the SIM. I explain that I did that, and the genius on the other end gives me an 800 number so I can "accept the contract". I call this number and get a recording telling me that (1) they won't be back until 7am the next day and (2) for emergencies call ....

So I call the emergency number, and the person tells me that the Nobel prize winner who registered my SIM the first time did not finish the job.

Start-to-finish with cingular = 2 hours.
