I'm still waiting for my 7290 to arrive. I've been reading this forum for a while now this is the first report of this kind. I'm guessing you're implying it doesn't take a lot of punishment since others are happy with the unit itself.
I have a Cingular locked 7290 BB that is new and never been used. I bought it off ebay, opened the box (IT WAS STILL SEALED, ORANGE BOX), put in my TMobile SIM and found the phone is locked to Cingular. The seller claims to be returning my money but he hasn't yet (2 days). I paid $260. Let me know if you're interested. I will ship ASAP. Sounds like she can use a backup.
