Unless someone can tell me of a software down load or such, Im ditching Blackberry forever.
Sounds like a rant (and a threat of leaving) to me.
So you are fully aware, this forum is not owned or operated by Research in Motion. It is privately operated and everyone here is a volunteer.
So, climb off the pious soapbox, and if you want help, you may be able to get it.
So you ha 9700, correct?
What version of the Operating System is running (Options / About will tell you).
How much free space is on the BB (Options / Status will tell you).
What applications are you running outside of the basic BlackBerry apps?
Answer these and stop venting your frustration that you are having problems with your BlackBerry.
P.S. I have had the same 9700 since before the day they were released with none of your issues.
