English a second language?
Yeah, I'm bad, I haven't been on the forum in ages!

I've had this BB for about 2 years now and pretty much learned all I needed to know about it from scouring through here way back when. Since then, everything has been great and I guess I just haven't had a need to come back for help. Just like not-so-close family members, I only show up when I need

So today my BB has been acting up, audio alerts didn't work, I couldn't play my voicemail messages, and it would reboot every time I tried to make or receive a call, so I decided to pay an annual visit to see if there were any known issues.

WHEN THE HECK DID ENGLISH BECOME A SECOND LANGUAGE AROUND THIS PLACE? I tried to read through the 8300 forum and I couldn't understand half of the OPs! I thought I had mistakenly entered an iPhone forum, but no, I was in the right place. I haven't looked at new BBs for a while. Did RIM get rid of punctuation and symbols? Abandon Qwerty keyboards? Adopt auto-correct? Make Turkish slang the new default language?

I'll probably be looking for a new BB in a few months since this one has seen better days. Is there a specific model I should look for that will ensure I have punctuation, qwerty, and English?

Sorry if most of you can't understand what I typed.

By the way, I did a battery pull and all is fine now.

In the meantime, OMGWTFBBQ, IDK, my BFF Jill, YOLO, WTFDYJW, ^URS and KTHXBIE. :???:

Perhaps this was the real problem....You should not have been reading through the 8300 forums as you have an 8500 device! ;-)

Don't stray into the BBM forum. It's like wading through STD's with bare feet.
