Re: Why don't young people like Blackberry ?

Why would anyone buy a phone they'd never seen any of their friends use, and which none of their friends could help them with, and which had an OS completely unfamiliar to them? Kids can start with...

Hmm, I doubt it. I'd really like to think that they removed the feature because of some user research, but I doubt that too.

My Blackberry phone is the same, so I assume this is normal.

Re: Restarting after OS update

No, it's WiFi only. I assumed it wouldn't have an IMEI because of that, but the dealer said there must be one. They're still searching their records for the serial number.

Re: Restarting after OS update

Now the dealer wants the IMEI number to check the warranty. It's not on the case, so I assume you can only get it via the OS, which isn't running. Any ideas?
