I ordered two units, one for myself & for one of the Directors. I had a Bold for 10 days & the battery life put me off .
Out of the box the first potential problem to notice is the gap between the screen and the casing. Just above the buttons is as much as 2mm gap and you can see the components/back lite .Due to the click trough system they had to have the gap so the screen doest rub against the casing ( there was no gap on the dummy ).
An elegant solution: some sort of rubber/silicon grommet around the edge , dust will definitely be a problem but not terminal . A droplet of rain etc , that will terminate the device .
I left the screen sensitivity in default , I left the protective screen on ( taking off didn't made any difference to the touch sensitivity) .
Browsing dependents on the site you are visiting ( speed vise ) .Sky tv :don't bother ,some YouTube clips were OK ,some couldn't open at all.
Major problem that I had , was today . Call bar on outgoing and incoming calls ,people could hear me but I couldt .Phone will ring but I couldn't hear the caller ( mute was not on).
I took the battery & the Sim out ,then replace the battery,then take out the battery ,finally replace the battery & Sim ( this was the advice from Vodafone C/S). The reboot solve the problem...For a few hours
Went to the Vodafone shop and rep repeated the reboot process ,the Storm is working again . But he said there is a problem with the unit and offered to replace the set .
(Now I don't have any incoming emails
, but I can send?)
I shall send both units back to Vodafone and get the Bold back ( I just have to put up with the battery issue) .
I am sure that BB will resolve the issues , but I cant see this as a viable business device ( fingers to large and typing was frustrating ).
