OK, I promised I’d post an update about my new BlackBerry 7100t when I had more to say. Well, now’s the time. I’ve had to return the phone 2 times so now I’m on my third and it looks like 3rd time’s the charm! The Q/W key on the first phone wouldn’t work so I returned it almost immediately and it was replaced the same day. Then, a few days after I got it, the keypad on the 2nd phone began to fail intermittently. To get it to function again I would have to push on the screen in various places. Sometimes a row of keys wouldn’t work, other times a column wouldn’t work and yet at other times a few keys out of a row or column wouldn’t work. It took them almost 3 weeks to replace my handset this time but it looks like this one is good.
I have to say, throughout the whole ordeal, I’ve enjoyed the new phone. Guess that makes me a BlackBerry junkie. I like the form factor, I like the way it feels in my hand, I like the applications that run on it and, most importantly, I like the way it synchronizes with my Outlook contacts and calendar.
