I started this thread and received my replacement 9930 a couple days ago via someone who brought it to me in Jordan. It's been operating OK but within the past few hours has spontaneously rebooted three times -- without me doing a battery pull or otherwise doing anything to trigger it. I'm wondering whether this is a precursor to another failure. I hope not -- but if it happens, I'll post it here.

The BB Bolds are defective and are spontaneously self-destructing. It happened to mine this morning.
I contacted RIM directly to inquire as to when or if they will have a fix. In return, I received an evasive, generic non-reply that failed to addres the relevant issue.
I also tried the procedures for restoring "bricked" or "nuked" phones, but they didn't work because the problem is with the phone itself.
Apparently the only solution at this time is to replace the phones and pray you get one that will work this time.

and probably cause of this **bleep**ing sticker i wont get it replaced... it was working so that drop of water or condense isnt the cause in this case... if they check all the parts they can see nothing happened to it. So i will demand a second opinion! all circuits are in good shape on that thing

One look at the number or users reporting this problem proves this is much more widespread than RIM is admitting.
This is my second and LAST RIM product.
I could have flushed 6 crisp $100 bills down the toilet for the same level of satisfaction I have gotten with the BB Bold.
