4th or 5th Torch, ALL Broke!

this is my 4th or 5th Torch, ATT kept sending me refurbs, thse latest one just broke again, touchscreen dont work anymore..  and I didnt even hook it up to the computer or anything..

 

I tried hard reset but Im not gonna try and troubleshoot it anymore..

 

Im calling ATT to terminate my contract..  I had it..  IM DONE!!!

 

seems like every week Im getting a new Torch and a week later Im having problems..

 

Torch is junk,   NEVER buying anything Blackberry EVER again..

 

Android is gonna stomp BB out of business AND into the sewers where they belong..

Re: 4th or 5th Torch, ALL Broke!

Pretty odd you're getting all the bad devices... all with the same issue.

 

Coincidence?

Re: 4th or 5th Torch, ALL Broke!

lol, Torch #3  went baCK BECUZ the stouchscreen stopped working, although BB tech support said if I contacted them they coulda fixed it, he said ALL my problems I had with ALL phones were software related and coulda been solved.

 

the stoopid att reps kept sending me refurbs, but last time I finally got thru to a good att rep and she gave me ticket number where I was able to finally get thru to BB support and spoke with a BB tech support person, ticket number was good for 3 days..

 

anyhow, I have hardly any apps on this one..  maytbe like 1 or 2..

 

one of them is the Resart me app and the other is the 1000 ring tones one..

 

I am hesitant about installing app as Im quite weary about the phone and if I install all 60 apps on my account and then have to send back to get another phone, then I have to re install everything and it eats up my data plan like crazy!

 

anyway. all is fine, but Im still a lil paranoid as Im not sure if it just will stop working tomm..

 

but the tech support gave me hints on how I can fix it should I have problems..  but I dont wanna have to do this as its a long process to do a clean re install...

 

Im just a lil scared that my Torch will stop working AFTER the warranty ends, then im screwed..
