Hopefully I'm missing something obvious - but, users of our mobile webmail site have reported that they can not reply to messages. They all have user agents like "BlackBerry8320/4.5.0.x...".
I've trimmed down the page to the following HTML. If the textarea is over 12 or so rows, and it contains content, no content after the textarea is displayed in the browser.
Does anyone have any information on this - maybe a workaround?
<title>BlackBerry Compatibility Test Page</title>
<textarea name="test" rows="13">Test textbox
<input type="submit" name="action" value="Send"/>

I have been able to reproduce this on BlackBerry handheld software version 4.5.0. It worked fine in version 4.3.0 and 4.6.0, so it appears that the problem has been addressed.
You could detect the BlackBerry Browser version and limit the textarea to 12 lines if the version is 4.5.0. The following link explains how to detect this.

Are there any updates on this issue? I'm experiencing exactly the same problem on the 188.8.131.52 browser.
I can make my page work if I restrict the text in the TEXTAREA to approximately 20 characters, but this is obviously not an optimal solution.
I'm also testing in the 8310 (184.108.40.206) simulator - this actually causes a JVM exception in the simulator when I try and load the page.
