BlackBerry Storm 2 - A Lemon

I am now on my eighth BlackBerry Storm 2. The latest one arrived yesterday and is going back.


Here is a list of just some of the many faults:


  • Frequently reboots itself
  • Turns network connection off
  • GPS works erratically – sometimes in the middle of Central London it is impossible to get the GPS to work
  • Phone voice quality can be abysmal.
  • Ring tones/alerts will for no apparent reason fail to work. Only cure is to take the battery out and then replace it


Vodafone’s response is to say that I must have a duff phone from a duff batch.


It must have been a bloody large duff batch!

Re: BlackBerry Storm 2 - A Lemon

Eight? Wow!


Yea, I'd say you very definately get one from a different batch -- even a different planet?


Good luck!
