My BlackBerry has been a constant source of frustration since it is worthless as a data device, it frequently drops connections and often will not reconnect again. The phone provider just runs through a standard set of clearing cache, removing battery, etc. types of circumventions that may get the connection back but it fails soon after. It is pointless to have a device that needs to have the battery removed multiple times every day, and that ends up being an unreliable MODEM for connecting to the internet. Talking to the phone service provider is of little help since they are a middle man for RIM whom seems to provide them with no real means of resolving problems, and RIM seems to have isolated themselves from the customer base so that they have no idea about how the customer experience with their product. The problem is encountered from both a Windows Media Center (WIN/XP) desktop and a Windows Vista Laptop, using my sons NOKIA E51 works without any problems and even provides faster connections in the process. It seems that this is a problem with the BlackBerry product, but I have not been able to find any support that can resolve the issues.
ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO GET THE BLACKBERRY CURVE TO BE RELIABLE?
