Re: poor battery life?

I concur.


I have just bought my Blackberry Curve 8250 and I have to charge it TWICE A DAY !!!!!!!!!!!


Also, when texting you only seem to get about 100 characters and you quickly spend credit

while texting. It is also hard to send texts, too much faffing around.


More "cons" than "pros"


1)  There seems to also be a lot of "slow down". the memory cannot seem to handle much, despite there being  a 2gb memory card inserted.


2) Sim card is VERY hard to remove.


3) The camera ain't up to much. It is very grainy and low quality.


4) Bluetooth won't send from my laptop to the phone, I can only send files from

the handset to my laptop.


I do though like how the phone remembers where you were in menus and takes you straight back

there. It is a phone that is hard work but there is lots of support there which is good. But there needs

to be some improvements.

New Curve 9360 doesn't have an escape key so far as I can see.

It does... it remains the curved arrow key to the immediate right of the trackpad on the top row.
