The camera can"t be started.


I unfortunatly bougth Blackberry Q5 last day, and just after buying it the power switch/buttom isnt working. Till now i wasn"t able too restart the device.


And just now with in 18 hours i got new error the camera can't be started.


Is this poor quality and OS being made by the Blackberry which doesnt satisfy the customer for the single day, and i just read one post under which a person having the same camera trouble and reply given to him was to re-install the complete OS WTF, we are here to buy the new smart phone or to keep its software updating due to your poor services and OS / hardware.


Totaly dis-satisfied isn't going to recomend phone to anyone.


I have done the fullish thing to buy Q5 instead of purchasing Android or I-phone available in the market.

Re: The camera can"t be started.

Can you not take it back to your seller and get a replacement or switch?
