I have had dozens of smartphones , starting first off with an Ipaq with pcmcia sleeve and gprs card... really have you read any my previous comments!. The reason its taken 8 hours first of the berrrlicous thread is 252 pages long, the bbsak app it turns has know issues with windows seven that are not published, and it now turns out the berrylicous hybrid has issues with the Vodafone uk service book...

Anyway my phone is back to normal as of 8 this morning ..... full wipe and the only things restore are my email accounts, and bluetooth and wifi profiles and guess what 3 hours and 25% gone, and I'm not using the sure signal......
As said before I genuinely love hacking and tinkering, Ive been playing with pdas and smartphones and small devices for 12 years, I'm saying this as I mess around with a linux open wrt pirate box, so am more than happy hacking but honestly, If someone like me is totally and utterly frustrated then no wonder people are dropping there BB's as most people realy dont want this grief.
RIM really need to sort there software development out, it reminds of Microsoft in the early 2000's when they could not keep up with exploits on win2k and XP and didn't have a viable windows update service and there technet and knowledge base was awfull... RIM need to start again, forget about apps etc etc and just get reliable phone software that works and works well, there email client is a shining example, but rest of the phone is riddled with problems and this is highlighted by this very thread where the only answer to everyone's problem is to run a hacked firmware..
and to people who think Im asking too much well I think not Im not looking for 2-3 days without charging Im looking to get through a 12 hour day with maybe 30 mins browsing and hours emailing and maybe 1 hours phonecall..... as it is my phone is flat in 12 hourss if I do nothing, if I do use its flat in 6 hours... surely that's not acceptable?
