    do you have insurance on the phone? Did you try and take it to the store to see if they could help? You might get lucky and they may give you a new phone.

    Good news is, this is a simple problem. You are low on memoury. Go to Options>Status and please report back with the exact number you see for available mem.

    As far as fixing this issue, do a search for Stoner's Guide to Memoury Optimization. Follow the steps. Or, download MaxMem from BlackBerryTrade.com. Also, be sure you are properly closing out apps via Menu>Close. You can also clear your internet cache and event log, which will help. Make sure you are storing all media on a media card, and finally do a battery pull a couple times a week. This will clear up a ton of memoury.

    Its unlikely the volume not adjusting is a memory problem. Also unlikely that the phone not coming back from standby is a memory issue when it works with other keys. Its much more likely the button either moved out of place or has been damaged/destroyed.

    The Stoner Guide that Jenay referred to is in my sig. Losing texts and slow operation definitely sound like low free memoury...the volume button may be something else.

    I caught that and knew what you meant.

    I'm just getting increasingly sick of not only being corrected ten times a day, but also having to explain myself to people who don't realize that other countries may spell certain words differently than america....
