    I just can't respond to these "unlocked storm" threads with anything useful to say. Unlocked phones are such a PITA, I dunno what possesses anyone to bother.

    SORRY!

    Since you don't have a data plan, i'm not sure if it's related, but there seems to be a widespread issue with unlocked BB's running on T-Mobile over the last couple weeks.

    Strongly disagree.
    Simple math is that I wanted an S2 and my carrier, Rogers, doesn't carry it.

    I haven't had any significant issues running it unlocked (knock on wood)...

    I'm not sure about T-mobile as i'm on AT&T (and before anyone goes and bashes me for being on that service, I live in the mountains in Colorado and I've had all the services and AT&T is the only one that gets service here and actually great service at that and never had a problem with them). But that being said, mine is unlocked and I have no BB plan, the only thing that I do not have is BBM, and I can just text since I have unlimited texting, so not having BBM doesnt leave me with out anything. There are apps for push email and all the other services Rim provides.
    And having an unlocked phone has never been a PITA. if anything its saving me $30 a month. Plus I look at is a a toy..I play with it, pet it..put hybrids OS on it see how it does..if it doesn't work try something else...then if it ever crashes or dies..Ill go get another one for $20 somewhere and play with it again.
    Its all how you look at it.
    But yes look at the previous posts about T-mobile..I dont need to type that all over again.

    I am not by any means a "cell phone hobbyist", and have had many unlocked phones (some BB, some not). Why should I let my carrier dictate what devices to use when I get can almost any GSM-based phone and run it unlocked. It has never caused any issues for me.

    I am not sure what your beef is here

    "many unoocked phones" and "I am not by any means a "cell phone hobbyist"" are mutually exclusive phrases.

    ok. "power user".

    I use Pandora and google maps. I think I'm a power user too.

    If I use a power washer to clean my sidewalks, THAT should be enough to grant me the title "power user" anyways.

    perhaps most of my posts don't violate the TOS?

    ie it's not enough that you don't LIKE me, for my posts to pulled. If I were to be rude to you, then I'd expect a post to be pulled.

    And the problem still isn't addressed. The OP comes to the forum looking for answers to issues with his/her device, and the same troll hijacks it with rude, arugumentative and combative posts.
