    I Have bricked my phone twice. 1st time I blamed myself for downloading old apps. But this time I had no apps but the "thank you gifts" from Blackberry. I am frustrated because I reloaded the OS for the 2nd time I used Blackberry protect to do a restore, this time my BBM/Groups contacts came back but not my address book. I tried Blackberry Protect and all that did was restore 7 contacts. I wanted to do a restore from Desktop Manager but was afraid I would not get back my BBM Groups. 90% of the time the restore says "restoring BBM Groups" But nothing ever happens. I do have an address Book with 7 contacts that are from an "unknown" contact list, not associated with none of my emails. What is this "unknown" contact list???. Do you have a frustrating story??? Please Vent and share your issues and tell us what u think might be a fix
    FYI I still have faith in my berry

    When did my Curve NOT brick? It bricked charging more than once. It bricked in the middle of an email. I ditched it and got my Storm2 and only bricked it once deleting an app that froze my phone and gave me the white screen of death.

    I always use a DM backup to restore my BB. I have to be reinvited to BBM groups, but it's a small price to pay.

    Haven't yet bricked my 9800 in the 11 months I've had it now. Nor the Pearl 8100 I had for the 3 and a half years before the Torch. Both had seen plenty of OS updates and app installs without issues. Doesn't mean that some particular apps didn't have problems - they just never bricked the phone in the process.

    Haven't bricked one since my Tour. I didn't brick that one, the Tour had a quirky OS on it. No problems with my 9650 or 9850 (Knocks on wood). Wifes 9670 is going strong also with no problems.
