    So I entered the world ov blackberry amazed and ignorant. I was so impressed by the new OS and anything was better than the moto q9 and that excuses phor an OS called windows mobile. I phinally had my 8830 and I was on top ov the world. My glory was short lived though. One month later I was on the phone with a Verizon rep requesting a new phone because the trackball was badly malphunctioning. I phigured this was a phluke but more disappointment with this class world edition was to come. The next had a problem resetting itselph every phew minutes while it recharged at night. The phinal 8830 had a malphunctioning end button making this phone practically useless. I got the good news on Monday, I have the green light phrom VZW to move to any other model I wanted. Aphter posting here I made the choice to go with the sexy little 8330 Curve. When it arrived at my house today I eagerly pulled it out ov the box and transpherred the services. Examining the two side by side I was kind ov sad seeing the elegant, sexy, and dominant looking 8830 leave but it's time has come and gone. I have upgraded, and new phone is superior more memory and a camera. Everything is better now. Right? WRONG. The phucking ph key does not work. That's write no ph what the phuck! Blackberry what have I done to you to deserve this cruel phate.

    Ok if press the button it works but it won't opperate normally other than just calling verivon and getting another one?

    Personally, I woudn't settle. You had a heck of a time with the first, and they try and make it right....only they didn't. They sent you one that has a bad key. Thats what warranty is for. It might have been a refurb too; so I would definately send it back.

    I think this phone was brand new. It came in an unopened BB box and they said they were sending me a NEW unit. the problem s I had with the 8830 were with refurbs after the first one though. I know if i send this one back to them I'll get another secondhand BB. I don't want another refurb. Does anyone on here work for Verizon or have any sugestions for me to get someting sweet out of this?

    And the bright side I am one step closer to getting another upgrade. Look out thunder and bold here I come.
