    the biggest problem that i had was buggy software. I had 2 [lost one and got another one from the carrier] and didn't have hardware issues with either.

    I have had my Bold for almost a year...have not had any issues at all...there was a memory thing...memory got low and phone lagged a bit, but I also had a lot of apps installed. Did an OS update and my memory issues cleared up.my app memory right now is 19. Something...I have Pandora, Slacker, Shazam, Google mobile app, google maps, google voice, google talk, aim, yahoo messenger, msn messenger, facebook app, myspace app, wells fargo app, Viigo, blackberry wallet, Launchpad, Bolt Browser, Twitterberry, GPSlogger...I think that's it...lol..but only other thing would be my battery life...I forget to close apps and I work at an airport where I need to talk to employees all day so in the 100 phone calls I make or receive...my battery drains a bit...so I carry an extra one or keep my phone plugged in when I am in my stores..but really Love my Bold

    I am on number 8 on AT&T. They have all had random restarts, screen freezing, white screen and dropped calls. I have no third party software on them. It didn't matter what version of OS they were running. Even the new AT&T .297 is not working for me.

    So it would seem that even a Cadillac will experience a bump here and there. Just like all of the other BB's out there. I just purchased a Bold 9000 for my wife the other day, still waiting for it to arrive. We've both had Curve 8300's now for two years, just now beginning to show their wear, but still in excellent condition. I'm hoping the Bold will treat her just as well. Me, I'd like to see the 9700 first before I decide.

    Still on the first device. Went through some battery issues, but a couple new batteries and OS reloads have fixed that for the most part. Did you or your wife ever try to nuke & reload any of the devices she's had? We've found that the newer OS releases have steadily improved the device.
    It doesn't record video. Get over it.
