    Wow, what a story. I give you a lot of credit for the way you've handled yourself in the face of this debacle. Many would be flaming T-Mo, RIM, and anyone else that got in the way. It's very apparent to me (after reading your posts) that you certainly have done your part. I commend you for the efforts you've made. Like so many others here, I'm on my 8th BlackBerry without a problem. I do not say that to make you feel bad, but rather to encourage you to stick with it. For what it's worth, I would think you have odds in your favor that the next BlackBerry you get will be a winner. I cannot imagine you having any more problems than you've already experienced.

    Cheers

    Try using the 4.5 OS, even though its not yet offered from T-mobile, i noticed this has sped up my 8120 a lot. Initially the default OS from t-mobile was terrible, clunky, and slowed down often. The orange UK 4.5 works fine, and does UMA still, make sure its not the 4.5.0.53 build though, this build tends to brick sim cards (at least on t-mobile)

    Were you using 4.3 originally?

    I can sympathize. I changed from an 8100 to the 8120 and loath it to no end. So far the bloody thing lags to the point it locks up. I've had to do more battery pulls on this thing then I can count. It was eating text messages. Just sitting in its holster with an incoming call or txt message would seem to be more than it could handle and would lock up until I pulled the battery.

    T mobiles tech support's only answer is to reformat the bloody thing.

    What pissed me off the most was when the camera decided to start working. I reformatted reinstalled no avail. They finally sent me a replacement. two days before it arrives the camera starts working again so I have to send the new one back.

    I don't begrudge RIM, I think I just got a lemon, it happens. But T mobile is seriously pissing me right the **** off. I want to stay with them so I'm about pleading for a curve, or any other smart pone. I'm even willing to pay so far the best offer they've given me is a old curve for 200$ but I have to extend my contract.

    8120 vs curve

    I didn't have to extend my contract when I returned the pearl in exchange for a curve. Of course, I kept the pearl for a few days before I decided I didn't like it. It froze, ate messages, and won't connect to my local wifi -- among other frustrating things. I did 2 exchanges for the pearl when I finally called it quits and decided it was the model itself that was screwing me over.. And then the curve came and it was love at first sight.

    Had my Pearl for over a year and I loved it. Great little BB for me. I went to the 8900 and fell in love with it too.

    I am currently using my Wife's old Treo 680, my 8120 is the only blackberry that quit working on me. I had problems from the start, but was eventually able to fix it. I reloaded the OS, but after 10 months of the Port being broken and really finding out that the Treo 680 does everything except WIFI that the 8120 does, plus the native apps are better....makes me not love Blackberry anymore. Anytime a phone that is 3 years old is better than a current one, that poses a problem.
