    Post Talk time ??

    Advertisement



    Hi Pinstack

    I got a BBP with Rogers last week. Both the company and hardware are very new to me. I am glad to join this PS community. Right from the day of purchase, my BBP has problems with the back door (battery door). The white silver knob is not controlled by the spring tension. I asked for a replacement and they told me that since the purchase was made less than 30 days, they are happy to replace the hardware. I was wondering if there is a way to check the talk time of the BB unit. So that i can verify whether the unit that they send me is a new or old one.

    thanks,

    SaKu

    Welcome to pinstack! Not sure if by wiping the handheld will kill call timers or not, as I haven't had the need to do that yet. I'm betting you won't be able to know. The usual protocol is to send refurbished units out, but you've got a decent chance to get a new one seeing this is such a new model. Either way, its got the same warranty, new or refurbished. Hope this helps and again, welcome!

    However, the timers can be reset.

    I've had three BlackBerry devices, and my call timer for all calls is the total from all three devices over the last year and a half.

    And almost every device on the market (BlackBerry Moto, Nokia, etc.) can be hacked and have the call timers reset. I would say that the call timers are no longer a good indication of whether a phone is used or new.

    And welcom Saku!

    I'm with Rogers as well, if you have a question, feel free to PIN me or find me on BlackBerry Messenger.

    thx Lewis for the welcome...RN, i have 1Mb bandwidth for data plan and 6 months of unlimited local calling & incoming with Rogers. I was wondering whether if i could cancel my data plan and buy 2MB bandwidth plan (5$) meant for Cellular phones. If i do so, will i be still able to use BB messenger/ yahoo / msn. I am a grad student and this data plan seems to be expensive for me.

    thx in advance

    For all the BB beginners..; i wiped the application data from BBP before i handed over my defective pearl. I verified the talk time, which was zeroed. So, when u buy BBP dont judge its usage with the talk time.

    The above comment on talk time may be silly. But, i guess for beginners like me, it helps.

    saku, as answered in the other thread, No You won't be able to use anything that requires date with the other plan.
