    ITS SO BUGGGYYYY OMFG. SRSLY. Thats my rant.

    If anyone on here uses their phone as much as I do, youll know what I am talking about.

    Ps. i figuired out how to turn off the shutter noise if anyone is interested.

    edit: the trick only works sometimes for me. play a song and turn the volume down and then take a pic.

    Take it back and get a Curve. It will have video with the new OS and it ROCKS!

    i am at the end of my tether with this phone... Very nearly smashed it last night. If an OS re-install doesn't solve my problems I am selling it and getting the new iphone when it comes out. I didn't want to be a sheep I wanted to be different but this phone is just too buggy and complex. It doesn't even have a pop3 mail app. Should come with one as its got wi-fi. At the mo the wi-fi uses on this phone seem very limited

    I upgraded from the 8100 and am very pleased. I don't use the video much, but the wifi makes the browsing much faster (it helps to add wifi networks as available, on top of the tmobile ones). The phone quality is great, and the 8G card and bluetooth stereo are the big drivers for me. Bill

    The G-Mail application from Google should be what you're looking for.

    My guess is that this is a first time for both of you with a BB, and with a SureType device. Buggy these phones are not. The Blackberry OS is the most stable Mobile OS in the industry right now.

    The phone does not "come with" a pop3 email app because its designed to be used with the Blackberry Internet Service to push email directly to you. If you choose not to use this feature, the Gmail mobile email app is what you're looking for.

    I'd suggest working through the learning curve that is associated with the SureType keyboard. Once you're through it, you'll be amazed at how good these phones are.

    If you don't have the patience, I would suggest exchanging for a Curve or a different phone all together.

    1. so you can't add your hotmail, or yahoo emails to the new 8120 via internet email setup?

    2. camera shudder noise a prob

    3. too buggy & complex (not sure exactly what's buggy or how complex, compared to the 8100??)

    4. someone was having memory card issues in another thread

    5. 8120 doesn't have video yet, but curve does or will with some new OS coming soon i guess?


    what other issues have you neen seeing with the 8120??

    i've had 5 pearls since it came out due to memory issues, trackball locking up, camera not working, etc. so i'm ready for an upgrade!!!!

    just not sure if i want 8120, 83xx, or just wait for the 9000.

    Not sure what you're looking for but the 8120 does have pop3 email capability, you just have to add the email account through your BIS, or download something like Gmail. I get pop3 mail accounts pushed to my phone via BIS - comes over Wi-Fi when I have it turned on. I guess I've been lucky because I haven't experienced any problems (other than figuring out how to handle a SD card formatted in another phone and that wasn't a defect or problem with the phone).

    Edit to add: mudshovel: I have video recording on my 8120 - is that what you are asking? And the memory card issue is due to the card being formatted in a BB with an older OS. If you put in a new memory card, there are no problems whatsoever! And if you put in a card that's already been used, you just have to reformat with the 8120 and don't bring over folders created in the older OS and you will also be problem free! :-)

    Mudshovel: I have video recording on my 8120. What are you talking about?

    In order to use POP3 e-mail, you have to either suscribe to Hotmail Plus, Yahoo or Gmail.

    You just need to put it into your BIS account.

    thanks grit, latufu for the clarifications. I didn't really understand those concerns in the 1st place. i couldn't imagine the 8120 being a step back so to speak from the 8100.
