    So my pearl was freezing up like krazy last nite, so i figured i'd do a good old battery pull to reset her, as ive done many times in the past. But this time....when i put the battery back in something was very wrong....i tried to access bbm where i had a couple convos going, well i got that msg you get when you've swicthed to a new device...that was the first warning sign. I kinda lost my breath for a second and quickly went into options and then status and nearly had a heart attack as my pin was displayed as: FFFFFFFF, instead of my actual pin number??!! wtf??!! of course i pulled the battery again thinking that this was just sum little glitch...but no, the problem wasnt goin away.
    Anyways after an hour on the phone with tech support, they came to the conclusion that my berry had amnesia and had to be replaced. I've never heard of this happening, and neither did the tech support dude....just wondering if anyone has ever heard of anything like this? I'd love to hear everyones speculations as to what could have cause this.

    i've read that the FFFFFF for PIN is major hardware failure. i've never seen it personally tho

    sorry, but hey, are they sending you a brand new one?
