    reception

    Plllllllease someone from rim tell me how blackberries can have such bad reception considering the fact that they are only edge and not even 3G. It is really driving me insane that my nokia gives me full 3G bars, other edge phones give full bars edge, and blackberries don't even give me edge in the same place.

    yeah I have an unlocked bb and have tried several sim cards from different carriers and each one gave me various signal bars. Maybe its carrier specific?!

    Re: reception

    if you are using SIM cards, sometimes it could be the SIM card. But if the same SIM card you are using in your blackberry you are usin i your other phones then you unfortunately may have recieved a defective device

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ tried to check that as well... Switched sims...not that.... And same for my co workers and their blackberries. The chances of all of us getting defective ones is slim I think considering we got them at different times from different places.

    Re: reception

    not necessarily...if you all have ones made in the same country (inside the phone next to the battery) they coulda shipped a defective batch to it's distributor which in turn sold them to you country's various authorized BB retailers and viola!...bad BBs to all in dubai...sorry

    p.s. dubai is an awesome country and it's on the top of my world destinations list to get crossed off

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~hhmmm... Bad shipment... Seems possible... Somehow I feel going to the distributor and arguing I have bad reception is gonna be a tough fight... Not gonna happen the way customer service is here. Unfortunately everything is a monopoly here. Only good service for tourists so u should still come out.
