    The reason I would like to have it "stop working" is then I will be able to order a new one and not a hand me down. Its all corporate bull

    If you are talking about breaking it to have the carrier replace it, the warranty is only valid for one year unless you have an extended protection plan.

    I'm responsible for all of the communications devices within my company and I have a good sense of knowing when something like you are describing has happened and I replace the item broke with the same model and type of whatever is broken. It really cuts down on people having these kinds of ideas.

    Good luck though...

    Instead of being able to order a new one (curve) I am being given a old 7290 which belonged to someone who just left, now I don't want to smash it up or anything like that. I have a 8700 as a personal device but they won't allow me to use that.

    My wife washed my work phone a while back (a moto flip of some sort... don't recall the model.) I pleaded my case to my manager, he told me that they don't do well in the wash, and I had a new RAZR within a day. Your mileage may vary.

    As a manager of a department and a BUDGET, I have replaced phones like that as well but required reimbursement from that employee before the phone was activated for them.

    That can get expensive for any company with any number of employees who has their budget scrutinized.

    You are right. It is unethical and anyone who responds with an idea should be ashamed of themselves!

    To be honest. I LOVE the 7290...
    It was my first BB. And it worked like a champ... Just order another housing from CNN.CN and you can have a NEW PHONE>>>> Oh remember to get the right screwdriver....
    Ugh, couldnt think of anything to change it to.

    I could help you... You can load hundreds of themes and ringtones and games until your BB is so slow you cant check your emails or do your work on your BB in a timely matter. Then tell them you need a BB that can handle all of what you need.

    I'm sure somebody could dig up a copy of an old 4.0 OS with some nasty memory leaks, we could load that on there to speed up the "slow down" process.
