I've just remembered that my old blackberry sucked a lot more when I first got it, then they fixed some stuff, I got some "service packs" sent to me over the airwaves, and it sucked much less, to the point where I loved my bb more than I loved my children.
The same will obviously happen with my BBB - blackberry bold. Roll on the service packs.
The weird thing ... I had my old bb about 9 months before I called vodafone about an unrelated problem and the support guy mentioned the service packs in passing. Prior to that I had no idea they existed. I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that this is RIMs biggest hurdle: they're still not set up to deal properly with consumers. I'm not an IT department.
BTW: if you have an iphone then I bet you a brazillion dollars that my Blackberry still has a bigger penis than your iphone, even with it's faults.
