    Sweet phone. The keyboard will take some time to get use to but it is very good. I am really missing all my notification/alerts/led colours... and my calender did not get brought over nor did half my contacts. Grrrr! Very different UI. Very cool.

    Why doesn't BBM work on this Bold. All I get is a "Associating BBM with Your Blackberry ID" screen that keeps on going forever

    Rogers Chat person said the data plan works on all phones including BlackBerry. I'm able to do everything else...BBM was working earlier as well.

    Some CSRs are really dumb. For BB, you need a BB-specific plan to allow BIS/BBM etc... to work.

    BB data plans work with all phones.

    All other data plans DO NOT work with BBs.

    Those are the rules.

    Well I got it now, but Diddle Rogers employees, they should know their own company's Dung.

    Old Bold users, how come I only sometimes get a notification in the bar on top, and sometimes I don't?
