With every up, there is a down. It is just how life works. Not everything you love is perfect, and that poses the question of when does one out weigh the other? The issue I seem to be having is JVM errors and White Screen of Deaths! (WSD).
There has been a lot of buzz going around about dead 99xx devices. People having them completely bricked when they wake up. Others are experiencing WSD’s on a re-occurring basis. I have experienced this with different errors and multiple devices which rules out hardware issues. Me, personally have now had 6 JVM errors between 2 devices in 3 months. To me, that is uncalled for, and is becoming quite frustrating. I never thought I would carry 2 devices on me, just to use one as a back up in case one all of a sudden dies, but wish I did last weekend. That is when JVM 512 pushed me over the edge.
I was on vacation in Boston with my Fiancee and we were having a great time, she decided to leave her 9700 (she wont upgrade after seeing all my issues) at home so she wouldn’t roam and get extra charges. Between the two of us, we really only need one phone.
First night we are there, it WSD’s me, a truly annoying occurrence. I had my laptop, but not a cable on me. I calmly went down to the front desk and explained what I needed to the clerk, and she let me go through lost and found, an Android charger was there, and that would suffice. A hour later, im up and running, had to incur $22 in roaming data charges because it wouldn’t register email over wifi.
I am at my tipping point after last night, 9 days later, its error-ed out again. My latest back up on my work computer, had to wait until the morning to wipe and reload my OS and restore my info. I do not want to leave BlackBerry and their works, as I am a loyal FanBoi…. but with these issues keep happening like any other unsatisfied customer I will have to find a solution that works for me.
It saddens me that under the pressure that they are facing to succeed and over come the adversity pounded on them by other platforms and analysts…. they are crumbling.
So it is fair to ask, when is enough ENOUGH? When can a loyal user be pushed over the limit and forced to go to a device he/she does not want to use, but has to for stability and reliability?
Have you experienced any of these? Come across a lot of frustration with 0s 7 devices? I am really hoping there is some sort of software fix RIM will push out to fix these constant JVM errors.
