    Most common problems include:
    1. continuous memory leaks, 
    2. long boot time of up to ten minutes, 
    3. lose of connection to mobile networks when they become idle even though the signal may be strong,   
    4. endless battery pulls,   
    5. frequent charging of the battery, etc.

    There are some causes. I know one of them. I saw one company distributes blackberry to all of the employees for messaging and emailing of their daily job activities, meeting agenda etc. May be it's very easy to do these and so some people may buy this like the corporate hr persons and distribute....

      Yes, the corporate world has been buying them in thousands for messaging and emailing. Over 200 million blackberry phones have been sold since the first device. Just wondering what makes people pay huge prices for a device with so many defects.

    Oh no. I was about to buy the keyboard Blackberry. One of my techy friends told me his company tested them and they are good. I still want one for business purposes to upgrade from my ancient one.

    I bought a Blackberry not too long ago and I haven't had any of the issues you listed... yet.  All cell phones come with their own problems, some worse than others.  My husband works in IT and has been through several kinds of phones and each had it's own problems.

    I have had colleagues in my last company who were issued with Blackberries, but they weren't impressed. They cornered the business market for some years but others have now caught up. Its ok to have secure email but if the user experience doesn't live up to their own iPhones then.....
