Loose Battery Cover

My son just bought this phone from T-Mobile. I noticed it has a very loose battery cover. I told him something must be wrong, and advised him to take it back. When he did, the person at the store told him they are all like that. I find that hard to believe. Is that so? Do they all have very loose, wobbly battery covers?

Activating an Unlocked TMobile Blackberry 7100T on Cingular?

I called Cingular today and asked them if I had my own device and I wanted to establish new service, would I be obligated to sign a two-year agreement and they said, "no". Having said, typically one would activate a Cingular branded device by taking it into the retail store and they would not have any issues, right?

However, I would like to establish new Cingular service AND activate an unlocked TMobile Blackberry 7100T on their network. Are they going to allow me to do this in the retail store? Also, I will need a Cingular SIM card. Will they provide that when I activate the device? My main issue is that I don't wish to be locked into a two-year agreement or I would just go ahead and purchase the newly released Blackberry 7100g fo...

7100g Bluetooth issue

I just got my 7100g a couple of days ago from ATT Wireless (Cingular). I am unable to pair with a BT headset. Tried Jabra 250 and Moto HS820. I am able to connect any other BT devices. I connected to an iPAQ H5455 and two Nokia phones. Just can't seem to pair with a BT headset. Any ideas anyone? Thanks in advance!

Mail Help 7100t

This is probably ridiculously simple, but if anyone can help me, I will be forever grateful.

I just got my 7100t and it can send email just fine. I still can't receive it. I went to the mail setup and entered my user name and password and according to the instructions I found, it should then ask me what kind of account I have, but it doesn't work. Maybe there's some setting on my pc I need to fix? If anyone knows, please give me some idea. Thanks.

Bluetooth Headset 7100g

I have a Jabra freespeak 250 paired with my 7100g. At home where I have a wireless phone system I get a great deal of static. I understand that.

But in my car which has no other bluetooth I also have terrible static.

Any suggestions?

Any other bluetooth headsets that are working well for folks with a 7100g?

Anyone know when the phone is coming out on Verizon. I tried the phone with Cingular. Loved the phone, hated the service. Had all sorts of sound issues. (See my other threads). Back to my Verizon service which works great, but missing the BB service, and hate talking on the old BB's. Been waiting for the treo 650 to come out, but would rather stick to BB than wait for my corporate IT to set up GoodLink. Any one have any knowledge of timing for a Verizon version or even if they are working on one???
