Mediocre phone at best

I'm with Virgin Mobile, and I have to say this phone is less than I thought it would be. The Blackberry OS is slow, and the 4G is inadequate, I find it often very slow.
The phone shuts off on me and requires me to often take out the battery and put it back in. I have a "defender" case on it, and to remove it from the casing and remove the battery, then put it back in and have the slow loading time to get the phone back up and running is ridiculous. The phone will randomly shut off at various times. The first week I got the phone, within 1 week I had to return it because I had a 'defective model'.
I regret getting this phone, as RIM is a failing company now. I will gladly switch to an iPhone or Android when I can afford to. Blackberry is a failing rip off now, and has terrible applications, like brutally bad. The only applications I have are Weather Network, and Score Mobile. The rest are mostly all inadequate as well. Blackberry was the phone to get the early millenium, now it's a failure and cannot compete with the good ones, such as iPhone, and Android smartphones.
