    I have not rooted the phone and this must have been done by the previous seller. I purchased this off of ebay from someone.

    I personally would suggest you flash back to the current official Gingerbread firmware, which is build version EL29. Doing this will get you back to complete stock with fresh data like you pulled it new out of the box. This will help you narrow down where your software related problems are. It will also allow you to take the ICS update via OTA, which should be pushed to this phone very soon (within the month probably).

    Follow the instructions in this video:

    No apologies necessary, but at least now you that it's running a non-supported version of the OS, which could possibly be the cause of some of the odd behavior. I think it's still true that Android tends to be a bit more complex, especially when you're coming from a different user experience like BlackBerry.
