BlackBerry 8230 recalled by Bell already?

We don’t have all the details here, but we’ve confirmed that Bell has issued a recall on the freshly launched BlackBerry 8230. Both colors are affected, and while we’re not positive if every single handset is being recalled, we’ve been told it has something to do with how the handsets were flashed. We’ll update this when we get more information. Any Bell Pearl Flip users having any issues?

Thanks, to one of our ninjas!

UPDATE: We’re now hearing that customers won’t have to bother with returning any handsets. If you bought a handset with OS 4.6.1.162 you’ll get an SMS telling you to update your OS to the new build, 4.6.1.182. If you already have 4.6.1.182, you’re good to go. Stores are being sent updated units right away so sales shouldn’t be interrupted.
