    BlackBerry Phones

    Do you have one??

    Do you want one??

    If you have one, what do you think of them??

    My wife and I recently became BlackBerry owners.......I must admit a very good way to keep up to speed on your emails. I have my two personnel email addy's and my work email on it and I don't miss any emails any longer. Besides being a wonderful cell phone, we have the BlackBerry Curve II, does everything but take the garbage out.............LOL

    I don't have Cingular/AT&T but the gadget freak in me would love an iphone. A friend at work has one and it's pretty cool. Verizon has a knock off but I'd like to check it out before "upgrading" to it.

    I dont have a Blackberry but I have the t-mobile Dash, which is almost the same thing. I love being up to date with everything that is happening. I have my e-mail and full internet on there. Worth the little bit extra I pay per month of the service.

    I have a BB and love it. At first I wasn't sure I could justify the browser/email package, but with my department discount and changing around my overall plan I'm cheaper than before. It's handy.

    Man, I've been saying for a while that I'll NEVER get one. Now I'm three months into a 2 year contract with Verizon, and I would love to own a Pearl.

    They're something like $450 without signing up for a contract though. I could justify $150, but NOT $450.

    I was wondering what my options were, besides buying on ebay. They are badass little phones.

    They really are. I've known two people who have dumped the Voyager within the initial 30 days in favor of a Pearl. My wife fell in love with mine, so she now has one as well.

    I also have two personal email accounts, and work on mine. It's great to get my email right from the phone. The camera is great for a mobile phone, and with a memory card you can keep alot of info, whether it's mp3's, photos, videos, contacts, calendar entries, etc.

    Stop convincing me!!!!!!

    Main thing for me is work email. It is a cast iron bitch to get work email via computer when I'm on the road. Have to start the computer, sign in with this secure stupid ass code that changes all the time, etc etc.

    My coworker hits two buttons on his phone and has his email before I get the fuckin computer started up

    It's worth it man. Between that, and the BB messenger feature, it's sweet.

    I even surf and post on O/R with it!

    I have the Blackberry Pearl and very happy with it. Love keeping up with emails since I work long shifts. By the time I get home I am way too tired to check email.

    I haven't been able to get on this site on it yet....

    I have the BB 8830 World Edition from Sprint. It's basically a Curve on steroids. My only problem is, it has no camera. It dumped the camera in favor of a better interface and GSM-network capability.

    I love the free GPS, Google Maps, the capabilities, etc. I love everything about it. We should all exchange BB PIN numbers, or get ahold of eachother on messenger!

    Yeah, I went and got one today. I'm really wondering if I shouldn't have gone with the Curve for the full size keyboard, but everybody tells me to give the Pearl a shot.

    I love small phones, and the Pearl is tiny compared to the curve. I guess I'll just practice with the keyboard and see how I feel....
