How did I ever live without a Blackberry???

Dang I did not realize how handy these things are! I got one about a week ago and it is awesome! Mobile internet/email/IM/navigation, MP3, 3.2 MP camera w/flash that uploads automatically to Myspace/Facebook/etc. There are so many apps for this thing it is UNREAL!! What is cool is when I get an email on my blackberry I can delete it off my PC from the blackberry so I dont have to go thru all the BS when I get home and re-delete them. How slick is that? Im still learning about it but I could never go back to a regular phone. Gonna rig it up in the truggy like you rig up the audiopipes on the 4 wheelers. Run out of the headphone jack to an amp then to speakers!

I bought A Iphone 8 gig a few days ago. Nice phone. Not sure how long it will last. Still trying to figure out how to add ringtones without having to pay for them.

I've had mine for a while and it's aight. Wish the internet was faster, and my sausage fingers have screwed up the ball thingy to the point where it won't scroll left. My wife got an Iphone and the internet is stupid fast on it. I'll be switchin when my up-grade comes along.

i've got the Storm now, had the Curve. in ways i like the touchscreen better and in ways i like the Curve better. my sis has the iphone and with me on verizon we race all the time wiht the internet and 8-10 times mines a tad faster. alot has to do with the type of area your in and coverage your carrier offers.

i'm gonna switch over to the Bold once i get back probably.

sprint doesn't have the programming to use with the OS that the Iphone uses from what i hear.

but thats hearsay, i dont know for a fact.

i wounder if a jailbroken Iphone would work on the Verizon network? not sure about that one either though.

Download the Slacker Radio app. They have all kinds of music and you can skip songs. http://www.slacker.com/

I also have an app on mine so I can process credit cards for work and I have my laptop setup to use the internet through the phone. It's about the speed of standard dial-up, but it's better than nothing when you are in the middle of nowhere.

I would also highly suggest getting the external memory card. It wont store many pictures without one.

http://mobile17.com/ You can make your own for free. Upload a song, specify the time line and submit it. They edit the track then send it back to you in the correct file format. It can take a while to get it if you arent one of their subscribers though.

I got the BB Tour. I went on Myxer.com last night (supposed to be free downloads), and they had some good stuff but half of it was not able to be downloaded onto a Verizon phone. Gotta check into the Pandora or Slacker radio for sure. Sounds good.

I need that. I have the I580 from Nextel only because I'm so hard on phones and drop them often.

We use Quickbooks to process cards and they have an app for certain phones. They also have a bluetooth card reader and a reader/printer available.

One nice thing about the Nextels is that they are pretty close to bomb proof. The ones I've had survived a lot of abuse.

The touch screens are cool but I just dont see one working for me. I would have that screen looking like poop in a week or two.

The funny thing is that I don't even use the touch screen. I allways fold it open to use it.
