    I got the Pearl last year and will probably get a larger version the next time. It did everything I wanted it to straight out of the box, so I haven’t felt the need to download any apps. Um, wow, I am helpful.

    I have the Pearl and I really like it, very easy to use and navigate. I didn’t get it out of the box and go DUHHHHHH like I tend to with new electronics.

    I like.

      er, I have the one that’s not a flip phone. I tried out both and the keyboard on the flip felt weird.

    If you have a friend, even a special friend, with whom you share space, DO NOT under any cricumstances, leave all the fucking audio bleepy alerts on when this friend is with you! TURN THAT SHIT OFF.

    It was a sore point with someone I used to know, and one of the things I enjoy most about this person’s absence is no more chirpy little Eno sound widgets every few minutes.

    I guess there’s some trendy little google maps app that can auto update your location, like a passive geo-tweet. If you install it, remember to disable it when you don’t actively wish to publish your location to the intarwebz.

    Other than that, I remained vigilantly ignorant of how the thing worked. I’ve been holding out for an open source smartphone, by which I mean, it comes with openssh.

    Blackberries are in the Rubus genus. There are many species and cultivars to choose from should you wish to modify your auto sig.

    ho ho ho, i was just thinking “who do i know who has a blackberry and might be willing to spend $5?” because i noticed http://software.crackberry.com/product.asp?id=29830 and am interested in whether it is worth recommending to other delicious users.

    Put in pie. Add ice cream. Shove in face. No more pie.

    Got the curve last week. I’m watching your post with interest. :)

    I have the Blackberry Curve. I only use it for calls and texts, but I like it. I think the Bold is more visually arresting.

    unlocked blackberry strom which is quiet good in its performance looking forward to evolve
