    I hope no one thinks I was serious. It looks nice but offers nothing.

    I went to the local VZW store to pick up screen protector for my Eris and the reps there were playing with the BB's. I just moved over from my Curve to the Eris and I forgot to bring my cable in and I am already out of power. I am not used to that. The BB did look nice but no thank you for me. I am done with the BBs for now.

    Verizon's been crazy a long time, I think. (I'm a Verizon customer just so you won't think I'm bashing a company without knowing what I'm talking about. )
