    I love it !

    The phone just seems to "work" if that makes sense.

    The OS seems smooth and straight forward, I haven't upgraded yet but probably will before I load the device up too much.

    The screen is fantastic. Everyone who has seen it agreed inc two iphone owning colleagues.

    The form factor is perfect for me. Again one of my iphone colleagues even said he preferred the size of the Curve.

    Oh and the push mail, well where has that been all my life ! Im sat here with the laptop and BB and I didn't think for a minute that the BB email would come through at EXACTLY the same time as it does on the PC !

    The apps ive installed so far seem very good:

    Vlingo
    Viigo
    Google Maps

    The phone does everything I need it to do and looks great. I really don't think I will grow bored of it as quickly as I have done with previous handsets.

    Anyway, as you can probably guess, Im quite a happy chap.

    EDIT I think the phone may be faulty ! When I plug the headphones in there is a horrible buzzing distortion noise and crackling. Tried a different set of phones and its the same so maybe an exchange is in order ! I also read somewhere on here of similar problemsfound to be faulty headphone jack.

    Now im a bit sad.

    You certainly picked a good Berry to be your first. All top of the line smartphones have their strong points, but it seems that Blackberry has combined all or at least most of the best features into one device. Congrats on your new Berry.

    You guys like viigo? I've had better luck with a tin can and a string. Nothing seems to work right.

    Welcome to Pinstack! Congrats on the new Precious.. I mean BB.

    Viigo is a nice app and the new BerryBuzz is really fun!

    Sorry to hear that, I haven't heard that about the 8900. But yes, if its not performing exactly as you want it, I would most definately take it back. Im sure its an isolated incident, another one will probably work flawlessly.

    You must have just gotten a bad one because mine works great. Good luck with it. You've chosen a great device.
