    I used to be a big Palm fan...but their OS needed a major overhaul like 5 years ago and it never happened. So when I finally decided to get an all-in-one device rather than trying to fit both cell and palm in my pocket...I went with a bb pearl rather than a Treo. I'm so glad I did! It's so much more usable and the OS works - not a patched together old beast. I'm definitely converted too!
    Glad to see someone else from oregon in the stacks!

    pdxberry I am a former Treo user as well. I'm glad I moved to a Berry..mine would crash all the time and the Bluetooth sucks as well.. I now have a $300.00 alarm clock since the treo is on the nightstand. I hope you enjoy your new RELIABLE device.

    Re: Glad I lost my Treo...

    Hi, I can sympathize with you. I am on my 3rd Treo (all replacements for my original one) because they crashed, hummed during phone calls, etc. etc. The 3rd replacement turns itself off whenever it gets lightly tapped -- this is quite annoying. So, I am ready to jump ship and get my first Blackberry. I am looking at the 8820. Is it available yet? How much? And which carriers will provide service?

    Thanks,

    Sara

    Re: Glad I lost my Treo...

    Nice story. Welcome to stacks. I love my pearl too. I didn't review it either, it's the 1st mobile i've bought that I didn't read a review on prior to its purchase.

    I had a treo before I upgraded to the 8700g. The treo doesn't even come close to Blackberry.

    Re: Glad I lost my Treo...

    I am stuck!

    I have a Treo 700w through verizon that I primarily use as my main phone.

    I also have a Pearl through tmobile that I use mainly for email and music.

    Needless to say, Blackberrys are so reliable its not even funny... Treo always crashes but I know I will miss my touch screen!!! I'm under contract with both services for another year or so but I am debating to sell one of the phones to terminate my contract and stick with just a blackberry on the provider I decide to keep.

    I really thought I'd miss the touchscreen on my 700p. But honestly, after a day of using the Pearl, it hasn't crossed my mind since.

    I definitely hear you on that, the pearl is a breeze to use.

    Fellow Portlander. Eh, well I'm pretty much in Portland. Vancouver, actually, but eh haha.

    Welcome to stacks.
    I'm quite the newbie and I didn't know much about the pearl either.
    I just knew I wanted one and so I searched on craigslist and bought one from someone else in Portland.
    Glad to see other Portlanders (or the SW Washington and NW Oregon area if you prefer) with blackberry pearls.
    I love mine. Never had a treo. I've never had a PDA before. It's awesome though.

    Cheers.
