    A salesman with a conscience? You might be in the wrong business. Sell, sell, sell, no refunds, exchanges only, sell, sell, sell!

    Here, put this little clip on your Pearl:

    Honestly, that was one question I forgot to ask. I was surrounded by T-Mobile corporate and others, didnt want to get kicked out.

    However, I just got off the phone with a friend at Cingular. He said they have product training on the Pearl on November 9th. His speculation is that it will be rolled out before the end of the year (meaning December). Yes, it will have the PTT function.

    FWIW - geek chics are hard to come by, dont change for anyone.

    from what i've heard, i kind of consider myself who they are targeting. i am a 22 yr old college student and a former sidekick II user. sounds like they are targeting the people who have the decision between the SKIII and the BB Pearl (that was my dilemma, and i chose the pearl).

    maybe this statement about cases is true in general, but i love cases. when i spend that much on a phone, i hate it getting scratched up and if i just throw it in my pocket, it does. true, i don't wear the phone on my belt, but i have a case that i clip inside my pocket. i was also disappointed it didn't have a case, but again, if they are trying to keep costs down, they accomplished that by not including a case.

    i'm also very anxious to hear about this unlimited data plan that should rival the sidekick plan with text messages comin in 07!!

    thanks for all the info from the meeting!! i learned some things i normally wouldn't have.

    Oh, and the other thing I asked about. Why there wasnt a screen over the rear speaker, instead of having to do the drill mod. They said that one of the complaints from the 8700 owners was that the speaker was too loud. Go figure.

    It will work on your phone only, unless you have a PC media player with the proper codecs [don't ask].

Unfortunately, it looks as if this same design flaw is going to be presented in the upcomming 8800 series devices, and I am going to be PO'd if I have to drill holes in another new BlackBerry battery cover.

    B: Why are the conveince keys mounted so low on the device? Does the RIM R&D department have really small hands? They are too inconviently located causing them to be pressed on accident at times.

    C: Video recording...When?

    D: Image Stabilizer for the camera? Come on now RIM, lets get on it.

    E: No case when they were first released? Whats up with that? I want a refund. Or they should have atleast sent us all free cases or let us take our receipts to the stores when they were released and get a free case.

    F: No protection for the lens?

    G: Whats up with the Auto Dim appearing on some Operating Systems and not on others?
    co-sign...btw i'm new to this forum
