    new BB users because of Pearl?

    Advertisement



    I've been noticing that a lot of the posts in this forum are of Pinstack users with relatively few posts. Does this mean that the Pearl is bringing in a lot of new BB users? Would any Pinstack moderators have any observations about the increase in Pinstack members after the 8100 launch?

    To add some perspective, let's do a poll. If you now use a Pearl, is this your first BB?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ the BB 8100 is the first phone I've bought but I did have the 7100 because I fixed it up after someone thought it was broken .. And I loved that POS phone ..

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    The 8100 is my first BB - as I'm not a case/holster guy, I always found the traditional BB size to be a little difficult in my pocket. Also, I've been a staunch supporter of Windows-based (mpx200-220, smt5600, HTC 2125, etc.) from the beginning but have always wanted the email support that only BB can offer. Sending/receiving email is possible on the Win phones but certainly is not as seamless as I've seen it to be w/ BB.

    So far, I couldn't be more pleased with the Pearl and I wish I would've made the leap to BB service sooner. Coming from the traditional T9 predictive text used on the smaller Windows phones, I don't even mind the BB Sure Type that I'm sure is frustrating to hardcore full-qwerty users.

    Who knows. I would like to see the sell numbers for the Pearl. Here, everyone is still like "oh, what is that?" I have never heard of it.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I'm surprised at the ratio right now. I figured that there would be a greater percentage of new users, based on reading the posts.

    You need to change the Smilie for the "I don't own an 8100 yet" I'm not sad that I don't have one. I am sad that OS 4.2 is not out for the 8700 yet.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I'm not afraid to admit I am a new BB user because of the Pearl. I just never had a BB because I didn't want the giant brick in my pocket and really had no need for all of its functions yet. Now I have started my own company and the Pearl is very thin so I am all over it.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I am like alot of the new BB users in here that went with the Pearl because of the size. I had never been a BB fan in the past at all. I played with an 8700g when a guy from RIM came to one of the nearby T-Mobile Retail Stores and we all went for the training, and I liked the 8700 except for the size. I had considered getting a BB in the past just to see what all the buzz was about with all the crackberry addicts. When T-Mobile announced to the employess about the Pearl and we got our store demo in it was like love at first use. I fell in love with the phone. It is one sexy looking BB, plus had all the features I loved in my RAZR v3i, but had the e-mail capabilities I wanted. So I took the plunge and ordered me one since I had one more 40% initial discount left, and haven't looked back since. Even though I have only been using it for a few days I don't know what I would do without my BB Pearl. This thing is awsome. When I got my new BB in I started looking on Google for a discussion board that was dedicated to BB so I could learn more about it, and I found this site, and now I feel like I am at home. Thanks for all those that go into making this site what it is.

    lol. Point taken.

    Yup, interesting ratio. So far, about half of Pearl owners are new and half are loyal customers. Sample size is a bit small still, so if you haven't voted, we'd appreciate your input at the top of this thread!

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I'm now to BBs, and my wife is getting one now too. I think she is going to be a freaking addict with the email checking.

    You know what impresses me a ton about this phone, regardless of the BB functions, the call quality is as good as a landline for me. I've had a lot of cell phones, and have never owned one that sounded this clear and free of noise. I can make out people in the background at her work when I call her. Reception and clarity make this phone worth it regardless of BB functions. In otherwords, I couldn't be happier with all aspects of this device.
