    Here in Oz (Australia) BB's are a little slow to take off. We are an IT support company and only recently clients of ours have been asking about Blackberries. We did our first BES install about 6 months ago (I still have nightmares) and they all got 8707's. Held off myself for a while, but in the end couldn't resist the lure of the Pearl and the awesome BES Express deal. Now that I carry a Pearl around, HEAPS of my clients want one. I've done 6 BES installs in the last 6 months and more are on the way. I've even had clients that want the Pearl as a phone only! Some don't even bother with a Blackberry plan - they just like the look and the simplicity... (Drives me mad! How can you have a BB and not go for the functionality!) Our company became addics so fast and we're like born again Christians when we go to clients' now - we can't go on abouot them enough. Alsmost all our new connections are Pearls. My only gripe is the lack of 3G, but it's a small one... By faaaaaaar the best PDA / phone I've ever had...

    First BB... only went for it because of the size and ability of the machine, but dont think I'll be switching away from BB now. Love it to bits.
    Only down sides so far are not being able to display HTML emails, and err... err... not being able to display HTML emails!!!

    This is my first BB. I never thought to have one but work wanted me to have a phone and the Red Pearl is what they chose. I LOVE it. Now my husband wants one

    Thumbs up Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I probably wouldn't have looked at a BB if it weren't for the Pearl, I'll admit it! It's even thinner than I expected, wow! I'm impressed.

    I also will now be looking forward to the Curve, which looks to be almost as thin. I love PDA phones, but the size is out of date for a lot of them.
    Phone junkie! I've tried all types EXCEPT Blackberry! So I'm a BB Noob, please go easy on me, LOL!! I now have 3 Pearls, I guess that means I'm officially an addict?

    End of rant. Great support board here!

    Or try this OS. http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ers_4_2_a.html

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    The Pearl is my first BB. I'm really into flip phones but i couldnt get away from the fact that the pearl is so light for a pda. My friend has a treo and it is much heavier than the pearl. I May have to stick with BB from now on.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I am not going to say it is my first blackberry but it almost is. I bought a 7520 because I was with Nextel and got seriously hooked on the Blackberry.....only Nextel sucks (at least in my area). Less than 2 weeks after getting my first Blackberry, I switched to T-mobile and got the 8100 and I couldn't be more happy.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I alway's wanted a blackberry but I loved my Nextel flip phone's so much I never made the jump. Well when the pearl came out I could'nt resist, so not only did I change from flip phone's (10 years of nothing but flip's) but I also left my beloved Nextel after 6 years. Now the 8800 and the 8300 are calling out to me.

    First time BB user. I was waiting for such a time as this when a solid PDA/phone melded with multimedia functions wrapped in coolness. I can't go back!!!

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I am a new BB owner (its still in the mail, bought it online). Im really looking forward to using it. and Yes i choose to purchase my first BB because of the Pearl. I also did research on it a bit and spent time browsing this site to read what users thought ----> they love it!!

    Im really impressed with the members here how everyone is SO friendly and helpfull!! ...unlike alot of other forums (sports and car related etc.)

    I do have one question...
    Ive read all about different OS for the Pearl. Such as Italy and Rogers. Do i need to load one of these into my phone? What do they do and which is best? (Ive bought a locked rogers Pearl)

    Thank you!
    Shane

    First off Shane Welcome to the Stacks!

    To answer you question, No you don't need to load one of the newer OS's to your phone. I would actually wait to do any real tinkering until you get use to the pearl first. Play around with it for a week or two and keep researching here on the forums. I'm not sure which OS the Rogers Pearl has out of the boxm but it should be just fine for you until you get the "bug" to start tinkering.

    Everyone seems to be enjoying the Newest OS from Rogers actually. We aren't seeing as many bugs as the Italy OS. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask. I hope this helps.
