So if you wanted to "avoid" the Z10 because it doesn't have a physical keyboard...and you couldn't get a Q10 because of "corporate" reasons (I don't think it's supported, but more I think there are several "conflicts" and/or problems, bugs, etc. with corporate software and applications)...what's the best option?
The Bold 9930?
I hate to ask, but what about buying one of these "other" BB's that's linked to another carrier and having it "unlocked" -- ???
I can't believe I am asking as it's so unlike me. LOL. I take the simplistic approach. I buy it, buy it right, buy it working and I use it. Period. LOL.
You won't be able to use another carrier's device. 9930 is your best option. In my opinion it's the best device they've made to date, especially if your company is still tied into BlackBerry Enterprise.
Thanks Roger. Yes, we are still tied to BES. Our corporate/home office supports Verizon, AT&T, actually everyone. They don't demand a specific carrier and they let us pick who we want. But when it comes to the device, I guess certain devices work with some of their apps, software, etc. and certain ones don't. Apparently, there's a conflict with the BB Q device, although they are "working on it" LOL.
Most BB users in the company have moved to the iPhone. When they announced a beta/field test, they had hundreds of people line up to volunteer. LOL. Once they approved it, worked out the bugs, and rolled it out -- there was a mass exodus from the BB over to the iPhone. Me? I am sticking to my BB. Period. I said the same thing about my Palm Pilot -- and I had the "7" which was the wireless/email thingy. LOL. No keyboard, but I was forced into abandoning that.
I am a loyal BB user. I bought the first model BB in the marketplace. I've been with it a long time and I like it. I am not looking for games, graphics, etc. I don't even surf the web a great deal on it. It's email, contacts, calendar, etc. That's it.
64gb's? That's big. I actually don't take a lot of pics, and I rarely shoot a video. I have people send me videos, more and more rare these days. Maybe I should just move them over to my laptop and delete them off the BB. As far as pics, like I said, I don't do a lot. Here and there. I have people send me some. I just don't want to "lose what I got" so to speak LOL.
I'm motivated to back this one up and get that new 9930.
About how much is a 32gb SD card? Should I get the Verizon brand one from Verizon? Thanks.
Verizon doesn't make the cards, as far as I know. SanDisk has usually been a trusted name, and while I've never had an issue with mine, there are others who have. Other brands are Kingston, Polaroid, Lexar, Transcend, etc. You could probably find them for 20 bucks and up. Maybe even less. Whatever you get, make sure it's a class 10, which will get you better data transfer speeds.
