    I'm just wondering, is it possible to connect to a old-fashioned BBS, by phone (not IP) from the BlackBerry?

    Feel free to call me an insane nutjob for suggesting it.

    A BBS is a computer that people connected to over a phone line that usually hosts fourms. It's how people with computers wasted time pre-Internet.

    OMG, you are bringing back memories of my old Commodore 128 and long distance tolls! My favorite BBS was called Herkimers Pond. Had a lot of fun on there.

    Back to the present, you can post on Pinstack via the BB browser.
    Never wanted to be a simple man...

    Like wise! I don't think a lot of people are, or better yet that anyone still has that!
