    Power out and still Pinstackin'!

    Advertisement



    Hey all, just wanted to throw a post up about how awesome Berries are! I have used one for about 5 years now, but yesterday and today I realize even more how cool they are. The power has been out at my house due to an ice storm, but I have continued to check pinstack as often as before. I have continued to surf the web, use bb messenger, and get my emails even without power.

    Not that there was a question, but I am definitely Blackberry for Life!

    Big, It IS that you can do it. That's one thing I like about them too, plus, if you're ever in a situation where an internet connection/wi-f isn't available (been there) you can still stay "in touch" via email, etc and browse the internet too - even order something if you're board. Good going! We missed the ice predictions overnight in Little Rock. Stay warm.

    Let's hope the power comes back on before your battery goes!

    Jblackfish - Thanks, we are staying warm. Got plenty of wood for the fireplace. We are expecting a little more ice today.

    A solar charger would be nice right about now. You CAN charge without actually having the sun if you have enough daylight at a window sill.

    I think this is the thread where I saw the one I got but those things are available many places and not too expensive to keep around just in case....

    Fortunately, the power hasn't gone out here from this storm. But the last time it did, I was on here all the time!
