    Hey stackers what's going on. I hope all of you are doing good. Well I first heard of bb when the curve came to tmo so I'm not as informed on some of the old phones. I know some of you have been their from the start. I am wondering where would you guys go for info on updates. Also I was wondering how you felt when color was introduced to the bb. The biggest update I have waited for was 4.5. and I want to read your guys history of bb. What got you exited to get a new bb what features where never before seen on a phone and made you oooooo and aaahhhh like I did when I heard about youtube on a bb. I am thankfull for pinstack and all the CRAZY Stackers we have now but let me know about your first experience with a bb(prefer to hear about old old models). Sorry so long. Thanks

    Well, I've seen BB for a long time now... But it was out of my reach. Then I moved back to south America and here they were not available.. Like two and a half years ago it finally came here to Colombia. But the prices were really high... So I started to save up for it. Finally over a year and a half ago I did the jump to a BB. I don't look back. I know I made the right choice. Most of the people here will tell you that once you go BB you don't want anything else. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    First BB was when the original Pearl came out for T-Mobile back in '06!!! Loved the unlimited capabilities that the phone provided. Just recently upgraded to the Curve, and this phone is perfect, with the T-MO 4.5!!!!

    My first bb was a 7100T when it first came out. I also had a 7230. No where near the features that the blackberries have now. I have had so many diffrent phones but always come back to a berry. I've switched 3 times this month. And have finally settled with a red curve that I just got today. The red storm theme by ***********.com looks awesome on it. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I started with the 7250. Just a basic BB with a phone. The themes were icon only. It was a bit bulky but it was a great phone. The old trackwheel was great. Then I moved to a 8703 which was an upgraded version of the 7250.

    Since the 8703 i have used the 8830, 8130, and now 8330. I have to say I like the curve best out of the three i have used recently. But the 7250 was a great starting point. Just sweet and simple.
    "T-Dub"
    T- Mo: BB 9700, 8900, 8220
    Sprint: BB 8330, 8830, 8130, 8703, 7250

    But there's a beautiful view of the end of the world from the pier.....

    My BlackBerry history:

    2002-2003: 950 (blue 2 way pager with AOL and AIM access). Used until AIM transferred its Mobile Service to the SideKick and other phones.

    May-June 2004: 7730 (black flat pancake shaped brick LOL). My first color screen BlackBerry. I had to exchange it after only 14 days because of the signal. I hated holding the thing to my ear as a phone and the backlighting was horrible.

    June-October 2004: 7100t, my introduction to SureType. I went thru 3 of them due to a faulty radio on the original unit. The first replacement was delivered to the wrong address by UPS (it would arrive 4 months later and I sent it back). The second replacement arrived on time.

    March 2005-January 23, 2006: 7105t, my all time favorite BlackBerry to date. I went crazy when I got this little guy LOL I learned how to upgrade the OS, install themes, apps, etc.


    The USB port broke on the first one in late November 2006 and I ended up paying out the nose for it because I got an out of warranty fee charged for it sweating while being sent back. Just 6 weeks later, the trackwheel locks up on the second unit. I was not slapped with any fees this time thanks to the fit I threw in a TMo store the first time and threat of cancellation if it happened again.

    January 23, 2007-May 6, 2008: 8100, the Pearl that almost got sent back for an 8800 or a SideKick 3 LOL

    That's because my thumbs almost could not adapt to the small size of the keyboard. I had to make the painful decision to keep that phone and not exchange it for an 8800. Took me a week but I made the transition from the comfy 71xx series keypad LOL I went thru 3 of these also due to OS crashes and reboots.

    I did pick up a SideKick 3 for a second phone and would flip back and forth between the 2 when I felt like throwing the 8100 at the wall.

    May 6, 2008 to present-8120: My 2nd favorite BlackBerry. I thought the 7105t was the best BlackBerry I had ever owned until I got my hands on this little wonder. Blows the 71xx out the water. MP3 player, media card support (same as the 8100), WiFi, etc.
    My next BlackBerry-8220: Flip version of the Pearl series.

    7250 then the 195 flip, then the 7100i and now the Curve. Can't wait for the Javelin to hit Sprint.

    1. 7230 (twice), my first BB and actually the first BB model with colour screen. 16mb, a pretty good device to learn the RIM OS on.

    2. 6230 (twice), a B&W 8mb workhorse, fast, agile

    3. 7100t, my first suretype device. I was (and still am) disappointed with the speed

    4. 7290 (twice), 32mb without the weight of multimedia; fast and strong

    5. 7105t, T-Mobile's improved 7100, but still toooooo slow

    6. 8700g, excessively pleasing to the eyes and ears, a lot quicker than the 71xx but not as fast or stable as the 72xx and the 6230. If the screen was visible in direct sun, I probably would have kept this one.

    7. 8100 Pearl, not to my liking although they sold a zillion of them. Too fragile and looked too much like a cellphone. Keys were too small, screen was too little, and access times to retrieve anything from a microSD were s-l-o-w. Small enough you could hide it in your ear canal.

    Currently, I use my trusty 7290 -- I'm into PIM and phone use. If you're into messaging, writing, being organized, keeping and tracking information, typing with a QWERTY, there is nothing in this universe stronger than a 7290 BlackBerry
