    Re: what made you get it?

    I got my first BB for work. It gave me everything in the palm of my hand. Now on my second BB i use it for work and for personal. Just to be able to have everything right there, and for my phone to look that good, there wasnt any other option but to get a BB. Now i wouldnt own any other phone.

    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.....

    I got my Blackberry for personal use. Now that I have the Curve, I use it for everything from email to watching videos. I'm a heavy user of the calendar and tasks functions, which I synchronize with Outlook.

    I got mine to replace a Nokia E62. There were features on the Nokia that were better suited for PC. I like the e-mail and calender on the BB. Also like to check the forums to learn the tricks of the Berry.

    Re: what made you get it?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i bought my blackberry because of its funcality. I wondered what all of the fuss was about and when I got one, I found out. The mere mention that one has a blackberry makes people believe you are important. I like that feeling! I wanted a phone and a computer with me at all times and I do now with my bb.

    Re: what made you get it?

    I was tired of being ignored by my ex... so I found something to replace him... my BB

    I guess I can thank him... My BB satisfies in so many ways he couldn't.

    I needed access to email, mapping software, and the internet for work. I was tired of the problems which plague WM5 (at the time), and decided to try a BB. Haven't looked back since!

    Hi all !

    Being a sales promotion manager, I need to check my emails in every 15-30 min, according to market and demand I need to plan the new scheme and pricing, so it was my need to be in touch with my office all the time via emails
    Sitting whole day in office at computer makes me rude and crazy , then someone adviced me to switch to BB , and now I'm happy

    I can move anywhere , I get my emails on my handheld

    Thank you BB

    My desire to have the most beautiful, useful, perfect little device on the planet of course!
    And one that can do so much for me! I use it for business, personal and just about everything.
    I would NEVER go back to a regular phone.
    My BB rocks!
    It also brought me here to PinStack! What else can I say?

    I agree with you. Also, I had the Palm Treo for a while and hated it. So, I figured "What the heck, let's see what all the hype is about with Blackberry." Im thrilled I went with the BB and will never go back to Palm or any other device. Kudos RIM, kudos.

    Re: what made you get it?

    Funny, when I first started my job I asked for a Treo, but they wouldn't get me one, said "This is a BlackBerry shop". Since I had only "read" that the Treo was better that's all I had to go by. Boy am I happy that I was forced in this direction. I love my berry!!!
