    Your First BlackBerry, and your fave!

    Advertisement



    This is a thread that has been done a dozen times before, but there's always new Stackers (and experienced) that are interesting to get to know. Two questions: What was your first BlackBerry? And, what was your favorite BlackBerry, and why?

    I'll start: My first was the 7230, bought off of Ebay. It hooked me. My favorite is the 7290, because if it's superior PIM abilities and spread-out keyboard.

    First was an 8130 (Verizon). Second is a Bold (AT&T). I prefer the Bold so far.

    My first 'Berry was the 950. My favorite 'Berries have been the 7100t, 7105t, 8100, and 8120 due to portability, ease of typing, battery life, etc.

    I had a 7730 in between the 71xx and the 81xx and I swear I'll pick up my 7100t if I go through my 8100 and 8120 before even reaching for the 7730 again (horrible screen lighting and signal, pancake sized brick, etc). I still have my 3rd 7100t nearly 4 years after I got it, too LOL

    Not sure about the decline in quality with MMS as I never send MMS but the WiFi issue, I can almost be certain, is because of a lack of data plan. I tried to use WiFi on my 8120 back in September when my PC was down and could not get WiFi to connect.

    I'm a complete newb.... first and current BB is the Bold, but I'm already eyeing up the Storm I can't see myself ever going back to a regular cell phone again! I had to use my hubby's cell tonite to send a text mssg to someone and it was just.... plain and boring. I'm way too cool for that now! haha

    BlackBerry from here on out! I'm hooked!

    My first BB was a 8100 and i loved it, near cried the day she died. Fav right now is the 8900. Soon to be a Storm owner and maybe get the Magnum or one of the other next gen 9XXX berries.
    Device history: 8100 > 8320 > 8900 & 9530. Keep crackin'

    My first BB was the 8300 the day it dropped on ATT. Friend of mine was given an 8700 at work and was hooked so he pushed me to try the Curve. Everything about the BB just seemed to click for me and is the reason I keep coming back every time I try to stray.

    Favorite BB, so far anyway, is my Bold. I read all these posts about people having problems with theirs and I am glad to say I cannot relate. My Bold is solid as a rock, both in build quality and performance. Never dropped a call and the only time I'm not on 5 bars 3G is at my house where I have to deal with a measly 3.
