    How did you get your first BB?

    Advertisement



    well i couldnt find this anywhere so idecided to make it.(if its already done then my apologies

    This thread will be about the story behind how you got your first BB or your first introduction to the BB world, here's the story on how i got my first personal BB(non-work)!

    I was on Fido, and it was December 26th boxing day! i walked up to the future shop rogers counter and asked them if there were any incentives for me to switch from my carrier to rogers for BB. He said yes and proceeded to tell me that if i switched from FIDO i would get: BB Pearl $15 unlimited email plan,some voice plan for $20, NO cancellation fee charged to switch(FIDO and Rogers have an aggreement with each other and viceversa not to charge this) AND get a $200 gift card for futureshop and not have to pay anything to switch. well needless to say i got my first BB a pearl on December 26th,2007 and i havent looked back since, i have since updated to an unlocked 8320 curve (in less then 2 weeks actually :P )i was charged $140 from fido (cancellation fee) but rogers credited me $140 on my account!
    20 minutes before this i went to another rogers counter (in the mall) and was told by the lady there i would have to pay 99 dollars to switch over! i asked about incentives and she gave me a list of plans i could choose from LOL >_< go figure!
    as for the BB handsets so far i have no complaints! though it would eb nice to be able to make quickuse shortcut icons for frequently used tasks , like seperate buttons for sms,mms,email(s)

    I'm addicted to crackberries and the funny thing is i work in the social services field.....which include addictions o_O but i know of no agencies that will help us unfortunates :P

    Bought mine when my contract was up on my previous phone. Mail-In Rebates, warranties, and new 2 year contract, oh my!

    Lost my phone playin airsoft in the hills. Decided was time to try and figure out how these BB's work. So I switched to TMO since it was less for new service and a Pearl, than to replace my verizon phone as they wouldnt give me any deals at all even though I was with them almost 10 years. Then the day the Curve came out...I was all over it!

    lol..I know. Just being a smart ***.

    I had a regular, lame, early 90's Motorola flip phone that was doing nothing for me status wise, so an upgrade was in order. My contract was expiring with my current provider so I was free to do some shopping. I had heard that all the stars in Hollywood were using Blackberry's and I heard Jay-Z mention it in one of his songs, so I said F'it. If it's good enough for Jigga Man, it's good enough for me.

    sorry..was being a smart *** there too, but that's the gist of it.

    Re: How did you get your first BB?

    My best friend came over for my birthday (dec 20 2006) and was showing off her brand new pearl! It was love at 1st sight! I was talking about how much I wanted one all the time but since I just had a baby and wasn't about to foolishly spend money. On dec 28 my mom told me to meet her at the tmobile store bcuz she wanted to pay my bill as my xmas present. I walked into the store to find that she had already paid the bill. She handed me a bag, I looked inside n there was a beautiful black pearl!!! I cried and couldn't thank her enough! That's my story. cute huh.

    I stole mine from an 80 year old Tiajuana crack whore passed out in an alley... oh wait, we're talking about blackberry's? Uh yeah, I bought mine from an TMO authorized dealer for $150, no rebates required.

    A co-worker was showing off his 7250 (blue) which I had to trump with a 7290 (black w/color screen!) It wasn't long before I took the lead with an 8700! Needless to say, I lost my mind when the curve was introduced! "What...a camera and trackball?"
