Thank you for your oh so kind words
My post was mostly for those who will purchase a used BB for use on a prepaid card and discover the only real handicap is email on wifi. I use my BB all the time but fail to understand why this problem wasn't addressed a long time ago. Thought I might save someone hours of searching.
Your attitude isn't endearing my first use of a BB PHONE.
BTW my PlayBook is a BlackBerry device - guess it doesn't count.
