Don't be hatin'


Have you seen how fast Samsung Jack is, I was really surprised. My last WM5 phone was T-Mo SDA, even that was OK, but Jack is pretty damn fast and responsive..

I switched because my Wing broke and I was eligible for another phone so I went for it (got a great discount on the Blackberry). I like my Blackberry and all ... it's fine. It just seems pretty plain compared to the things one could do with the WM6. I loved the way it remembered things I typed, so during an e-mail/text, I would start typing and it would suggest words or phrases that I use. It would also do this for numbers that I had dialed. I loved the way the e-mail was more set up like Outlook so I could have separate folders and/or sort by sender, rather than everything listed together in one window.

Totally agree. WM6 has so many nice features that BB is missing. One of the things I hated with BB was that I could not see if the number was in my address book or not as I was dialing. But you get used to it all. There are people who can't afford to have their e-mails arrive few minutes late.. So BB is the only way to go.

T-Mobile has the 3G Dash; that may be more to your liking.

I believe you have 18 days or some period where you can try the phone and return it if you are not satisfied. I hope it applies to upgrades. My guess is you will get used to BB sooner or later.

BB will show the number dialed as in your address book but you have to actually dial it for the name to show.

Exactly, that's a problem. I hope RIM fixes this issue, it shouldn't so hard to just add real time checking.

I am looking to trade my Unlocked Pearl 8120 with Samsung Epix, I should start a topic about that..

Question

I'm a little confused.

Why would you call someone in your BB address book by number, and not by name?
You might already know this, but you can make a call by typing the first few letters of a person's name, and it will go through your address book automatically until it finds a match.
