Default I really love my Bold

Please Login to Remove!

I have been a BB user for many years, have had many BB's, but I just love my Bold.
Things I really like:

Great sound. I listen to Moodio, Pandora, FlyCast, and Slacker and watch Slingbox and without the earbuds the sound is still great.

I turn off the Mobile Network at night and use WIFI for listening to NPR while in bed. But the best thing is that I still get my email even with the radio shut down while I am connected to my home wireless network.

I can type very fast on the keyboard. Some of you may think, "Big Deal", but at my age (61) it is a big deal to me. My grandchildren are amazed at my typing speed.

I use my Bold on BIS and love it. I am retired but I just couldn't give up my BB. I use AT&T Navigator, Google Maps, and BB Maps. I have installed the latest OS v4.6.0.247. I just installed a 16 gb MicroSD card, downloaded all the episodes of the Band of Brothers to it and the video is awesome!

My wife had a Apple IPhone for a while and was always jealous of what my BB could do better than her IPhone. No she didn't get a BB but a Motorola Ryzr.

I know that I am preaching to the choir here but I just wanted to brag about my BB Bold.

I don't blame you. I just got my Bold yesterday and already love it. I upgraded from curve 8310, which is a great little phone. Just not in same league as Bold.

I am also retired, but us retired folks have places to go, people to see and things to do. And we love doing it with our BB's.
