Default Old 9330, New Uses

Please Login to Remove!

I pulled my 9330 out of the junk drawer last week and charged it up. Given that the radio is turned off, but WiFi on, I was reminded how good the battery life is: it stayed on, mostly unused, for four days.

After a year using the Z10, the 9330 felt like a toy in my hands, but before long I was cranking out draft emails like the good old days. All the keyboard shortcuts came to mind right away, and muscle memory took over as I flew through menus.

I don't want to sell it (let's be honest; it's not worth much) but I can't get much use out of it as is. What do you all do with your old BBOS devices? Media player? Kid's toy?

Doorstops?
Only old BBs I still have are a 950 and a 957. Never getting rid of those.

I donate my old devices to charities that refurb and give to those that need them, either as phones or as 911 calling devices.

I've donated several old BB's and phones over the years to a charity that sends refurbished devices to Costa Rica. I think I'll keep this one around for fun.
