Am saying farewell (sigh) to one of the best Forums I have had the pleasure of coming across on the web.
Well, my BB8900 is no more - the lousy Orange signal here in this part of the UK prompted this decision, and unfortunately no other provider could offer the same package with an 8900, so I have been forced into using an iPhone 3GS, which is a pretty smooth piece of kit until you try to use the (so-called) keyboard - which ain't a patch on the BB 'phone!
If my fingers were as thin as a matchstick, I'd be ok, but they are not!
Au revoir to the Group. (I'll keep my posting options open for a couple of days just in case there's a reply to this message to which I should respond.
