Default The CrackBerry whore striketh again!

Please Login to Remove!

Well, I have a lovely 8700. Software is hacked to bits, and running on T-Mobile USA...

I decided that I really wanted to get some old school BB's to play with, as well as provide backup to my 8700, so I purchased a NIB 6230 and a mint 7730 off eBay today. I'm quite excited about receiving these devices. 6230 will probably be my outdoor/car work device, and 7730 will be my backup/vacation device since according to the seller it is unlocked (which of course will be tested with my Vodafone SIM upon arrival ;) ).

Most people keep their blackberry for years, and you're going to carry around 3???? Your title fits you perfectly

Not at the same time mind you.

Although, I may put my work SIM in one of them and carry two around one day just to trip people out. :P

I just want some variety, and I want to avoid messing up my 8700 as much as possible...

I will soon have three flavors... Blueberry, Grayberry, and Blackberry.

So with BIS can you have more than one device running at the same time with your email account?

Well technically - the person is talking about alternating blackberries with the same account. Using one at a time.

Not very much. I really only PIN with my Dad, my cousin, and two of my friends. They all know to SMS me or get me on AIM if I don't respond on BB Messenger or PIN in a decent timeframe. I'll probably also give them the other PINs so they can add them to BB Messenger.

Anyway, I'm not planning to switch that often. The 8700 is such a nice device.

I just wanted to be able to keep my keyboard even when I go to work on my car or whatever.

I guesse that could be useful. Something similar to a 7110g for phonecalls and txt and PDA use, and then an 8700c for email and pin and web

I use a 8700c and just bought a 7100g on ebay as a backup/weekend phone. Nice to have a little variety. Is it possible to have too may BlackBerries? I think not.

is someone saying there is something wrong with carrying multiple Blackberry devices?

I have and carry:

a 7290, a 7100g, and an 8700c. The 7290 is for my work email account. The 8700c is for my personal email exchange account. The 7100g is for personal and work phone calls from offsite and is used as the "oncall" device.

In addition, I have a second 7290, 7100g at the office. Each one is connected to an exchange account I use to monitor different aspects of my job. All together, I have 5 devices I carry at any given time, each with their own data and voice plan, all from Cingular.

I have a fanny pack for most of them and I wear up to three at a time on the belt loop, but usually just the 8700c and the 7290.

I like my Blackberry's and i couldn't be happier that RIM settled.

I'm not just an addict, I'm also a dealer!

...and no I am not kidding.

Each model has its own advantages.

It would be cool if Vodafone & T-Mobile (UK) could make their 'multisim' service compatible with BB, shame as it works with up to 10 devices/sim cards on one number! Think how useful it would be for a BB collector.Do any US providers offer the multisim service,just curious?

My 7100g will be here Thursday and I'll be double BB'ed. I agree with taylor, 2 sims for the same # would be awesome.

Unfortunately no, and that sucks weenie. I read up last year about how the multi-sim service works, and it is really cool.

If it was available here, I would get a 850/1900 GSM hardwired car phone that I could use with a second SIM.

Multisim would make life a little easier. I like the idea of having one device hardwired in the B'mer. A TRUE carphone.
