Goodbye everyone & 8100 :(
 
I just got a notice that I will be losing my "career job" by the end of this month.

That means I will also get rid of my Blackberry 8100 which I will put up on Ebay soon. I don't want to spend extra $20 per month for it. I know we not allow to put Ebay auctions here so I will only link you to my user name on Ebay. eBay My World - secrecyguy . I will just go back using a cheap cell phone.

I just want to say that it was great being here. I feel welcome here and be a part of the Blackberry "family".

I will continue coming here until I work my last day.

So after I work my last day, I will just file for unemployment, put my 8100 on Ebay, and take a vacation. I haven't took a vacation for a very long time. I will also finish up my college which I should be done end of this semester.

Now I am back looking for job again. It probably will be another year before I get another "career job".

Also the comparison chart will no longer be updated anymore.

It was great being here and I hope to come back here again someday in the future.

Well, thats a bummer!
Remember though, when one door closes, another one opens. It sounds cliche, but it really is true. I know this from personal experience.

Good luck in your future endeavors...

That just means that there's a better opportunity waiting for you elsewhere. Good luck in your endeavors!!

secrecyguy,

Sorry to hear what happened.
Hang in there.
Enjoy your vacation and it's a good thing that you can finish up school.
Just to let you know, your chart really helped me decide to get the BB8100.
I must've looked at that chart hundred times to compare the different units.
Thanks & Good Luck!!!

At one time, T-Mo did not require the data plan for a blackberry. You could still use your blackberry as a phone and have the calendar / address functions for the same monthly cost as a "cheap" phone. You might want to see if T-Mo will still do this. Maybe you could just go online and change your service and see if it works.

Good luck, sec! In all that you do.
Cheers!

Michbb 01-20-2007 12:53 PM

Yes Tmo Does allow you have the blackberry without a data plan.

My wishes to you Sec and your family.

As insensitive as this may be, am I the only taxpayer who's bothered by someone planning on collecting unemployment while on vacation/at college?

gziz 01-21-2007 02:31 AM

i agree with poo, im paying for this guy to live when hes fully capable of getting a job

MooseBerry 01-21-2007 03:05 AM

secrecydude, you take care of yourself, get straightened out with school and work, and we'll be here when you come back.

Take care! 8-)

For those in the US . . . I'm not aware of how unemployment compensation is handled in other countries.

1. Unless you're an employer (or an employee in a few select states), you don't pay an unemployment "tax." Getting huffy over a perceived abuse of your taxes doesn't make sense when you're not actually paying for the abuse in question.

2. Don't be so quick to judge. I have been employed continuously since 1977. Every company I've worked for in all that time expanded their workforce (enabled, to some extent, by my contributions) and thereby contributed more money into my home state's unemployment insurance pool. If I somehow become unemployed through no fault of my own, I'm damn well entitled to take advantage of the situation, at least within reason.

Everyone is entitled to unemployment if they have worked for a period of time. Unemployment is there to help you when you're no longer working. No one can say that anyone is taking advantage if they collect unemployment after loosing there job. He posted because he was no longer going to use his bb so why is he being convicted?

Things happen for a reason. You will find better things from this. Good Luck.

I am originally from the Los Angeles County but I am now living in Santa Barbara area.

I will move back to Los Angeles County in July. For now, I will work the last remaining days and than file for unemployment. I just do some traveling and visit different places in Santa Barbara area.

Your welcome! :) I am glad that my comparison chart help you out. I always keep updating it all the time with corrections and just recently did some re-formating of the chart so it will look more organized.
