| | Convince me to keep my Curve without BES / BIS
Please Login to Remove!
First off, I love the Curve. I've done comparative analysis at a lot of phones, and for my needs, the Curve comes out on top every time. I looked at the Q, the Dash, the Blackjack, the JAQ4, etc... Even compared to the iPhone. I prefer a real keyboard.
I'm lucky enough to have a grandfathered Fido Unlimited Data plan. I can't remove this and use the Fido Blackberry plan because I will lose my Unlimited. (Yes, the carriers in Canada are really lame in this respect)
So, users out there who use the Blackberry without BES or BIS:
How is it ?
Do you replace the web browser ? It is not bloated to have two browsers ?
What do you use to check your email ? Can you still check a POP / IMAP account ?
Can you use the BB as a modem through Dial Up Networking somehow ?
What do you use as an RSS Feed Reader ? (with offline support)
What else is complicated / annoying about a BB without BES / BIS ?
I really really love the Curve and want to keep it, I hope someone can inspire me to take the plunge.
