You want us to convince you to stay with a Blackberry.......

NJBlackBerry 05-20-2010 09:10 PM

It should be much better than the previous 400 attempts by Microsoft, right?

Mill1978 05-26-2010 04:22 PM

I dont need any convincing but......I would like to be able to use my phone without having to reboot it everyday!

NJBlackBerry 05-26-2010 04:24 PM

Clearly you've never used a Windows Mobile device.

I don't have to reboot my BlackBerry every day. Or every week. I see you have an 8320. How much free memory do you have (Options / Status will tell you).

Mill1978 05-26-2010 04:39 PM

I have a storm 2.....I've had a pearl, bold, storm1 also

NJBlackBerry 05-26-2010 04:42 PM

Oh. Your profile says 8320.

Mill1978 05-26-2010 04:47 PM

yea I havent updated it in a while

The BlackBerry Kid 05-27-2010 07:51 AM

The storm is a problem in itself.

the 2 or 1.

i have never had that problem with a blackberry.

the windows ones you have to do that everyday and they are slow as anything and i have no patients for that. i want my phone to work as fast as i do, and be able to keep up with me. my BlackBerry does that. i looked at the W.M. motorola Q, it was so slow when i was juts testing it out that it was aggrevating me....save with blackjack and others.

I was a Treo win mob user for years. Even run the BBConnect service on it for quite a while. Corporate use mostly so not much experience on media or a lot of third party apps.
Email/syncing and browsing worked as they should. I don't recall ever pulling the battery. Don't recall taking it to my admin for os upgrades either. Must have been lucky if i believe the horror posts i read about win mob handsets.

I say go for it. Give it a try and see how it performs for you. Maybe compile a little review post after you had it for a while.

BBF is blackberry-centric so one should expect that the median would skew towards BB handsets and solutions. Don't let that stop you though. Give it a try and let us know. Good luck.

I agree, give it a try and see if you like it... I have recently tried a Droid, a Palm Pixi, and am now playing with an iPhone...

I have NO interest whatsoever in trying anything WinMobile but it might be for you... You never know until you try... If you don't like it, BB's will still be here and available for you to buy...

And the first new Windows Phone devices will be ready by the end of the year.

You don't like the Pixi?

have you tried an Android device with the Sense UI Like the Droid Eris? I think you may like that better than the Droid.

LunkHead 05-27-2010 09:41 PM

I like the Pixi.... It's a sweet device... As a matter of fact I still have it... I am waiting on Verizon to get the HTC Incredible in stock and I am gonna try / play with it... Right now I am toying with an iPhone 3GS...

zerog46 05-27-2010 11:04 PM

The Incredible is pretty sweet, a buddy of mine has one, i want to pick one up but there are none to be found. From what I understand they have a screen shortage.

That's correct. Samsung makes the AMOLED screens and they're causing the delays with the Incredible. The Incredible will ship again on the 16th from what I am hearing.

I am looking forward to June 4th for the HTC EVO.

LunkHead 05-28-2010 07:44 AM

The HTC EVO also looks pretty sweet.... I only have access to Verizon and AT&T so I won't be able to play with it.... Boohoo...

I also might have to play with the iPhone 4G once it's released.... I don't know... So many kewl new toys and so little fundage.... LOL

Mill1978 05-30-2010 06:32 AM

Ive had a droid and liked it....The only problem was the lack of enterprise server connection at the time....My co worker has the Nexus one and it is way faster then the storm 2....lol he let me know it every chance he gets too!!!

LunkHead 05-31-2010 03:13 PM

The Nexus looks nice.... I don't know why the decided to add that stupid track ball on it... It's really not necessary...

jsconyers 05-31-2010 07:23 PM

I thought the same thing, but a friend of mine has the N1 and loves the trackball on it. He says it is easier to edit text with it. For example if he misspelled a word, it's easier to scroll to the point than to touch the screen to the exact point.
