Great, amazing forum here- must say at first.
I'm a student from germany and came by chance to the Blackberry's, my friend bought a cheap one on ebay... think it was a 72xx... and I was captured.
Now I have one, too ...and a 7130 and a 8700. With patience and luck step by step I upgraded
At this moment I'm using only the 8700 and its a great mobile
Before that I was in a contract with Vodafone until last month and owned one of the HTC-devices. I don't miss it anyway although many functions reduced. Think, less is more and with this forum you can pimp it with no barriers.
Now I'm with no cotract + an used Blackberry and happyer as in the "Vodafone-times"!
