Default First Blackberry...

Please Login to Remove!

After a lot of indecision, I ordered my first Blackberry. It should arrive tomorrow.

I'm getting a Bold 9000. I expect a steep learning curve and I want to try it out thoroughly in the first 30 days. I'm still tempted by the iPhone.

I'll probably be asking a lot of questions, so please bear with me.

Regards,

Ron, in Miami

The most important thing to me is that a device is a great telephone.

Other aspects are negotiable.

Wow your first BB since registering nearly 4 years ago!

I hope you enjoy the Bold. Lots of info can be found here on on BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ

My BlackBerry arrived today! My first reaction was "OMG, what have I done!"

As I'm getting into this, I'm thinking it's really neat.

I'll probably have a million questions, so please bear with me.

Ron, in Miami
