Well, I've been a BlackBerry user for two weeks now. I have a BlackBerry Curve 8900 (previously a Sony Ericsson W910i) on Orange UK, and I'm very happy with it so far! I'm just having trouble at the moment trying to get it to use my home wifi, but I'm sure I'll figure it out.
As a little bit of background, I work for my local government authority in IT Services. I configure BlackBerries on a frequent basis on our BES and Lotus Notes servers (our main devices are the 8700 and 8100).
Many people asked why I didn't want to get an iPhone. Well, I didn't want to leave my carrier (does that sound silly?) and I absolutely can't stand touchscreens =[ And, well, I already shelled out for a 16GB iPod Nano.
Despite all this, I'm a Mac user at home, and I'm doing okay with PocketMac, though I do have my MobileMe account as the main email on my BlackBerry, and my calendar seems to stay synced too! It's excellent with the Facebook birthdays plugin for iCal.
I look forward to posting on the forum, and hopefully, though I'm young and inexperienced, I might be able to offer some help at some point!
