Having tried various PDA/phone combinations (Palm, WM, Symbian) and never being entirely satisfied with them, I'm finally trying my first BB phone. Well, it isn't quite my first BB, I had an old RIM device that worked on the Motient network a few years ago.
I'm very impressed with the UI on the blackberry, it's ability to multitask (at least enough to run some IM software), and the fact that it hasn't crashed on me for a whole week. Nice.

Welcome to the addiction...!!!
I have been using a 8700G and it has never crashed for the last three weeks that I've been using it. It is extremely compatible to any e-mail client and thus helps in saving time if you communicate maily via e-mail. Visit the FAQ's by Mark Rejhon and Stinsondog's BB tips and tricks. They are cool and will help you get the most out of your BB.
Cheers & welcome.
I love my BlackBerry/CrackBerry and will fight anyone who says different.
