Re: New Smartphone/Z10 owner - advice for BlackBerry

Horray for freedom! But tell me Grumpy, have you figured out how to use the dialing function of the phone better than I have?

Been working with the Z10 since it came out, and I love it. The email font is more than large enough. Web fonts work admirably, certainly better than the wife's iphone -- especially in reader mode....

Re: I tried. Really, I tried.

The font size issue could very well be a deal breaker for me. I've been able to deal with this on my 9900 by using the bold font on my email, and the Opera Mini browser. I'll have to see if you guys...

No speed dialing? That's not good -- especially without a keyboard.

Re: Will you purchase one?

Same, same.

The lack of 3g was a dealbreaker for me, as far as the Playbook replacing my iPad.

Can I use the 3g on my tethered BB 9800 to use the Playbook online outside a wifi hotspot?
