Goodbye, BlackBerry

Haven't been around much lately, but thought I'd stop in to say goodbye. On Monday, I'll no longer be a BlackBerry user. I started with a Pearl 8100, then switched to a Bold 9700, and finally to a...

Re: BES Initialization hanging at 52%

That sounds like a good way to determine if the problem is with the mailbox. I'll suggest that. Thanks for the idea.

BES Initialization hanging at 52%

Re: BlueAnt Q2 - can't transfer contacts to 9900

The q2 replaced a q1 which didn't transfer the contacts. I'm not sure how to replace the address book on the phone as I'm using a BES. I'll look into that. Thanks for the suggestion.

Maybe Bell is stronger in Ontario and Quebec, but not in the west. I think Telus and Rogers are more dominant out here. It would be interesting to compare maps showing towers and coverage.
