The learning curve on blackberry products is more than you had on the iPhone unfortunately. The reward once you get used to it is th...
Torch 9850 or Bold 9930 (with qwerty)?
The dial pad on a Bold is a little bit smaller.
The Bold 9930 is going t...
iPhone back to Blackberry impressions
My fling with the iPhone is now history and I have a brand new 9850 in my hands...whoopi
First thing I did was go to Seidio's website and order a case, holster and mandatory screen protectors. I like their products a lot because you are not pulling off the case to put the phone in a dock every night. Except...there is no dock for this thing yet from Seidio
Like Stormsurvivor says, the screen protectors don't cover the entire exposed surface of the phone because the screen is all one piece of seamless plastic. We will see how this holds up over time.
Other interesting things:
-The lock button is now top center which is completely covered if in m...

Anyone trying the free RIM apps?
Shazam encore-Lots of fun and seems to work really well guessing the songs. Love this app!
I have always been a fan of Sim City. Sim City Deluxe is great nostalgia for me. The Sims 3 I just don't get how to play easily and for that reason I won't be playing it much
I still need to play around with the others. Vlingo is the best thing I got after I dumped Siri
A morning of inconvenience with delayed emails gets me all this. Nice gesture. If this happens a couple of more times maybe I'll get to try every app in AppWorld
Blackberry to iPhone impressions
Siri is cool and almost a smart@ss at times. Best voice recognition system out there but thats not saying much because I never thought much of these systems
-no crashes, some momentary freezes, seamless and fluid device
-fun device for the masses that can make everyday life easier and ...yea...that word again...fun
Anyone know you can't have iPhone and a desktop email clients running POP3 at the same time without issues? If both are set to check every few minutes or so, one of them will lock you out and not retrieve email. Outlook on my desktop is full of error codes. A...
Thanks. Excellent, practical thoughts. I was thinking about jumping ship to become an Idweeb, but will wait for a while. Still running my Storm 1 and have yet to see how an Iphone, or even a Torch 9850, would be enough of an improvement t...

No Video chat eh?
Not Upgradable to QNX ?

BB FAIL!! Storm 2 vs Torch 9850
This phone sucks. Someone said it best, Its a lot of fun to "get info from" but horrible to "input info into". The keypad experience is super duper duper wack,
I was so happy to know this phone came with SURETYPE, but its not the same and when in portrait mode that little arrow that opens and closes the keyboard is a disaster. It tests my patience when im typing I cant help in anyway not to tap it and close my keyboard, the keys are small and close centered. its a disaster = FAILED KEYBOARD.
I wont even start on Landscape mode. enough said - go go gadget...
Has anyone had any issues that I need to look for? The only issues I have had are compatibility issues with other apps I had previously purchased for the Curve.
