BBM Group: e30performance

Postby AGriego » Mon Apr 04, 2011 4:26 am

Have a Blackberry? We have a BBM Group! It's quickly become one of the easiest, fastest ways to get a hold of members for some speedy answers. It's also a way of sharing pictures, calendar events, and lists (if you were setting up a meet, or even if you were looking to buy/sell something) that'll get to members right away. It's a small group as of now, but I would love to see it grow!

If you want to become a part of it, post here and I'll get your PIN and invite you to the group and add you to the list below. These members could invite you, as well:

Yoshi
m20_fever
toointoxicated62
Tom Trousdell (username?)

As I said before, it would be great to see this grow, and everyone with a Blackberry is welcome!

It's too bad I despise the whole blackberry interface, or I'd jump in on this. If anyone wanted to start a Boost/Nextel group I'd possibly start carrying my Boost phone around again. Otherwise I'll just stick to my dumb phone on Verizon.

I've really never had a problem with either of my Blackberrys (Blackberries??)

To each his own, though.

Again, if you have a Blackberry, post here and we'll get you in the group.

I technically never had a problem with a Blackberry either. I almost bought the Storm when it first came out. I liked the design of the phone, but hated using my friends. The interface just isn't for me. They must be doing something right though, because most of the ppl I know that have them say they'll never own another phone. I don't even like the interface on the ones that DO have a real keyboard. Eh, as you said, to each his own.

I can understand that. I'm one of those people though. I'd take my Blackberry over an iPhone just about any day.

I am not gonna lie.... I want an Iphone. My mom has a $100 gift card that she was going to give me to use at the apple store so I think I will take that. I have played with blackberrys too though..... if someone wants to give me one.... now that's a different story.

Old man, please.

If your only experience with bb's is the Storm1 then I can see why you don't like them. That phone was a disaster, even when running OS5. I went through 6 of them, and had to do battery pulls daily to keep it running ok. I upgraded to the Storm2 as soon as it came out and have never been happier. this phone is as good or better than an iphone in almost every way. Iphone has a better screen, that's about it.

I've used a handful of BB's, not just the Storm. Didn't like the way any of them worked. I think you might be downplaying them though by saying "as good or better" than an eyephone. My old Verizon XV6600 (or was it VX6600? I dunno) did everything the eyephone does/did/whatever 4 or 5 years before Apple paid HTC to put their name on it. HTC does make some great phones, but there's nothing special about the eyephone over any of the others. btw, try pulling your eyephone battery daily without paying Apple $400 to do it for you. :wink:

Yep, add no expandable memory or sd support to the list also. Running operamini my storm2 was faster at loading any website than my buddies Iphone. Honestly, other than screen resolution I haven't found anything the iphone does better. The only phone I would give up my s2 for would be the Torch if Verizon got it.

Blackberry's have never been popular this side of the globe.

I have a Windows Phone and it's awesome.
