Have you ever owned a Blackberry phone?
My mom owns one, and its a price of crap
No im way too furry to fress the buttons
Blackberry = bad phone
I went through 5 or 6...they're garbage...tis why I have an iphone
Then iphone emerged.
My biggest complaints are the horrendous web browsing experience and when blackberry took away the side scroll. The only thing I'll miss is the key pad. Typing fast and error free without looking at the screen.
I agree. One of my biggest gripes with it over the years, the terrible web browsing.
Only cuz it is my company phone.
Now I carry that piece and my iPhone 5.
5 years ago, but as soon as I saw an iPhone for the first time in person, I switched.
It was my biggest mistake ever for phone choice.
On my second iPhone. Spanned 3 generations with my first and am not thrilled with my iPhone5. Apps don't fit the screen and I'd like my old 3GS to have all these bells and whistles. Awkward size.
I liked the keyboard. I'm getting used to the touch screen as I now have an iPhone for work and personal use. It took a while to adjust to the iPhone for work. It's better though!
This is why RIM is going out of business.
Blackberry stinks nuff said
Long, long time ago..
Yeah cuz the key board on the blackberry is always there and it's not a touch screen
Block- Hold the shift button and spell the word. The phone will dial the "letters"
Two major problems: when I have to dial a number that is spelled out, I have to find a land line to reference. Also the voice dial button on the side activates all the time and is extremely annoying. That feature also doesn't work well when I try to use it.
I said no because I don't own my work phone, which is a blackberry. Worst pos in the world. We can now get iPhones or androids but not until the blackberry dies. Others at work have dropped theirs in the toilet just said they lost it. My conscience won't let me do that. Grrr I hate that brick!
Yes, and I hated it. The keyboard and screen were too small and it was difficult to navigate. Have an iPhone now and love it.
I've never liked blackberries. Some people are addicted but I never liked the keyboard.
Hahaha. Really? The storm is the phone that set me against bb. My curve was fine, and my world edition was doing things no other phone on the planet could do when I got it. The storm screen SUCKED, and I got sick of having to pull the battery 8x per day when it froze (yes, literally, 8x per day)
"Crackberry" isn't a derogatory term in the way you seem to be implying. In fact, www.crack berry.com is an RIM fanboy sight. It evolved out of the idea that the earlier blackberrys (like the iPhones of today) were highly addictive and couldn't be out down (like "crack" cocaine). Swing & a miss.
...I could type twice as fast on my bb keyboard, and the bb OS autocorrect is INFINITELY more intuitive than iOS. BB was a good phone. Without it, iPhone wouldn't exist. They built the modern smartphone market...they just failed to advance and move to a more user friendly UI, & the market ate them.
Had a Blackberry Storm, it was my first touch screen phone. I moved up to an iPhone later, I still like the level of customization I had with my Blackberry versus my iPhone. I love my current phone now, but I will always like my Blackberry.
I had a Blackberry Storm. I thought it was great until the first time I used an iPhone, then I hated it.
Yes, proudly. For anything outside of web browsing, it was the most productive choice. Wouldn't go back to it though. Rather have all the bells and whistles next-generation phones offer.
I WISH the Army would do that so bad. I hate carrying two phones all the time
Nope. Went from my little Nokia to an iPhone 3 and never turned back.
No. Saw the little scroll ball on my friend's fall off. They are cheap
Only work issued ones. They suck.
Our government agency has switched to BYOD and Good Technologies mail client. Meets same requirements
I've had quite a few actually. They were great phones before iPhone. One of the few smart phone options before 2007. My work uses them still and I have a blackberry torch 9810. For enterprise email it's great. Military still uses them due to their security ability.
I had a blackberry pearl YEARS ago when they first came out In pink! Blackberry SUCKS! It was a pain to use the internet on it.
Blackberry? Don't you mean crackberry?
used to have a blackberry curve. i cracked that stupid plastic screen and replaced it almost monthly
I stay out of the berry patch. Too many prickers. The orchard is where I play :)

When you drop the last two it breaks the phone. When you drop the first one it breaks the floor.
My mom's employer has provided Blackberries since they first came out, so I have used all of the different generations quite a lot. I hate them. Compared to my iPhone and my dad's Droid, they make it much more difficult to surf the web and I'm always hanging up on people due to button placement.
I've had a blackberry for 9 or 10 yrs and they have gotten progressively worse over the years. I finally buried my last one when I got iPhone 5. Never going back to blackberry.
Isn't that evidence enough? You can't get SoH for Blackberry. Enough said!
Yes, and also a groovy 8 track player. Both are distant memories.
I've still got an un-smart phone. Waiting with baited breath to get the Galaxy Note 2.
Yup own one now its my blackberry -1 Pos
