I still love the Bold 9000
I bought one the other day for $50.00 off kijiji. Getting the Chrome Bezel and trackball replaced. I've had several BB's up to and including the 9900. I still prefer the size and form factor of the 9000 the best. I know all the restrictions with memory and battery life, but this was my Cadillac of BB's I used three years ago. Anyone else share the same opinion?Wolfpacal

I like the Bold 9000 because it has a trackball. I am still partial to trackballs. For some reason I feel like I have more control over the trackball than I do with the trackpad. I don't really want the touchscreen either. I do like the camera and screen resolution of the 9900. This may seem weird, but I also like OS 5. But I think that I am just old school.

I like Os 5 and the 9000 too. I prefer the 9900 and OS 7. But to be honest, I can do everything I want on either device. I text, email, call, listen to music, surf the web a lot, take pictures/videos, BBM and so on. Regardless of android, iphone, windows, palm or blackberry...I use my phone for the same things today that I did when I had an 8120 and none of the multiple cores or high density displays have changed that. I prefer the OS and keyboard of the BB bold models and I do love the 9000, 9700 and my current 9900.

9000 was my first BlackBerry, really good phone. I haven't really like any BlackBerry as much as the 9000 untile the 9900. Love the 9900 but still have a white 9000 that I fixed up for a 2nd phone. Besides the browser and low memory the 9000 pretty much still does everything very well!

Been on BB's since the early 6000 series days. Been on every significant series change since. Still have an 8800, 9000, 9800. 9000 has been my fav.
My 9000 was "retired" earlier this week and bumped for personal use by the 9800. The 9800 was my corp phone and was replaced, by my employer, by another "brand" (no, not "i").--

The 9000 is the best keyboard ever (well ok haven't tried the 9900)
@ comment about smartphone needs changing, I used rooted android for a year and a half before it broke and I was forced to go back to the 9000...
The only thing I can't do as well on the bold is waste time! I can't imagine how awesome the 9900 must be
Coupled with the PB, and I find it very productive. Also Delfteo has some solid OS's

The 9000 was my first Blackberry, and yes it was a brilliant phone. It seems out of all of my friends with blackberries that I'm the only one that prefers the trackball to the flat pad on the other BB's. But alas that phone died on me months ago and I'm now on the 9900.

Cool stories ! well, it is good to know that I am not alone with the 'BoldHabit'.....after a long time I finally gave up my iPhone and returned to the Berries, I drive a 29 years old car and there is nothing wrong with that, say the Bold feels like a good old swiss knife ready to take care of business and whanot.......'If everything seems under control, you are not going fast enough'

The 9000 is the phone I use When I go out to drinking.
I just wish it had more internal memory for apps. I need them for everyday task. If there was only some way to upgrade the RAM this would be my everyday phone.

I'm back to using my 9000 after dropping my 9780 and like it just as much as when I first got it. Can't decide on a new BB just yet so will continue to use the 9000 for a while yet
