    Default Tempted by a vein of nostalgia..

    So ah..

    I just wanted to say Im very tempted by nostalgia to get the legendary for the several weeks before bb10 comes out. Not sure why..

    I upgraded to an android from the 9900 but feel as if I should sport the 9000 in honor of bb10! Im on prepaid so its not a big deal as I dont have a contract..

    Anyone else feeling this odd urge?

    I am too! Current iPhone 5 user here, I never had a 9000 (only 9300 and 9900) but I've always wanted one, they just look so classy.

    Or perhaps ebay I guess? I am pretty sure I am going to.. They are only going for like 45-70 or so

    Soooo I picked up a trusty 9000 on craigs list..

    And now I have a few questions since its been a year or so since Ive been in the blackberry world and this OS is rather elderly..

    How would I sync my gmail with it? I did add the gmail as a new email but didnt see any options to enable sync via bis much like there was in OS 7..

    Also and this is really vague or bear with me.. But I remember there was a super helpful link I used to have on my old bb 9900 that someone put together with downloaded links for different useful programs like google maps, gmail, and bb maps, etc.. For the life I cant remember much more than, sorry!

    Great idea, it will be interesting to see how many other people will follow suit.

    I'm using my 9000 more and more this week. Yesterday I used it for 95% of the day and when I picked up my 9900 the keyboard felt huge.

    I hope so. Any tips or tricks? Or any sweet apps? Right now I am trying to DM to upgrade to OS 5 (its telling me I need to delete 4 mb more of space even though it says theres 761 mb free) , I might try my hand at hybrids too but if I remember right its not easy on macs.

    screenshot on updating to os 5.. whats the deal, why wont it update???

    I've kept my apps to a minimum on my 9000 & still need to shrink my os. My 9000 was new and. American loaded with os5.

    I'm unsure about macs

    I got a hybrid os and installed it with my friends windows laptop...

    Now Im having troubles with the BIS connecting, I wonder if it has anything to do with the hybrid OS because everything Ive tried doesnt help and tmobile was stumped.
