    Hi there,

    Just thought I'd say a quick hi, and that I'm a happy convert to Blackberry/the 9860. I just replaced (through some remarkable generosity) my dying Palm Pixi with a 9860. My primary motivation for getting a new phone in general was so I'd have something reliable to use for phone/email use, instead of the dying old toy, and a Blackberry, with its focus on battery efficiency and call quality, fit the bill perfectly. Though I expect I'll one day (when it's cheap) move on to a BBX device, for now, I'm really excited to be using the 9860.

    I've lurked on the forums here for a while (thus the ultra-low post count yet not-new registration date), and am happy to join the CB community

    I moved on to a 9860 after my dear Pearl 9100 started dying on me. I heart my 9860 a lot!

    I got lucky I suppose and never had an issue with the back button on mine... heard complaints from a lot of others, but mine has been problem free. Still loving it like the day it came out of the box

    Enjoy, it is a nice phone. Actually a little underrated if you ask me.

    it is a great phone, great display. I was hoping that I would get better at the portrait typing mode, that was my only gripe. Welcome, the Pixi was a nice little phone too.

    Yeah, I'm still not too quick or accurate in portrait mode yet, but I imagine it'll come soon enough. Yeah, the Pixi was a great little machine, and had WebOS survived, I'd probably still be on that bandwagon...but I think I'll probably stick around with RIM for a long time--I like their priorities of voice quality/battery life/keyboards better than what one sees in so many other product lines.
