    So, for all you who said Blackberry's aren't for kids:

    Lloyd Humphreys Lloyd Follows on from Gates

    This is why I need a Blackberry

    And please don't turn this into an argument... I wanted to leave but the Blackberry crave brought me back. So maybe we can all try and chat in harmony? I managed it on loads of other forums so I'm sure we can too.

    Yes, let's all be friends!! We should all get along well until certain people show up.....

    I forgot to say congratulations! Now you can start writing Blackberry software too! Im 14 also, and I could never even come close to doing what you did. Good Job!

    Lloyd, you've certainly earned a BlackBerry! You have to admit that many young people, heck, many older people haven't achieved what you have. You work and create in a tech environment, that's different from my son wanting one to impress his friends. However, if he was able to afford it like you, I would let him have one. You and he are the same age so I do know how unique you are.

    I think it's fine, as long as they know what they are doing and are responsible.

    As I said before, it is not so much about the age of the
    child, but that child's level of maturity and responsibility.
    Simple as that.

    Blackberries still aren't for kids.

    As with all rules, however, there are exceptions. But I maintain that the vast majority of minors, and from what my wife tells me about her AT&T customers a lot of adults as well, are not capable of managing the responsibility of a smartphone (not just BB's).

    EDIT: I forgot to add, congratulations on your success Lloyd.

    if you want to be flamed, i'll be happy to oblige. i have nothing better to do.

    but in seriousness, this is a talk you should have with your parents; who cares what a bunch of messageboard fanboys have to say?

    The thing I find most ironic thus far is this post! hahahaha

    You realize you are offering this child programming prodigy (Lloyd) a photoshopped avatar?! I am pretty sure he can make an avatar if he has accomplished those other amazing things!

    Branden, what is the deal with you randomly making avatars for everyone and their mum, then immediately asking them to tell you they like them?

    Surely as a computer prodigy, you understand the difference between someone who has a true gift for computer science, and gets a bb(and with a grant pays for it HIMSELF, perhaps) and a spoiled brat who wants a bb because "the people on the trains are looking at me cross eyed because I don't have one"......

    That said, GOOD for you! You must be proud of yourself, and so must be your parents......
