    Okay so this is just an observation that I've noticed since being on CB. Can BB users not be satisfied? What I mean is, everyone around here seems to be constantly looking to get the latest and greatest and is never fully happy with what they have. I realize that this is a technology forum and that it's everyones prerogative to spend their money on what they choose, but it seems like many are never satisfied. This isn't an attack or anything just an observation.

    Let's be honest, just having a BB is a privilege that many others are unable to have.

    So while I realize that everyone is excited for all the new BBs coming out, lets just be grateful we all graduated from dumb phones in the first place.

    First there is NO privilege to owning a BB.

    As to satisfaction, it is no different than anything else.
    Be it Windows, Mac, IPhone, our cars. We all want max
    performance, simple as that.

    And the dumb phone statement, WOW!! You do realize
    there is nothing special about your BB. No superpowers,
    no inherent sexiness, nothing about it that makes you better
    than anyone with anything else, don't you

    I was never meaning to be attacking etc. And what I meant by privileged is, many aren't fortunate enough to have things such as this. I wasn't implying anything.

    Anyway, it was just an opinion. Don't sue me

    I'm a greedy pig, I'm the guy that has to have 2 or more of everything. I don't think its a privilege to own a berry. I might sound harsh but if someone cant afford one, get yourself in a better position financially to get one.
    I had many other phones back in the day. Not attacking you at all....I just think the post is kinda pointless is all.

    Lol....

    I have to agree with the second part of this statement. I work hard to have what I have, and if I want the latest and greatest of everything, that's my business. I work my *** off for the things I have, and if I choose to be unsatisfied until I acquire the best of what it is I want, so be it.

    Should we ever really be satisfied with anything in our lives? How can we move forward if we don't strive for better?

    This is basically how all consumers of any type of product are...

    They want the best, the latest, the greatest, the most functional.

    This is not just BlackBerries, it is how our society is!!

    Not everyone goes with society and makes decisions based on wants... and the more power to them!

    wow, some of the responses have been harsh.

    The answer to your questions is this....NO. People always want the latest technology. In 3 months something better will be announced and people will want to buy it. This is just how the market works(Have something good, then make it better)

    I love my Curve, but will be getting the Thunder or eventually the iPhone, just because I like touch screen devices.

    it is just human nature..
    if info for another phone that has more features is released..
    of course we are going to want one!
    does not necessarily mean we do not like what we have..
    because obviously we do if we bought the phone
