    Prior to owning a BB 8830 World Edition I went through 6 Treo 700p's, one 700w and one 700wx (which is now for sale). If it hadn't been for the fact that my wife wanted to get a Pearl and give me the hand-me-down (8830) we wouldn't be having this discussion.

    Sorry it took so long to find out what true technology can bring to someone who really relies on on a mobile device.

    My thanks to all at RIM for developing the phone that caused me to die and go the the heaven of technology!!!

    HAHA, its crazy, when i switched, i had used Treos for years. In January, my friend who also used Treos, switched jobs, and got a BB on BES. He was so amazed with it, that he came to my house to show me how much better it was.
    After a few minutes of opening everything, leaving it open, trying everything i could to make it freeze or restart, i was sold.
    With a Treo, if you look at it wrong, it will freeze.
    Then when he sent himself an email from my comp, and got it as soon as the PC said sent, we went to the ATT store, for my first Curve. Now, i have 2 Curves, 2 Pearls, and looking for an 8820, in the near future!!

    I am still missing my Treo 700p. I want the Desktop software, SMS messaging seems easier to organize and can not get it to sync to Outlook which I do not like to use anyhow. I think it is like Mac and Windows debate on which to use. I love the interface of the BB but need time to figure it all out!

    Bogey, it sounds like you're well satisfied with bb. I have yet to get one but I enjoy reading about bb and will buy one someday. I've had Verizon Wireless for many years and am waiting for a good bb to arrive at Verizon.

    I do have a question that perhaps someone can answer for me. My cell phone from Verizon is an LG and not even a smartphone. I only use it to make calls but would enjoy being able to get my e-mail on my phone. Do you feel I'd be wasting my money buying a bb just to check my e-mail. I think I'd enjoy sufing the net but that is not really necessary.

    I wonder if the Curve will ever come to Verizon?

    Thanks for any advice anyone can give me. This seems like such a great and also very friendly forum where people are willing to help with questions about bb.

    I went through the same issue, except I changed from a blackberry to a 700wx....

    That lasted all of 3 days before I went and got my curve 8310.

    Welcome back to the light!!!!!

    Welcome!

    My 8830 was my first introduction into the BB world. Now I don't remember how I got along without it.
