    Default How did you feel when you got your first BlackBerry?

    My first BB was the PlayBook Christmas of 2011. The experience was so great it compelled me to get a Curve 9350 to pair with it and an eventual Z10.

    Had an 8300. All I knew was I had never been able to so quickly text. I loved the control I had over the communication.

    To me that's the root of the BlackBerry. It's a communication tool

    Got the 9700 in the start of 2013, it was amazing. Instantly fell in love with the Keyboard and TRACKPAD

    My first BlackBerry was the Curve 8320 I was excited and awed at the same time. Still feel much the same every time I get the latest BlackBerry now

    Storm 9530, It felt like I had the most advanced piece of equipment in the planet. It must've been 2008-09 I can't remember and I've been with blackberry ever since. Hoping to get z30 soon since my z10 got blacklisted and got a refund via eBay.

    My first was the 9700 bought on November 16th, 2009. After coming from the Sidekick platform, my first impressions weren't good, but most of that was due to the learning curve. The keyboard felt cramped and I had to download apps from BBW that came stock on the Sidekick. Some of the messengers would log me off without me knowing. There were also a couple BIS outages around that time as well. BUT, I'm very, very glad that I stuck with it. It ended up being a great little device once I discovered the ins and outs of owning a BlackBerry.

    I stood in line for a Storm the day in launched on Verizon because, ironically, I wanted a proper touch screen iPhone-like device on Verizon. I had used a friend's hand-me-down pearl for a bit before that.

    I thought the storm was great, and really got used to the surepress keyboard (after I taped a dime to back of the battery....). Ah well... our expectations have surely evolved.

    In my mind, I had two first BlackBerrys. The first was the Pearl 8100. It felt more serious than the Sidekick 3 I had before it.

    I used it only for web/text/email/ IM, and had a different phone, on at&t for my phone calls.

    I liked my Pearl a lot, but when my at&t contract expired, I consolidated and got an 8800 as my all-in-one. While I liked my Pearl, I LOVED my 8800. It had such a good keyboard, looked and felt high end, and was just a great looking device. I used that for calls and texts and everything. So many friends thought it was nice, this was before everyone got an iPhone.

    The 8800 was what made me a BlackBerry fanatic. I've been a diehard physical keyboard user ever since, and am typing this on my Q10

    My first BlackBerry was a Pearl on T-Mobile and I bought it not knowing what it was or what it's capabilities were. I had originally purchased a Sidekick Slide but it had hardware issues so I took it back and they didn't have anymore so I picked the Pearl. I thought it looked cool... 18 year old logic haha. Shortly after, the G1 came out and I remember being envious of everyone who was getting one until I realized that adding the data plan to my account (don't know how I got on so long without it) unlocked the Web browser, YouTube, and Facebook capabilities that I wanted so badly.

    My first berry was a Curve 8330 in 2008. I traded up from an LG Flip phone.

    It was love at first sight. The keyboard won my heart. When I figured out how BBM worked, I was addicted. I even put a couple movies on the memory card with my computer. The battery in that thing was a beast. And then I learned how to take it apart and change the housing, so it went through many color changes.

    I loved that phone. It made me feel super connected.

    My first BlackBerry was a T-Mobile Pearl Flip phone. I had the first Pearl for a little while before had it. I can't really explain how I felt but as always I was amazed especially after opening my Z10.

    Bold 9000 in the Fall of 2008. Was so excited sat in the parking lot at the mall setting up e-mail and making a call. The phone met all my expectations and desires. Once the learning curve began all the extra functions and abilities came to the fore. Been a BlackBerry user ever since. Cannot imagine turning away.

    Was an Ericsson user the brown series at the time. Used the pagers from BlackBerry till the 957 mono chrome model came out, felt great , also had been using the Motorola products where the brick was the in thing. The ability to actually be out and always in touch was a phenomenal feeling at the time very few people had cell phones. I thought and still do that mobile communication is the best invention of this past century. BlackBerry has and will always hold the honour of being at the vanguard of integrating both text and audio into mobility and many decades later I still think that they are owed the proper respect.

    Professional and productive until the battery fried my 8530. That phone was awful.

    Much better experience with my Q10.

    Lol I wasn't that excited cause I wanted the treo from Palm. That said I was thrilled because I no longer had to use T9. I'm a heavy texter and this thing just made my life so easy.

    I was scared lol it was the pearl 8130 and it was very advanced compared to the flip phone that I had traded it for. I almost took it back but I'm glad I stuck with it

    I felt really good. I just changed my job from CTO in a pharmaceutical company to work as a consultant in a small company. I was previously using a feature phone and was initially handed a Nokia E61. Cool looking device made of Aluminium but it was soooo slow. On top of that I had to use BBC (BlackBerry Connect). NOT funny.

    So when I weeks later got a BlackBerry 8700 I felt great. It was fast and "just worked". Other phones using Windows Mobile 5/6 were awfull and until iPhone arrived BB was king.

    My first was the Pearl and then the 8310. That was my first real smartphone and began my travel down this crazy road.
