    Default I'm New, I have a Pearl, And I'm (somewhat) Proud

    Hi, I'm new and like my username says I own a Pearl 81xx which was a hand-me-down with a pay-as-you-go SIM card from 7/11 I'm looking into trading-up but I might wait until after the BB10 announcements on the 30th (which, coincidentally, is the same week as my birthday *nudge*). And right now in the 'Similar Threads' box are several threads about the BBPearl and they date back from 2007-2008.
    And Pearls are very nice. A 1 1/2-2 day battery life on a busy day and it lasts for about a week if you use it as a watch.
    Oh and I'm from Toronto eh?

    The Pearl was a very popular device in it's heyday, and is still capable within its limitations. My bro loved his and gifted it at least once, that I know of. My wife had a 8130chance Pearl to start with, but has moved on. Welcome to the CrackBerry Forums!

    Welcome to the group, a little jealous as i love the SureType keypad seen on pearls, Make sure to keep your trackball clean. Any questions send me, or almost any other member a PIN message or whisper.

    Welcome to the club. Pearl is one hand smartphone. The suretype is awesome. The battery life is good. I ever owned it at 2009. Pearl 3G at 2011. And if you enjoy the suretype, I think you will miss it when you jump into blackberry 10.
