    Default New to Blackberry Community.

    Hi, My name is Tj and Nice to meet you all. I'm from Staten Island, NY.
    I'm new to the Blackberry (Offically a Crackberry addict) scene and this will become my future hobby, I guess you can call that. I was introduced to Blackberry 9310 (Prepaid by Boost Mobile) exactly a month ago. I never owned a cell phone before, but did own an iPod Touch, iPad 1, iPad Mini, Android 4.0 (cheap branded) tablets. I sold them all, never been satisfied with them. So I walked into my local Radioshack after work and told the salesperson that I needed a cell phone without a contract. So I was pointed to the bright colorful boxes of Net10s, AT&T Go Phones, and Boost Mobiles.

    Majority of the prepaids are these cheap looking Symbians and Androids. I knew I wanted something cool, cheap, and that I never had before and at the same time stand out from the crowd. I hate popularity, I guess I was never popular in school growing up so that stick with me. I always somehow manage to group with the underdogs and made friends that way. So I then at Radioshack, I saw tucked away near the window was the Blackberry 9310 which was marked down to $50 as part of the President's Day sale. The salesperson kept pushing me to get an iPhone or Android because his main reason was lots of marketshare. I explained to him that I wanted a Blackberry and he said the user experience sucks even the new BB10 phones. I did not listen to him and he kept insisting that Blackberry is not popular and should just go bankrupt.
    I knew this dude was a joke and as a customer I got my way, he got his assistant to ring me up since he did not want to ring me up. The assistant was nice enough to activate my phone and I walked out with my new Blackberry device.
    I got my first Blackberry phone on 2/20/13 at 6:38PM. I took it home, got into Wifi, got my settings and explored the Blackberry App store. I was amazed.

    Weeks past, I began to get to know the Blackberry OS 7 and got exposed to Blackberry 10 via Blackberry's website. Here we are a month later, my sister gave me her old Blackberry 9780 to just play on using wifi instead of throwing it out. Just today I bought an unlocked Blackberry 8310 from J&R Music World and it looks awesome.

    I've been lusting on the Blackberry Playbook and I do want one. I want to see how QNX looks and works. Also the New BB10 phones look cool and I want to play one at a local phone store.

    So I'm a new happy Blackberry user, crackberry addict that is. I finally found the platform I'm comfortable to be in.

    So you bought an old Curve. My roommate had one like that. He told me it was quite workhorse and that he liked it a lot.

    He now has the CDMA variant of what I have (I have a 9900, he has a 9930).

    How do you like your 9310?
