    I see very few BB's and I've seen none of the OS7 BB, they are as rare as iPhones in these parts.

    Both my cousin and I have one. Then while at work, a student saw me playing with it and said he has the same phone and then showed it to me. Another student told me his mom got one. Also saw another student showing it off listening to music in the halls.

    My school is full of blackberry's, I and one of my other friend have the new Bold (I was first ) I convinced my cousin and my best friend to get one who are both going to switch from iPhones when it gets released on AT&T, a couple of 9810s here as well, my sister as well is going to switch from her 9810 to the Bold on AT&T

    Southern Cali- none! I saw a girl with a curve 8330 (yes I acted stuck up and snickered and felt bad for her) ...and a couple people with a bold, but not a bold touch. No where. Mostly droids and Iphones. But I can spot a bb a mile away.

    At the University of Victoria, BlackBerries seem to be dominant. I've seen mostly Curves, some Torches, and the new Bold a few times as well.

    In Toronto, the BB is still the dominant phone quite handily, and I have seen a lot of 9810's and a few 9900's, but no 9860's. What I can tell you is that high schools are almost entirely BB's, I have 4 kids, 2 in high school, and they each have hundreds of BBM contacts and when asked what is preferred they will tell you that BB is the phone of choice for all the youngsters. My son's friend was the only IPhone dude and he dropped it and cursed it's shattered shell and now sport's a Torch 9810, say's he likes it much better.

    I think the **** times curve has been passed and RIM will do very well. As long as they keep pounding ferociously forward.

    I'm unique...nobody around here has one. For that matter, haven't seen another os7 device yet. People love mine when they check it out.

    Just wondering on the popularity of this phone. After being out for over a month now I am wounding, has anyone else spotted this phone being used by anyone else?

    I travel weekly and find myself sitting at a hotel bar or restaurant, a late night businessy environment. I see a lot of old Bolds and Curves but no one with a new one. A few strangers have asked about my phone. I let them play with it for a bit and they love it. Most say that they are due for an upgrade but didn't know there was anything new available ( in BBs). It seems such a shame to me that people are using these old phones thinking that they are the best BB has to offer.
    Hi buddy!

    Da easiest way to catch any 99xx "out on da wild" would be by using WIKITUDE...

    Check it out if u haven't downloaded it yet... I have met many people with 99xx that way here in China + HK...

    Paz!

    I live in Northern VA and work in DC and I haven't see one. Older BB's and lots of iPhones/Androids.

    I've had this phone for over am month now and I've only seen ONE other person with this phone. The lack of advertisements is a shame.

    Unfortunately, in my iPhone and Evo ridden town... I have yet to see one.

    Although I have let a few close friends and customers at my work mess around with it, and they all love it to death. You'd think it was the "new" iPhone or something...

    I wish blackberry's weren't confined to bigger cities, which is what I've tended to notice.

    Yeah I remember seeing a chart about a year ago that sort of broke it down as follows:

    East Coast (NY, DC, etc.) The dominant smart phone was BlackBerry.

    Mid West was led by Android.

    West Coast was predominantly iPhone.

    I have not seen one. I'm in the Houston area.

    It's a shame, really....I mean when I went to the Verizon store to get mine, they were trying so hard to show me the iPhones instead. Made me think they get zero commissions on selling BBs or something. (???)

    Not many people own 9900 in my surroundings in Moscow. But I'm actively promoting this thingy. So, two of my colleagues have already decided to buy the new Bold despite being devoted iPhone users. )))))))) RIMPIRE SPREADS ITS WINGS ALL OVER! )) Hahahahaha.
