    Firstly Hi

    I have to be honest and say I don't know why I have just got a storm 9500, All I ever do is call and txt but I did like the storm for it's looks and functions...even those I don't use.

    I have no doubt crackberry will help me to suss the thing out and keep a bit more hair

    Anyway i've just had it unlocked for a trip to the states and will see how it works for me..thanks

    I was like you once, not very long ago. Just phone calls and txt messages. Then I picked up my storm when it came out. I tried to fool myself, tried to tell people that "Hey, I don't know why I got this sexy looking, fancy phone... All I am really going to do with it is send texts and the occasional phone call."

    Here it is a few months later and I am looking for any app that could improve the use of the OS, or ones that are just plan fun and interesting to play around with. I am syncing everything I can to my BB, and my next step is going to be getting a lot of my music on the phone, and setting custom ring tones for my contacts... It really is a life-style, owning a blackberry.

    Welcome, and I hope you enjoy the downward spiral of blackberry addiction... It is pretty fun.

    Nothing wrong with not using all the features of the Storm, Rememeber this is also about convergence so you can carry less gear & still have the ability to make use of them when you choose to.

    I am a BB newbie as well. I have been using WinMo devices all these years and it goes all the way back to the XDA PDAPhone. I finally decided to jump ship and get my very first BB. I love the Storm.

    I was like that before I got my curve many months ago, Now I wouldnt dream of going back to a "normal" mobile phone ever again! Ive even got a spare pearl on standby just in case, and im now eagerly awaiting my storm to be delivered!!

    Just as DankJemo said a few posts up.... It really is a way of life!
