    I wanted a BB for years but kept convincing myself that "i dont need all of that" while secretly being envious and jealous of BB users. I finally jumped out there and got my first curve, sunset red 8320 and it was love at first sight and I REFUSE to go back to anything else. When I think of the phones that I've had recently I wonder how in the **** did I get along w/out a Berry??? I am TOTALLY hooked people. I want to upgrade to the bold really soon but I am not getting rid of my curve.

    Well last year i reeally wanted a berry. I was with sprint at the time. However there was no curve with them at the time (i think) & the world edition berry didn't have a camera, so i ended up getting a pearl 8130. I loved it until i lost it about 5 months later. Then i got a sidekick with tmobile which was stolen, so a month later i got my curve 8900. & i have not regretted it, & definitely not planning on losing it lol.

    I wanted a smartphone and decided to get the Nokia E71x. I only had it for 3 weeks, and after 6 hrs. of light use it would beep for low battery then die. I took it back to the AT&T store. The other 3 phones in the store were defective. It was impossible to set up email on them.

    After spending 6 hrs.in the AT&T store and trying all the phones, I decided that I wanted a Bold. I love it.

    Hey everyone. I think it would be pretty cool to see how everyone got there first blackberry.

    I got mine after I bought an HTC 5800 and I had to keep getting it replaced. Stupid windows mobile. I then thought I would try a curve and I instantly fell in love with it.

    Now how about all you guys?

    Wow, i'm coming from Windows Mobile too, nah the last was the iPhone, i got bored of windows mobile after had the htc touch pro, hd, and a old qtek, then decide to change my OS, and tested the iPhone, was a great device the last one, but i hate the fees of it and the "NOT MULTITASKING SUPPORT", so i decided to buy a BlackBerry Bold and i just get in love with it!

    It's like a crack!

    I had a Razr v3xx and really liked it a lot but I was getting into text-messaging and I have never like the T9 method. So when upgrade time rolled around I decided to give BlackBerry a try and got the 8310 Curve.

    I immediately fell in love with the curve, but it didn't have everything I wanted on it so I took it back and got the Bold. Now I know I only thought I was in love.

    BlackBerry bold - Now this is love!

    I was forced into it!

    Well socially at least. Slowly slowly I stopped getting sms's from friends (like jokes, announcements and so on) and realized it was because they were all on BBmsgr. Ultimately I ended up getting a Bold but I still use my HTC Touch HD as my primary device. Lovin the BB and this forum.

    I used WM for years and years and finally got tired of it. All the hype of the Tour sucked me in and I have loved every minute of it.

    Storm ads from Verzon drug me in. I was a WinMo user for many years. I love my Storm and could never go back now.

    I got my first BB (8830) last summer. I was using an i760, had a second line, got bored, and went on eBay. I used it for a bit, then closed that line. I still have it, and it works great!

    Then last fall, I got bored again, and now I am the proud owner of a Storm since 12/24/08. My next upgrade comes up this fall, and while I'm not bored yet, Storm 2 IS coming...

    Started out with the Treo 650 without data. Went to a 8703e, then went back to Treo 700p, then went with the XV6800, that was a crappy phone. Then I officially went to the Curve. Since then I have had the Storm, and now the Tour. Will never go back to a Palm or WM device again.

    My Razr was on the verge of dying. I was holding out for a 3G smartphone from T-Mobile. So after I got back from vacation, I went down to the T-Mobile store and checked out the BlackBerrys because they were the only smartphones T-Mobile had at the time that didn't suck (7/08). I played around with the 8320, fell in love with it and bought it then and there. I then got an 8900 after I got fed up with my 8320 hourglassing every 5 minutes. Now I'm waiting for the Driftwood because I need 3G for tethering and the better keyboard is going to be nice to have.

    Had a Treo 700. After a night of too much drinking my gf and I we were in a huge fight, and she wouldn't stop yelling at me when all I wanted to do was sleep. So I had a buddy come and pick me up (I was in no shape to drive) so I could get some peace. Well she wouldn't stop calling me. I eventually got pissed and just threw it out the window, over a bridge, and into the river (Perfect timing). Why I didn't just turn it off? I still wonder the same thing...

    But the next day she came with me to get my Storm, and everything was all better.

    Looking back on it now it was a great thing because I love my Blackberry so much more than that Windows thing. I will always have a BB now, just waitng for that Storm 2 to come out.

    The Samsung SGH-A707 I had I got tired of. The whole flip phone thing started to annoying and I was wanting a smartphone. Therefore, I bought a Curve 8310 last September and it was my first Blackberry.
