    So I got my first BB in August of last year because my fiance had one and the idea of BBM was awsome. I got the Tour and I love it. Well she just got a new phone and got a Palm Pre. I am upset about this and for some reason I don't look at my BB the same now. I am sure I will get over it. I am just venting and thought the BB community would give me some support to stay with BB even though BBM is rarely get used anymore. I will hate having to send SMS text to her all the time now. It sucks having to go to the contact, hit the BB button, then scroll down to SMS. going to have to find the app that CB posted that will make a quick link for it.

    Thanks for letting me vent.

    There is an option to set the left key on the phone to compose an SMS. So when you hit that button it goes straight to your contacts and you just click on her name and it goes right to the message. Just so you know. It's much easier

    but I love the Tour. It's been the best phone I've ever had.

    My GF has a moto cliq (android) so I have gtalk installed on my Berry which works quite well. Well, when she uses it. She still sends me SMS most of the time Anyhoo, I'm pretty sure the pre has gtalk so you two could use that instead

    Yeah she was already told about the Gtalk option. Still isn't the same. We will give it a try though. Thanks for the support.

    Whoops, forgot to mention that the gtalk app is made by RIM and integrates with the OS. With homescreen dialing off and gtalk installed the "G" key becomes a shortcut for gtalk. Much like the "N" is for BBM. And when you're signed into gtalk it will show in the application switcher as well. You can also set all your profile notifications up for it.

    Same here bro. Mine won't grasp the difference between a device for messenging and one for apps.

    My wife went from a Curve to an iPhone and neither of us have a texting plan. We now use Yahoo Messenger and it works a lot like BBM.

    Her 30 days are not up. She just got the phone today. I am still holding out hope that she misses the BB enough to go back. I guess we will just have to wait and see. I installed google talk and see what I think.
