    I was a little late to the game. Im Canadian, so we never got the original iPhone here. I was the first person in my school to have an iPhone 3G. I was also first to have an iPod so I was kind of pro-apple before it was cool. What was funny was EVERYONE had a BlackBerry and I would get made fun of all the time for having an iPhone. I didnt have BBM, I didnt have brickbreaker.. I didnt have what was "the best." I HATED it. All I wanted was a BlackBerry. A few months after I got it I was at an amusement park 300ft in the air on a rollercoaster and it fell out of my pocket. The next morning I went to Best Buy and spent $900 upfront on a BlackBerry Bold 9000 and was the happiest kid on the block!

    Never looked back since.

    Irony: Now I get made fun of for using a BlackBerry...

    PS. I had every intention of getting the 9000 instead of the iPhone. I worked at a mall and went to the Telephone Booth before my shift to buy one on launch day. They hadnt come in yet via mail from BlackBerry, and they were expecting them any moment. I went, worked, finished my shift and went back to get one, they still didnt have them. Pissed off, I asked if they had iPhones (they did since no one gave a flying f about iPhones) and I got one of those on a whim out of anger lol.

    My first BlackBerry was the 8100 Pearl. I laugh now because at the time that I bought it, coming from a Motorola Razor, I was terrified that I'd never be able to figure it out!

    Mine was the 8800 world edition. The only thing I didn't like was the track ball.

    8800 World Edition. That was the win which made me fall in love with BlackBerry. So much so that I ignored the heartache of the Storm.

    I switched to a Curve 8320 at the end of 2007, after having a T-Mobile SideKick since 2003.

    Ajay, that would be me. My first cell phone was a BB 6510, you know, one of the ones that had a thumb wheel on the side, physical keyboard, pull up antenna. I got it in 2004.

    My first BlackBerry it's actually Z10, I don't like antique BBOS and physical keyboard but I like the design of old BlackBerry Bold's.

    Not my very first cellphone, but a hand me down 8520 was my first smartphone. Sure beat a beat-up RAZR.

    My first smartphone was a BlackBerry curve (forget what model it was) on T-Mobile. I returned it and got a Z10. Been a very happy all touch BlackBerry fan ever since. Played around with other phones from other platforms but to me, nothing compares to BlackBerry, that's all I use now.

    I did. First smartphone was a red Curve 8530. Gosh I loved that thing. I think having a BB as my first smartphone probably helps explain why I'm still with them.

    I do wish I had tried the Pearl too. Always loved that form factor.

    My first cell phone was a Qualcomm PrimeCo Wireless phone with the push up ear piece. I still have it.
    My first BB was the 7100t on tmobile. I lost it in Sasebo Japan. I miss that phone. That click able scroll wheel was fast and sweet.
