    I'm cleaning my office getting ready to move and I was digging through my "tech box" (box full of gadgets and chords). I found an old faithful. This started my love for BlackBerry.

    Do you have any old BlackBerries in your "tech box"?

    Yup, and every time I pull an old one out I have a need to activate it for a few days. Man, those things were built to last!

    Last time I pulled one out, this was the outcome:

    Wrong thread... - There may be a better discussion to post your BB Playbook failure.

    I started with the 7130e, moved away from BB to a Windoze phone, as soon as I found the 8330 Curve I was back, then a 9530 Storm, 9550 Storm 2, 9650 Bold, and now 9930/64G WiFi PB.

    Well, I got my first BlackBerry device only slightly more than a year ago. But since then, I got so hooked that I wanted to try different devices, to see how each device stacks up against each other. To see the evolution of BlackBerry over the years.

    In my country, the used phone market is tremendous, often I buy a device and try it for a period of time before selling it off. So I can't really take a "family photo" of the entire lot together, but I normally would take a quick snap as a momento. Well, except the Storm 9500, I got it of it the quickest, even before i could take a photo, so i grab a picture of it off the net instead. It was certainly an interesting device which I think was let down by the OS and processor, not the clickable screen.

    Right now I only have a couple of them which i really like left. But frankly, if i could afford it, i would keep them all.
