    They had the messaging devices first, then a messaging device with a headset for phone calls, then a phone. Which did you mean?

    Wikipedia has:

    Early pager models:
    These two-way pager models had thumb keyboards, with a thumbwheel for scrolling its monochrome text display. The first model, the Inter@ctive Pager, was announced on September 18, 1996.[

    Monochrome Java-based models (5000 and 6000 series)
    The 5810 was released on March 4, 2002.[4]
    5810 large monochrome screen 1900 MHz GSM/GPRS phone but headset required

    "Quark" 6210 medium 160x100 pixel monochrome 900/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS integrated phone

    The first BlackBerry with a phone was the 5810 which required a handset.

    PC Magazine review of 13 May 2002

    The first BlackBerry with an integrated phone was the 62xx series.

    This is a pretty interesting read as well: BlackBerry Planet Sample Chapter - BlackBerry Planet Web Support

    ...but probably doesn't answer your question as well as the posters above.
