    Thought I would start a thread to establish if there were many UK users of BlackBerry on these Crackberry Forums?

    I think I am in the minority vs our US counterparts, but it would be nice to see a few English, Scottish, Welsh or Irish BB fans out there.

    What BB have you got, what is our most popular Blackberry in the UK?

    Hi to all...

    Yes - It's becoming more widespread, but a long way to go yet!

    I think I posted this at the wrong time to capture people though! It's 1am over here! LOL

    UK (Scottish) BBer Here....not a lot of us about though.

    BB is becoming more popular now....they even have them in the shops now !
    When i first enquired about them a couple of years ago none of the phone shops had them unless they ordered one in especially for me.

    I've seen a few Pearls & Curves in peoples hands.

    Not many personal BB users here in N Ireland but those few that I have seen mainly have the Pearl.

    There are quite a few business users though. The bigwigs in my workplace have BB's with no internet access!

    You might find a lot of people get them supplied by their companies so maybe don't come on here to find outstuff as they have their own IT dept to look at them or a lot of people just don't use forums.

    There's definitely lots more out there now, I've seen 3 big billboards advertising the Storm recently, so Blackberry is definitely going to be a more familiar name with consumers rathen than just business people.

    'ey up! Another UK BB-type person here! Am using a Pearl 8120 on T-Mobile (bought it sim free), and one of my best friends has an 8120 on Orange. Other than that, my Dad is the only person I know with a BB. He has a Curve on Vodafone for work.

    Rule Britannia and all that

    I have a curve, I know a lot of business BB users in the UK, but not too many personal ones.
