    OK, so I jumped in with both feet! I have been wanting a smartphone for a while, but they were all just too big for my tastes (and I wasn't sure I wanted to spend that much $$). But, last weekend, I was going to the local Alltel store to upgrade my phone. I had a RAZR, which was still good, but was due for an upgrade, so I was going to get a new one and pass my old one along to my fiancee.

    While I was there, the BB pearl 8130 caught my eye! The right size, and at only $49.95, I couldn't pass it up! And, adding the unlimited internet to my current plan only ran me an additional $15/month. Needless to say, I couldn't resist!

    Once I learned how to use the keyboard (which was a little frustrating at first), I was hooked! I have not used it so much for browsing, but I am self-employed, and most of my clients prefer to email or text rather than call. It is the perfect solution! LOVE IT! I am a true addict now! I went online and ordered a leather flip-open case, a new jawbone headset, and some memory cards.....I can see that I am going to go broke!

    Dolly13, welcome to CB!

    I always recommend new members read the 101 series. You can find a link in my signature. Also, don't be shy about asking questions. There is always an addict that is available to assist you.

    Enjoy your addiction™

    I've been hooked as well.

    I thought I was able to get away until the Bold came and reeled me back in.

    Welcome aboard. I am always buying something for my BB also, I guess that's why they call it an addiction.
