    So I used to be a Windows CE user I then got a BB 7250 for $5.00 You cant argue with that!

    After I got the 7250 I transferred my at the time current phone (LG 5450) to the BB. As weeks went on I started adding packages. Since I had a Blackberry, texting got much much easier so I had to get a texting plan, I was sending somewhere in the thousands of text messages every month. I then added email and web packages.

    My contract with Telus expired in June, I told them that I was very impressed and satisfied with the Blackberry. However, Rogers (my current employer) would offer me an iPhone for free and 50% off my final bill every month. (All employees have this.) I said Id be willing to stay with Telus if they offered me something sweet.

    Between you and me, I didnt want to get an iPhone; Im hooked on BB. I also didnt want to lose my Blackberry e-mail.

    So, I got a Curve 8330 for $99.99 Under one condition Telus gave me unlimited text for my contract term. :P

    Within two days the first one I got became very hot and eventually turned off and never came back on. When I popped out the battery, I could smell the remnants of something burning. At any rate, I took it back to the Telus store and they replaced it without a problem. They were very shocked to see that the Curve had this issue, they told me that it is usually a very sturdy / reliable phone. So now Im on my 2nd Curve.

    Ive been very satisfied with it, its had amazing battery life, Ive managed to go full 12 hour days listening to music, watching tv shows, signed in on MSN messenger, checking 6 email accounts, everything I want in a Blackberry.

    My plan includes unlimited data, unlimited email & IM, unlimited text, basically unlimited everything data / text / messaging, and then Im paying $40 for a voice plan. My total bill is about $60 a month. Keep in mind, Ive been with Telus for 5 years so theyve thrown quite a bit of free stuff at me over the years.

    Ive enjoyed reading these forums, they have helped me out greatly and I look forward to being a contributing member to these forums!
