    So this past memorial day I had the worst technology day in my life. Meaning anything I had that used electricity and fed me info decided not to work. My DSL was down, Cable was frozen, and my digital movie library decide to just not work. I spent the day on the phone with tech support from india (god i f***ing hate that).

    So anyway... my Nokia 6133 flip phone was the only thing working.... that is until my temper got the best of me and I took it out on the Nokia. A firm grip in both hands and *snap*.. now I was out a phone too.

    So after a talk with my friend Jack (Daniels that is) to calm down, the GF and I took a ride to the Tmobile store to replace my phone. Yes I hate Tmobile too but the GF had it and blah blah blah we all know how that goes.

    So The GF and I are looking at phones and I start looking at the flips. She walks over and says "you're not getting another flip phone." I ask why and she quickly reminded me that this was the second one that died in this fashion.

    I start looking at the one peice phones and the only one that looks like my meat claws could operate the buttons is the Blackberries. I talk to the salesturd and he says I'm due for and up grade and the newest blackberry would only cost me $100. Ten minutes later I'm out the door with a new Curve.

    So for the last couple of weeks I have used it only as a phone; because that's the plan I had. And I don't even use the phone that much. I have a 300 minute plan and I never even get near using 100 minutes each month.

    So I had this fancy *** blackberry and nothing to do on it except play brick breaker. Gay. Today I finally added the unlimited data plan to it and WOOWW!! I mean crap am I behind the times (and I'm only 26).

    Google apps including my mail, chats, and maps are all loaded. I get live Red Sox game coverage and that's frickin sweet because it seems to be a law here in the NYC suburbs that you can't show a Sox game, just Yankees. Which I don't mind watching because once and a while they get thier asses handed to them (Go Nationals!) Along with all the day's news and so much more.

    And now, just an hour ago... I remembered that I can stream Pandora to it. Holy fricking crap. I;ve only every used Pandora on my desktop. This is a whole new fricking world to me. I might have to change my underpants here in a minute I'm so excited.

    I first found this site looking for a couple wallpapers for my Curve and thought to myself "Crackberry?, these people really are way into these silly things". Now I see why!!!

    This is a great site to acompany my awesome phone. Excellent.

    Anyway. I just had to rant.

    So Hi everyone.
    My names Dean.
    And I'm a Blackberry user.

    Rock On!!!

    I pride myself on grabbing peoples attentions.
    And not in the "I wear black and hate life way".
    I do it by bring the room to life. And with a little help from my friends I can do it here too because everywhere I go in life I take over the joint.

    Sounds a lot like me! I hadn't really intended to get a blackberry; it was a very spur-of-the-moment thing. I don't know how I did without!

    Welcome Dean! Congrats! Also, go get the blackberry app world app if you haven't already, and go check out the ScoreMobile app. It rocks, and is a great way to keep tabs on sports scores, and its free. Enjoy your new curve, man.
