    I wake up Saturday morning and decided I "needed" a smartphone so before anything else we stopped at the Verizon Store. I was totally open to either a Treo as I am a long-time Palm user or a Blackberry which are big at work (large hospital). After looking at all the (limited) choices, I ended up getting a Blackberry 8830 World Edition. As my subject suggests, I love it. I'm telling myself to be reasonable and sensible with my usage but I can see where it can get out of hand. Time will tell! Nice to be here!

    Welcome Bippy. I've had my 8830 for about two weeks now and I can't hardly put it down. I even take it and put it on the nightstand next to my bed at night(something I never dreamed of with the Treo 700p). By the way, very smart choice NOT going with the Treo. I went through a total of six of them in my first two year contract...never again. The first week or so with the BB was quite a learning curve, but I'm quickly adapting and absolutely love it. As so many former Treo users have said about the Blackberry...IT JUST WORKS.

    Glad you joined the forum. You will love not only things you never knew the blackberry was capable of doing but you will also get to know great people in this forum!!

    When you have down time you should also come over to the off topic discussions like the crackberry gal thread or the crackberry players club. Warm people & lots of fun.
