    Hiya from the Land of BB. After 19 years of owning numerous RIM/BlackBerry devices (still have my original 957 installation and user's guide & CD!), and although I doubt I will be able to contribute, I figured it was time to join the CrackBerry Community. I've been lurking in the background for many years and appreciate all the knowledge here within this community...saved my backside a few times! I am by no means technologically inclined, but rather very challanged and usually on the hunt for information... Thanks to All... Fade to Black

    Hello to everyone from the Chicago, Illinois metropolitan area.

    My former employer provided BlackBerry models to us circa 2006. When I retired in 2009 I liked the BB so much that I bought an 8830 followed by my current 9930. I just purchased a Key2 LE and am attempting to figure out Android (presently, I'm still confused!).

    You're correct...I was wondering why the keyboard appeared upside-down!

    Android is usually corrected with 180 turn and iOS with a 90 turn. Since you’re here at CrackBerry we’re proud of technological solutions as such compared with our sister websites AndroidCentral or iMore which lack our sophisticated humor. Again, welcome and hope to see posts when you need those witty answers.

    Hi everyone from Dallas, Texas. Long-time BB user but new to the forum.

    I don't know the model of my first BlackBerry but it was one with the little trackball that you could click to select things. After a few years I moved to a BB Torch, which I held onto for way too long (I still have it and it still works!) before it finally just got too old (Facebook app quit working, Twitter app barely works, couldn't download a lot of my podcasts anymore) So I tried an Android phone (Samsung Captivate Glide, a landscape slider). The Glide was better (working FB app and I found Finch, a decent Twitter app for it) but it was still too old, didn't have enough capacity (only 2GB AIUI), and the USB port had broken and only been partially repaired, so it would charge but wouldn't connect to a PC. Thus, I couldn't root it to install even an unofficial update to Android 4.4. I wasn't really happy with it.

    Then I got moved into an office where I couldn't get a good cell signal (I have WiFi in here but needed cell service for SMS) so I decided I needed a phone that worked in the 700 MHz range (LTE band 12 or 17). So I went searching and found an unlocked BB Priv on eBay. It looked like a bigger, Android version of my beloved Torch with the same keyboard, it supported the coveted 700 MHz bands, and was a lot cheaper than a "modern" phone, so I took a chance and ordered one. Grabbed a SIM from a local AT&T store and (after a few hiccups and a little help from the AT&T store) was delighted to find I had cell service in my office again (band 17 as it happens)!

    I'm pretty happy with my Priv but the learning curve was pretty steep, even coming from Android 4.0 to 5. Luckily, I found this forum and discovered I could update my new Priv to Android 6! I did that, making the learning curve even steeper, but at least I had this forum to help me along! So with y'all's help (I couldn't resist throwing in a Texasism) I'm having a good relationship with my Priv that will hopefully last a few years.

    Hi there... I'm from Seattle, Wa. My first Blackberry was one of those blue jobs with the QWERTY keyboard. That was about 10 years ago. I then got an 8700G which kept until the lure of the Internet caused me to try an iPhone. I'm chugging along with a Priv now because Text is not going away and I need a tactile keyboard.

    Hello! I've been using BlackBerry since 2003 - the 7230 was my first, then on through the Bolds, the Q10, and now my trusty Passport. I'll keep using BlackBerry as long as they keep making them with tactile qwerty keyboards.

    Hello everyone! New to this site. Great information on here. I picked up a couple Classics for a sawbuck each from the Bay! One with a barely noticeable hairline crack in the screen and one that was "Android locked" as stated by the seller. Using the "10 attempt" method that I discovered on this site, I was able to unlock the mint condition Classic. Swapped over my sim from my iPhone 5s, disabled iMessage, and powered up the Classic. Wow! It came to life in all it's glory with all functions functioning! It's even now listed on my VZW account, with all ID numbers displayed, as my new device, and then promptly informing me that this device is eligible for an upgrade! Thank you Crackberry for all the fantastic information. Btw, FYI, both Classics are Verizon branded phones.

    Hello Everyone, Long time lurker and long time BB user. I am from Vancouver, BC. I have owned a variety of BBs including Bold 9900, Classic, Tablet, Priv and now the proud owner of a new Key2 (purchased 2 days ago).
    Does anyone here know a BB repair place in my hometown? Like a cellphone shop or an authorized BB repairer?
