    i'm an army veteran and now an army wife so my first blackberry ever was in germany and was the pearl. back then i didnt know of all the things a bb was capable of. i only used it for texting and calls...no emails...no apps!! but it was by far one of the best phones i have ever owned. now all my bb's are the best phones i have ever owned. what i do miss about the pearl that would have been nice to incorporate into the later trackballs and recent trackpads is that with my pearl i could have my settings adjusted so that when i received a call the trackpad would change colors and pulse to the beat of the ringtone. i thought this was so cool...but i still love my bb regardless. i actually was thinking of switching over to the dark side and get the EVO (only for a hot second). then i remembered i really dont like touchscreen. and i know bb's do everything i need and more. so i got my the blackberry bold 9650! i'll never leave bb!

    My first was the Curve 8310, which became surgically attatched to me for a good 9 months until its demise in February. My friend gave it to me when she upgraded to the 8900, she'd already had it for 2 years. I loved that phone like a child.

    I now have a Curve 8520, which is a good phone but I've only had it a few days and I'm still getting to grips with it. I have to say though, I won't miss the track ball on my old one at all.....

    Wow, what a bunch of BB noobs...

    Here's my first, the R957M


    Serial connector to dock, Mobitex service that you paid RIM for, not a carrier. At that time,, there were a few text capable pagers but that was one way and there was no SMS, so this was an amazing leap forward.

    Here it is compared to a Bold 9000:

    First BlackBerry was a 950. It was the size of a pager and ran on a AA battery. Don't ever recall needing to do a battery pull on the thing. Lol

    My first BlackBerry (and my current one) is the Javelin 8900. Came to it from the sidekick series, then went android which kicks **** OS wise and app freedom (mytouch 3G rooted running Cyans latest). But the batteries on android devices are garbage, to say it kindly.

    So with that in mind, and my BBM addiction, I'd have to say BlackBerry rocks (just not more than android)

    7100t. I sold it on ebay and I kind of wish I hadn't. I would love to still have it around just for the sake of having it.

    Curve 8330 is my current as well as my first BB. Knowing how much I love that thing, AND that its currently one of the lowliest blackberries out spec wise, I can't wait to move to something even better. Thinking about going with the newer Curve 8530 soon.

    I have the curve 8530, it is great. Just get a skin for it, because I to me, it feels a bit empty without making it thicker. Idk, the thiness just doesn't feel right in my hands, it feels perfect with the skin.

    I have an iSKIN. iSkin Products for your BlackBerry

    Mine is in a brownish-black colour. It looks quite nice!

    Otterbox cases are good too, they are just kind of pricey and look a little bulky.

    My first and only Blackberry is a 8310 Curve. I love it! I'm waiting for my BIS-service to be activated now, but it's takes forever. Hopefully it'll be up and running within an hour

    7100t for t-mobile. I'm so glad they upgraded to the ball in recent years I hated the side scroll considering I'm left handed.
