    Hey what's up crackberry? I'm pretty new to this site and I've only had a BB for about 8 months. There's so much you can do with them I find something new everyday. So what I would like to ask evryone is what's your favorite or coolest thing you can do with your BB? It can be a app or something you bookmark or anything.

    Its my personal GPS device, my shopping list, my alarm clock, my phone book and address book, my appointment scheduler, its my password keeper, its my ebook reader, my text messaging device, my emailing device, my twitter on the go, my facebook on the go, and... AND... AND!!! it can also make phone calls

    So ask not what the BlackBerry can do for you... And ask instead, what can you do for the BlackBerry?

    I love the custom contact alert/notification profile exception feature. With it, I can be sure my important contacts can reach me ... and no one else can bother me!

    (There are many, many other things, but that one comes to mind in the moment.)

    How about, I can hook it up to my [currently imaginary] PlayBook? But seriously, BBM. When i first got my berry I could not see the point at all, but the delivery and read receipts, and the groups so that I can create a family group so everyone with a berry can see the grocery list and calendar, as well as edit them. I could go on about why I love BBM for a few thousand more words, but I won't. Next up would have to be the integration. First part of that is that I see all of my facebook feeds, twitter feeds, and RSS feeds in social feeds, and all my emails from all my accounts and my facebook emails in my messages app, and finally in BBM I see BBM and select texting contacts. The second part of the integration is the app integration. I have an app that uses the volume up/down and mute button as convenience keys, and gives the option to add stuff to the menu (when you press the menu button no matter what application you're using), as well as another that provides a new lock screen. Third would be the LED, not as much for the quick glance to know if anything's new, but so that I'm notified instantly without the notification being pushy when I'm playing a game or watching a movie. Fourth would be the keyboards. On my Torch I have the nice physical keyboard as well as the SureType virtual keyboard, though I wish I could have a physical SureType as well, nothing's perfect... Anyway, I can type about twice as fast on either of these as i can on an iPhone 4, and nearly an infinite amount more than on a traditional phone. My final reason is lack of antennagate, or to be more specific, amazing communication skills. To me my phone should be a phone first, with games and such being add-ons, not the reason to buy the phone. If I want games I'll buy a gaming device, but for my phone I want a working phone, which seems to be too much to ask from Apple...

    The coolest thing I've ever done on my Berry is record my fave TV show, whilst out of the country on vacation.

    The Sky Mobile app is now available on Androids and iPhones, but at the time it was exclusive to BB.

    To sit by the pool, open the app, browse the TV guide, hit 'Record' and have it send instructions to my TV box 1000's of miles away was pretty cool at the time

    ...it certainly impressed my gf

    What I find really cool is being able to add a contact to BBM by just 'scanning' the barcode of the other person, after which we are added to each others BBM list.

    Update 5/31: After having used it for over 3 months now, I also like the fact that I can multitask with my BB. I know that might seem like a small thing to some people, but having come from a non-smart phone(which has very limited multitasking..example: opening up a memo while on the phone to take down a number) and a first generation iPod touch(which can't multitask), that is a big thing for me...
