    Why is Blackberry more expensive than the HTC? You don't get a free "crackHTC" forum of the same caliber as CB do you?

    Blackberry is always more expensive than cellphones with similar or better specs. I could easily get an HTC with better specs, faster browser and far more apps available at a lower price then let's say a 9700.

    I just don't get why they are sold at a premium compared to other brands.
    Because Blackberries are made with love, hugs, and electronic stuff bro!

    Yes, because only countries with lot's of manufacturing jobs are 1st world like China, Vietnam and India.

    And countries with no manufacturing like Switzerland are less than 3rd world, right?

    RIGHT?!
    Hey Norli, I'm from India, and we have respect on a world stage. China can kick Norway's a$$ ten times to ****.
    And what do we know about Norway, hmmm let's see what does Norway offer the world........NOTHING...
    The world won't even miss Norway if it was drowned. I guess we won't even miss it for a week...
    Get real before you go on about "Third" world countries like China and India....we don't live on borrowed money like Europe.

    You also pay more for that blackberry badge, let's be honest. Same as Apple and their iphones.
    HTC...... Not so much.
    Sure a Hyunday is a good car but it's no Honda.

    Here's the thing, how many of the earlyer Androids do you still see in use? G1, Hero etc
    I see plenty 8300s bolds 9000, even see 88004 and 8700s and this means they are well built. A new HTC might look shiny but how does it look after 3 years?
    Where are all the iphone edge?

    I gotta chime in and say go out and look at all these other phone be it Android or IOS and you find any BB as competive priced if not lower depending on carrier as others have mentioned.

    I think in 2011 even with new ones coming out they will be priced right.

    Good Point.
    Still see a lot of 8800's and 8700's. Goes to prove that all that glitters is not gold.
    And the thing everyone misses out on is that the 8800 is just as functional as any latest model. Only addition would be a webkit browser, better multimedia. But it still delivers where it matters

    Also the other thread you started you are complaining about is now locked... for good reason. What do you own? Maybe you should try another platform since BB does not agree with you. Just a thought is all.

    listen bro: there's a reason why you don't see 3 year old androids, becaue technology is changing fast, and people who love Android phones love hi-tech. Same with Apple-nerds.

    Blackberry users are mostly old farts or people like me who have a lot of friends and need a convenient text messaging device. I don't care aboute technology. As long as I can watch porn on my phone and send messages I am happy.

    I bought both of my current Blackberries used on Ebay. I could never afford a new item that is as horribly overpriced as the Blackberry

    EVERYONE, I deleted 16 posts, cut it out with the racist C R A P! (yea I said it!!!!), and the attacks. You can disagree WITHOUT attacking each other! Please remember from our Posting Rules & Guidelines.....

    Post in the Right Forum
    We’ve done our best to layout the forum categories so they are logical and make sense. When you are creating a new thread, do your best to get it in the right category. We want these forums to be value added and educational. The General CrackBerry Discussion and General RIM/BlackBerry Discussion are good places to post if you have a serious question but are not quite sure where to put it. These forums are less stringently moderated, while specific forums (BlackBerry 8700 Series for example) are more strictly moderated to maintain their quality and usefulness.

    And of course, we also have the Off-Topic Discussion forum. This is the place on the site to have fun and talk about whatever. From sports to the weather to what to buy your girlfriend for her birthday (buying her a new blackberry is always a good thing), anything goes in here. Just remember to keep it clean, keep it productive and keep it legal!


    Make Meaningful Posts
    While CrackBerry.com is geared as much towards entertaining and connecting the Crackberry community as it is to helping solve problems and staying on top of news and rumors, all posts made within the site should be value added and on topic to the thread (even in the free for all). Hijacking a thread off-topic is a big No-No, and posts made for no reason other than to increase post count will be wiped from the site.

    What it comes down to is what you want. If you want an android then buy that. If you want an iphone then buy that. If you want a blackberry then by that. And from what you have said it sounds like you just want to **** and moan and then stay on blackberry.

    My Thunderbolt was $250. That's including a 32GB memory card, but still. Pretty expensive.

    Wait, were talking non contract pricing....and oddly enough Thunderbolt was still more than the Blackberry.

    But the browser is too slow, and they're overpriced?

    I would expect the Tbolt to bemore expensive. It is newer and has more features.

    Off contract prices of all phones seem ridiculously high to me.

    This thread is dumb.

    The OP is just saying what has been said on here soooooooooooooooooooo many times.

    The bb should be cheaper because it's specs (not what it can do) don't come close to other phones specs for the same price and I hate to say it but do agree.

    I'm sure most of you know that.
