BB, I miss you!

As you all know we are moving down south shortly. Very shortly, right, Uncle Sam? Anyway, in preparation for the move, I wanted to get a US Cell phone. It actually is cheaper to have a US phone, add a data plan for Canada etc, than to pay for the plan I already have.

But I had a contract with Ma Bell that they told me to get out of would cost me mucho moola. So I Craigslisted my BlackBerry Curve and hunkered down to wait for someone to take it off my hands.

Last night a very nice young student did just that. We called Ma Bell, dealt with the red tape which was surprisingly easy, and Bob was my uncle.

I wiped the BlackBerry of all my personal data – a must if you are selling / passing on a phone. I am bereft. I have to actually check my email on the computer. I cannot PIN nor BB Msgr my KoD until I have replaced the phone when I am next back in the States. I am unreachable unless I am home. Weird.

Remember a year ago when I got it? I did not realize then that I would fall in love with this hand held piece of technology. And what do I do to my love? I trade it in for a newer model which I have not met yet. How shallow can I be? Oh PoisonBerry I miss you!!

So the discussion now is which model to get. I really wanted a Curve because that’s what I am used to AND it comes in pink. But KoD says that the Blackberry Tour is so much better and has much better features. I will have to go to the Verizon store to check them out, but I liked the size of the Curve. It is thin and streamlined. The Tour seems to be thicker and more masculine and comes in Henry Ford’s colours “You can have any colour so long as it’s black”.

My twitter buddy, @hilzfuld, who is a techie kind of guy, recommends the Bold 9000 because of the Wifi and 3G capabilities, best screen and best keyboard. Of course I had to ask him what the heck all of that stuff means – can it get phone calls, email, text messages and does BB Msgr work on it? What the heck else do I need, do I want bells and whistles?

So Blackberry people – hit me with your recommendations. And if you are lucky enough to have had my cellphone number and PIN – delete delete delete. I will get back to you with the new ones soon enough.

  1. Isn’t the Bold a new version of the Curve??? And send me your new PIN and I’ll send you mine 🙂 Pink, btw, is the shizz but you could get a silicone cover 🙂

  2. I am a big Curve fan. the size is perfect and it does e/t I need. Are you going to need wifi? you already have internet on the BB and an unlimited data plan. How often are you in a place where you need the extra burst of speed Wifi provides over 3G and youre not near a computer?

  3. i don’t think i need extra wifi, no clue what 3G is…I just need a working phone with data plan for my emails and texts…nothing fancy…

  4. At this time, Verizon doesn’t offer a WiFi Blackberry anyway. And I agree with Tzvi that it’s not necessary.

  5. Honey, why would anyone need extra WiFi? what would it do for me anyway?

  6. QoH: When you said “Honey” were you referrring to Tzvi or me? 🙂

  7. har har har. to you, mr KoD, you ninny. Tzvi has someone else to call him honey, he doesn’t need me to do it, do you Rabbi H?

  8. Neither will give you any reception in the Adirondaks.

  9. I most definitely do. 🙂

  10. Get the blackberry tour!!!! I have the blackberry storm and am waiting until I can beg McDreamy for the tour (maybe for my bday!!!)…I *love* my bberry (crackberry) and can not function without it….i love the storm bc it takes great pictures and has a big screen but it’s hard to type on….my typing is much slower than when I had an actual keyboard…The Tour has gotten amazing reviews….you won’t be disappointed!

  11. i did, i got the tour!! having fun with it!
