I'm finally getting this phone this weekend. :D

My friend is getting the Captivate, and so, he said I can have his old phone. :D

Any recommended apps, or things? IDK where to start, lol.

Good luck with the apps. BB = no real good apps. Sorry to bust the bubble but BB is strictly a business phone, no joke.

There are some good fun apps. It's not all business.

Hardware wise it's an awesome phone. Too bad the software blows and the "app store" is anything but.

It does everything I want. Makes calls, and has a qwerty keyboard, that is fairly easy to type on.
The apps, I can have on my iPod, so it all works out.

Albo, nobody gets a cell phone to make calls with. You have a lot to learn about the American way...

Agreed, I basically talk on my cell phone for about 5 minutes each month. I text a **** load though.

See? You are becoming more American every day. Now go down to McDonalds and finish your training with an order of large fries and apple pie. Text me when you are finished.

Class dismissed!

Albo - Let us know what you think when you get it. I heard the 8900 is the best of the BBs. :)

Nooooo. I guess I failed. I rarely, if ever go to McD's
I usually go to Subway, if I get fast food.

You are not a real American unless you eat one of these...

Opps...Forgot about the OP. Blackberry is a great phone for email and texting...Fantastic actually. Web browsing, etc...Not as much. I'm sure it will do great for you since you are such a big time texter...

Seriously, don't just get a BB because you make phone calls and text. That's retarded. Get a phone that will do 1K times more stuff, don't limit yourself to a BB.

I'm getting it for free. My contract renews in march 2011. My current phone can literally do nothing. Absolutely nothing. This is going to be a huge step up for me. Don't get me wrong, I would love an android phone, but there is no way I can get one right now. Hopefully by march 2011, I will have a job and will be able to pay for it and the data plan.

Well if all you need is a job why didn't you say so?

I hate McD's too. :barf:
I'm also a Subway man...:thumbsup:

Good luck with your BB. I hated it when I was made to use one at my old job...

The BB needs a data plan. They are good phones for email, texting, sms and chat type stuff. They have good battery life and are reliable.

The 8900 is not the newest model, it's over a year and half old and doesn't have 3G. The Bold 9700 is the latest and there is a Tour 96xx that is similar.

The only thing is they are not that good for music, apps, video or anything like that. They can do it, but it's subpar.

I have a BB now and my next phone is going to be a iPhone 5 next year or Android.
