Default Blackberry users

Who's got them? What model do you have? How do you like it and what do you use it for? Apps? Bbm? Etc etc...

I've had blackberries for a few years now and use it for damn near everything. Currently I've got the BOLD. Yet it appears I've still got alot to learn.lol just looking for opinions and the like.


Discuss.

Ive got the Storm 2 and love it. You dont buy a blackberry for the app world cuz its not that great at all. I love that its a click touch screen and pretty much like a computer with the word documents to go software and all. Between email, bbm, worldwide service, wifi, powerpoint/ spreadsheet/ word programs, and how tough it it i love it. Some people dont like it because there are updates to patch things up but at least they do them.

I recommend the Storm 2 if you want the reputation of a blackberry's capabilities along with the advantages of a full touchscreen (perfect for movies!)

I have the Blackberry Storm. It sucks dick. Screen never works right if it's above 80* outside and it's constantly freezing. It's a great phone besides all its bugs though.

I now have the Blackberry Tour and its ok. Had to switch from my Curve today as the "r" button was messing up. I guess I'm not used to it yet, its a little different then my Curve. I'm going to switch the Curve 2 on my renewal in May.

The Storm 1 was horrible from what I heard. They fixed mostly everything for the Storm 2. Mine is great.

Started with the storm, sucked. Verizon gave me a storm 2, sucked less. Then they gave me a tour, awesome phone until it died for no reason. They gave me a free upgrade to a new bold a month ago and I love it.

The storm 2 was wayy better than the original, but like Tyler mentioned.. Above 80 degrees and with any humidity the screen was a bitch. I enjoy my real buttons now.

yea, I went through 3 of them before I said to hell with it. Mostly the issue was with the send button sticking.

I've had alot better luck with actually having real buttons.
