I Hate My BlackBerry

I have had my BlackBerry for a bit over a year. I used to love it. Well, I liked it a lot anyway. I LOVE my iPad - I love my iPad more than I EVER loved my BB.  What was my point?

Oh, right. I hate my BlackBerry. It is currently not working. I believe I can send and receive texts and calls. That is it. I cannot get into options to remove what I believe it causing the problem - their own friggin' bb messenger software - I cannot receive mail - I cannot look at Facebook - and I certainly cannot download the one simple ringtone I wanted, which caused all this mess in the first place.

This problem happened about a month back, too. Girlfriend was around and able to fix it - over the course of an hour or two.  She is out of town now....for another week.  Sprint basically will wipe my system, take at least three hours to do so, and probably charge me a lot for it.

As long as it still functions as a phone, I guess I can wait until Vicki returns to see if she can resolve the problem.  I have been told by a friend that my solution, which is throwing it out the window, is not a good one. Fine.

I hate mine too. At a year and a bit my BB started freezing and acting wonky. I can't stand it. I have an iPod which I love and so I think I'd like the iPhone a lot more.

I think BB is falling behind on some technology, judging from the complaints/issues I hear from people who have them.

I've had my HTC Droid for just a few months, and I may say otherwise later down the road, but for ow I'm very happy. I'm also not fond of Sprint, like Verizon very well.

I think throwing it out a window is a very valid option - I just think you might want to make sure it's not a tempered window that could result in additional frustration rather than the satisfying scrunching of the BB that you would like to experience! :-)
