I can’t live without it! And since that happens all my birthday present for my family and closest friend have been a Blackberry! I really don’t care if they are expensive or if I find out that I am paying twice or whatever. But I think I am this loyal because I’m from Venezuela! I think we’re one of the principal consumer or something like that! But it’s unbelievable how Blackberry became one of our first necessity!

Got news for you tho it looks as if the iphone may actually come to big red in 2010 when they launch their 4g network. ive read rumors that both companys are working together to get this done.

I would rather have an average piece of hardware on a network that actually works, than a great piece of hardware on a network that drops calls in Chicago everytime you turn a corner!

RIM has a good product the Storm (needs some tweeking) I would be lost w/o my blackberry.

They failed to innovate and then they went bye-bye – they may be back but only if they release their SDK. Rim has failed to innovate. All it’s rather ugly phones look the same and perform the same and have done for years, it won’t take much to topple them, and then it’ll be bye-bye Rim.

Simply allow registered corporate cutomer employees a great discount to remain with the Blackberry of their choice..Any employee with children or teens can get a great pla and phone with their parents discount that way and RIM wins because they have a captive clientele that wants their product and services and no competition because/unless their competitors in the consume side discount greatly or pricematch they can’t be beat and do not need to compete in that arena. Are you reading this RIM?
