GOOD LUCK BLACKBERRY !!!
I love my BB.
It's a shame because it really is the best on the market to simply type and if you are not into all the other stuff, then there really isn't another product that can top it for ease of texting and email. I wish the other caught onto the fact some of us just enjoy typing on a bit of a regular looking keyboard without having to slide the phone, etc.
BlackBerries are junk. Both my wife and daughters have had BlackBerries in the last 8 years, and have had nothing but trouble. They get hot to the touch. They lose memory with no notice. The screen falls out. I have a flip phone and have no problems to date. But, it's a Samsung, not a RIM product. We've had Samsung, LG, HTC, and Motorola products. So, maybe it's RIM that's junk.
I think it makes a difference if its a refurb. Maybe I'll pay full price for my next one and it won't take 5 minutes to cold boot.
The writing was on the wall when Blackberry released it's tablet to such a cold reception. No software/aps for hey felt great because teen were using BBM, but guess what, teens do make money to spend on things. WHen they stayed in their corporate nitch, they were great, but for the mainstream, you need more than BBM, and email to make it. Yeah, some people are sticking with it just for BBM, but other than that, RIM offers NOTHING that other devices do, and other devices do it BETTER. RIM had better open up BBM for IPhone and Android before they miss the boat, and get "down-sized".
I am wishing that I had sold my shares of RIMM when it was up about 80.00! That's what I get for being greedy!
I do not see the situation improving unless they choose to work a major company at this point.
Why does Huff post stories with font sizes that do not work? Makes it hard for older people and others to read stories.
I just checked the font size. The font is size 12 which is the standard font size. This is the font size used by most websites for the text body. If you have trouble reading, you can zoom in by holding the CTRL key and scroll your mouse at the same time to zoom in or out. Alternatively, you can hold the CTRL key and click the plus sign (+) key to zoom in or (-) key to zoom out.
