Re: no more bb

It's too bad you base your entire BB experience on an 8520. The 8520 was one of the cheapest BB devices built. I have one in my closet that is brand new, never used, because nobody in my family or at work wanted it. They love their Torches and Bolds, and now the Z10's, though.

Re: no more bb

And just ot prove there are many opinions, I only changed away from my trusty 8520 when we changed carriers and I had to get a new phone.  Never broken the trackpad, never updated the software, and it is still working fine as a test device.  Yes the browser was not as good as the OS 6 devices and the network was slower by design (price), but it never failed me, I could always reply to emails and BBMs when I needed to!  Keyboard worked well and battery lasted forever.
