Posts Tagged ‘Blackberry’
I just got a Blackberry. I haven’t had one before as I am one of ‘those people’. Do I need to stay in constant contact with everyone who ever spammed me? I didn’t think so.
But then my phone contract came up. And since I had dunked my old phone in hot chocolate recently . . . (it was an accident, don’t ask.) Well, there was the new Blackberry Storm looking all shiny and new. The screen has similar touch capabilities to an iPhone, without being, well, an iPhone. I know, I’m a hater. Let’s just say I was smitten.
The kind lady at the store walked me through setting up my email accounts – yes, she patiently set me up for four email accounts on three different systems with four different passwords. Immediately my little green-cased phone began chiming at me pleasantly. I had email. In my hands!!!
The touch screen took a few days to learn how to navigate but very quickly I was able to keep it from attempting to spell correct my last name. (It initially suggests ‘Scum’ or ‘Scudding’ but about six letters in it just gives up.) I began sending messages tagged by ‘sent from my Verizon Blackberry’.
