Berry-Fi!

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Which model do you have? OS? What type of Berry-user are you? Accessories? PIN (for privacy reasons, please use PM)? Modifications?

Join the 'Berry group!

I have the 8900 Javelin, a.k.a. the Curve running v4.6.1.231 (platform 4.6.1.108) with BBM 5.0 OTA; paired with a (Plantronics Discovery) BlackBerry H655+ bluetooth headset. I switched my silly looking plastic chrome bezel to an all-black bezel, protected by a cheap, black aftermarket, $8 hardcase. The phone instantaneously look much stealthier, slick and BADASS! The mod took about 10 minutes, and $50 worth of housing (backplate, bezel, top cover and keyboard).





By the way, I still love my iPhone..

I was hoping this would be a thread discussing the picking of wild wineberries and the like


I was planning on buying a blackberry though, as my contract has just renewed. Any advice on which current model to get?

I have a Blackberry Storm by Verizon. It's alright. Battery is not that great. Have anyone use the new Blackberry Tour? I saw it the other day, the screen is bright, sharp and amazing.

I also have the 8900. I waited in line to get it on release date in the rain..

I want to black mine out too, but since upgrade time is only a few months away I might not do that, so I can sell my old 8900 as "like new". Plus I'm not really into voiding my warranty. It's been so long since I've updated the firmware.. I think I'm running the latest official TMO release 4.6.1.231? I'm using a BlueAnt Z9i since my trusty old Jabra JX10 disappeared several months back.

I love the phone. Best phone I've ever had by far. The only thing I don't like about it is that my girlfriend is constantly asking me to look up things on it (directions, reviews, etc.) while we are out. I can't wait until her company upgrades her from her crappy BlackJack 2 so she can use a real smartphone and quit bothering me!

I used to be on Crackberry.com a lot but those forums got old quick. Too many people posting the same things and not searching. Kind of why I stick to the Member's Lounge and Gear-Fi boards here now!

I recently got a Blackberry 8800 from a friend. It needed work and I fixed it up nice. 4.5.0.161 OS.

Storm with 4.7.0.148. Too lazy to downgrade to a properly working OS. As it stands the camera doesn't work with the OS and the battery drains in a little over a day.

I expected this kind of Berry-Fi!

I have an 8900, with 4.6 on it (I think). It's awesome, was going to get an iPhone but when it comes to email, the blackberry owns.

Plus I have to represent Waterloo, University of Waterloo '08 grad here!

I'm looking to get an 8900, or the replacement, but with no data plan because most everywhere I go there is wireless. I also have a home wireless plan, but the transmitter/receiver is a USB device, so I'd have to cable it to connect it to the BB.

How well does the wifi work?

WiFi works very well on the phone, but without a data plan, I highly doubt you can access BlackBerry Internet Service..

The internet service allows you to PIN, or BBM.

Wifi on the 8900 works really well. I love the unlimited wifi (UMA) calling you can add to your plan with Tmobile. Anywhere you have wifi you can make free voice calls, even if you have zero carrier reception!

By the way, you really should get a data plan if you go with a BlackBerry. Although you're connected to wifi, many applications will not work. No email, messenger, etc.. If you're just going to use the phone to make calls then you don't need a data plan, but then why do you need a BlackBerry?
