    I have been using BlackBerries since the days of the 850/950's. They rock for wireless emailing. I now have a BlackBerry 7230, and love it. I just upgraded the OS to a recently released 4.0, which comes with a TCP/IP stack for those who don't have a BlackBerry Enterprise Server. It rocks - I can now IM, browse the network and use any app that requires TCP/IP. I'm going to install a terminal application - imagine SSHing into my Mac wirelessly. :)

    The only negative is the VERY Windows-centric attitude of RIM/BlackBerry. They're JUST starting to realize that there's a world outside of Windoze out there...

    Anyone else here use a BlackBerry?

    Duff-Man says...I don't myself (I don't like to be that easy to get a hold of - no cell phone, pager or Blackberry for me!) but I do have a few users I support at work that use them. They seem to love the concept but of course as they are managers they are technically challenged so it creates a bit of work for me.....oh yeah!

    I used to at the old job. Now I don't even have a cell phone. we used the nextel blackberry (cant remember the model.) All I can say is the service was horrid, and I had tons of battery issues. I like being phone free better.
