InvertedHammer: Sorry for my ignorance...What is pinging? I keep hearing this term especially from people in Nigeria. I have never heard this term in US and I have lived in California
for the last years.
My dear when you send an sms from a phone number to another is called text message right? in Niger a message from a BBM contact to another is called pinging.

@OP Why did you buy it in the first place?


For all those hating on BB, why don't you just stick to what you prefer and what works for you and leave others to what they prefer.

Browsing (Nairaland, Google and some sites I need to check on motion or quickly)
Pinging, of course
Receiving and sending office and personal emails
Less often, internet banking


That's virtually all, but I used my damaged Torch 2 for other things like storage and transmission of files, but my current Bold 4 is not so convenient for that.

Wow! Blackberry Smartphone is one of the best TV to maximize internet connection. You can work outside office on your Blackberry device like you still in Office. Data management, applications runs on BIS not data.

Why Blackberry is a better Smartphone for businesses? In today’s tech world, finding
the right business Smartphone is not an easy
job. Every now and then, market is flooded with ads for the latest Smartphones and all
promising to revolutionize the way we use technology. The reality is that Smartphones
signifies a large financial investment for the consumer and most importantly, the productivity of your business depends on how well they function. All the entrepreneurs or businesspersons, before investing in a Smartphone, want an email application, productivity tools like Word, Excel and PDF viewer, competent mobile browser and reliable network. Blackberry provides you all
these features, plus many other solutions to enhance your business. Blackberry has always been manufacturing high-end business oriented Smartphones and has become
synonymous to high-tech business mobile phones. Today, they are applauded and appreciated worldwide due to their advanced technology, high-end functionalities and great
look. Some of the latest Blackberry phone models in the market are Blackberry Torch, Blackberry Curve, Blackberry Storm,
Blackberry Pearl and Blackberry Bold. All these models are power packed Smartphones loaded with fantastic applications, and are powerful enough to execute various
functions flawlessly and perfectly, including text messaging, sending emails, multimedia applications and mobile telephony.
However, the Apple’s iPhone has started to receive attention as a possible alternative and wants to gobble up a slice of Blackberry’s multibillion-dollar pie. It offers some more features than what Blackberry offers. They have recently offered the ability to remotely erase data from a lost or stolen phone. Nevertheless, Blackberry has an extremely far better email system than any other Smartphones. It has been the most popular Smartphone among businesspersons and most importantly, it has been standardized and businesses will not look for alternatives
for a very long time.

advanced IT control and functionality. The blackberry started out as a business device and will remain a business device.

Most of the bbm can't play a full HD videos, they can't even open ordinary PDF files. The phone is only selling in the Nigeria market. Pls try galaxy note and smash your bbm

walcolm: BB is a solid enterprise device. it was built originally for business uses and offered zero entertainment or fun factor

if you know what you are doing and you are business minded, with just a BB and absolutely no laptop or desktop around you, you can keep in touch with your business associates all over the world as if you are working from your office. no other smartphone gives you that level of dexterity, security and robustness when there's no PC around. you can churn out solid business proposals with text and graphics on the go. you can stay on top of all your emails no matter how many email addresses and which server is hosting those email addresses

most people started being able to use BB when the company started releasing general end-user friendly versions which was heralded by the release of the BBM that most people now talk about.

when the BB10 is released next year, the BB will be at par in terms of fun and entertainment as you currently get on androids and iphones

the iPhone does those better and does it the right way.
if you ever used an iPhone, you'll delete that rubbish you posted

Everything that can be done with a Blackberry Device can be done with a 15,000 Nokia phone. The only reason why I still carry one around is that its saves me the stress of checking how many GIG I have left for mobile browsing. Basically, it makes sure I am only worried about recharging my PC modem. Any day our service providers give us unlimited internet on other phones at 1,500 heck even 3k, that will be the end of my relationship with RIM.

I disagree with you 100%, galaxy anything can not receive mail faster than blackberry. Blackberry uses a compressed technology for data delivery which gives it upper hand in email delivery and it is more secured. Its integrations with cooperate infrastructure is also a big advantage. so there for a country like Nigeria with poor network service and data cost it means that with very low bandwidth blackberry compression makes it cheaper and and effective than other phones
