With BB one can download 1000GB of movies and still pay 3,000 for monthly subscription but other phones have download limits. That is the major advantage of BB over android and iphones here in Nigeria.

Lagusta: WHAT I DO WITH MY BLACKBERRY

Antimosquito: drives away mosquitoes within a one yard radius, useful when outside....

Mydoc2pdf converter: converts anything to pdf, I mean it, anything

Zipper: yeah, zip and unzip your files without using a PC, aint that wonderful??

OS7.1: that version can convert your blackberry into a hotspot, network dependent


Games: playtomo, combat ludo, pool, real football 2012.....


Who was that comparing a BB to a nokia E5, can an E5 act as a hotspot for free, can it convert docs to pdf, can it create word, ppt documents, is whatsapp encrypted

Please, gimme a blackberry and I show u a "small but mighty" phone....
well I can do all that on my android and more.. mutiple emailing, play hd games, able to install over 500apps(have about 60 now with 6.5gig to go) as for chatting I use whatapp, twitter for android 100 time better than twitter for blackberry and there are still about 10 other apps that are even better..etc android is the best. I use airtel 1.2gig for 1200 so it's more like bis.

Ignatio: The question is not yet answered. We haven't been told that special thing BB can do that other phones can't.

Some of you say it's made for business men but other smartphones serve better in that capacity. Even Nokia X2 competes with BB in that area.

The only thing about it is cheap data and pinging.

Bottomline BlackBerry is a subject of overestimation. Boring phone :@.

Blackberry is a phenomenon if u know what u can use it for.I can understand most nigerian use it for chats but as said its basically meant for business purposes. Emails, Chat, Apps, Fun, Business..BB just encompases everything in one phone. It s really hard to find a biz app thats not on BB. Forex to stocks and so much more. Only a fool will compare BB and Nokia E5 or whatever the model is.for kids..well they may not see the diffrence but for professionals its like heaven to earth.

Buying BB is a total waste of money. . Nokia, samsung & iphone are worth buying
Re: Apart From Pinging: What Else Do You Do With BlackBerry? by Nobody: 5:13pm On Sep 19, 2012
I have seen d e-war here between B.B & Nokia and its funny.
Personally, I use my BB 4 maximum downloads. Unlike Nokia, I go online any time wid the unlimited data and do whatever I want to do.
Working offline is done with my iphone. Ω̴̩̩̩̥♏ currently typing my seminar with my iphone.
My b.b gives me the ability to send voice notes free. Upload files to fileshare sites and I PING too, whatsapp, Touch, etc.

But looking at it critically, most pple Ŧђɑ̤̥̈̊Ŧ beef  aя̩̥̊ε suffering from one of the following:
1) They can't afford a BlackBerry + their HTC....
OR.
2) They wish they can keep up with the subscription....
OR.
3) They aя̩̥̊ε angry with themselves when they Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡.̮Ơ̴̴̴͡ their peeps put their big brain into a small black box called blackberry.
