The bad thing about Nigerians is that we are only consumers of gadgets but ignoramuses when it comes to its know how.
Its not a good thing to compare BlackBerry with any Nokia or Java phone.
Blackberries save u a lot of cash for data subscription.
You can use a BlackBerry to check a woman's pregnancy status
You can use your BlackBerry GPS to locate anywhere
Have you used the BlackBerry password keeper?
The sound record portion of the BlackBerry was made for journalists and musicians, even if u whisper,it picks it loud and clear.
There are more other useful and dangerous things you could do with the BB that other phones cannot do but won't be revealed to you for some reasons. You have to research and not just talk the BB down.
Its a tool and not just a phone

I use my BB for a whole lot of things. Like from facebook on my BB, I enter vanguard news, the nation news paper, naija gossip, naija comedy club,and naira land to know what is going on around me. U see BB is no only for pinging. There are alots of things u can do with ur BB.

Av tried k9 mail(with the dog head logo) and so many others....even "system 7" but they r not reliable,I was using htc desire hd and I thought galaxy note would improve in the email aspect and bought it but when I discovered it was lagging in that area,I hurriedly went to get a bold 5...bro,blackberry is simply the best when it comes to email!!!!!.....E0D

BB with blackberry enterprise server, the world is your oyster. It goes beyond a phone to play games, it's a business tool coupled with unhackable end-to-end connection.
Re: Apart From Pinging: What Else Do You Do With BlackBerry? by ayando(m): 8:33pm On Sep 19, 2012

7 Reasons Why Blackberry
Sucks and You Shouldn’t Buy
One


1. Justin Trudeau, a Top Canadian Politician,
Confirms BB Sucks RIM (Reasearch in Motion) is the Canadian
company that manufactures Blackberry (in
case you didn’t know) but lately, they’ve had
lots to deal with including this tweet from a
top Canadian politician: Ok, now I officially hate this
Blackberry. Stupid
ineffective touch screen
mislaunching tweets. Plus I
can’t multitask, apparently. That’s a confirmation on how ineffective
Blackberry is at being a good Smartphone. He
said his BB couldn’t multitask but I assume
that’s a personal experience. BB can do
multitasking but whatever got the man tweet
that got to be pretty annoying.


2. Limited Applications and Games If you’re the type that love messing around
with all sort of applications, you’ll regret
buying a Blackberry device. It’s obvious app
developers are not interested in developing
for Blackberry OS. Their app world sucks big
time. I run Adobe Photoshop Express on my iPhone and there are tons of applications on
iTunes store, Google Play and Ovi that you’ll
never find on Blackberry, not in the next 50
years. Wait, does blackberry support HD games? I
run Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 on my iPhone
with full commentary and stunning graphics.


3. You can’t even Customize the Stupid Thing Well, I’m a geek and I love doing whatever I
like with my device. I use a Symbian phone and
iPhone, both hacked and jailbroken
respectively. I can customize my device, do
whatever I like with the OS but with a
Blackberry phone, this is impossible.


4. The User Interface is Ugly You user interface isn’t modern to me but
Blackberry users believe “it’s Blackberry” so it has to be that way. I think you need to wake
up!



5. Blackberry Messenger? Facebook Chat has
More Users! The only thing Blackberry has that you can’t
find on other phones is their Blackberry
messenger. But wait, those using Blackberry
messenger don’t use Facebook chat? BBM is
not enough reason to but a Blackberry phone,
I can still contact my friends on Facebook chat that’s even more widely used, with or
without my mobile phone around. Think about it, only a fraction of your friends
are on Blackberry messenger, almost
everyone of them use Facebook chat.



6. The Web Browser is so Ineffective With the Safari browser on my iPhone, I can
open every single web page on the internet
without any problem, displaying the page
exactly as it would look like on my notebook.
The other day I was using a friend’s
Blackberry, it sucked even more than I imagined! Last time I checked, Symbian Anna
and Android supports flash!



7. The Design Sucks Big Time You can’t compare my sleek, elegant iPhone
with any Blackberry device in market.
Blackberry isn’t attractive one bit and there
are better looking touch based devices
running Android OS and Symbian. The qwerty
keypad is rather too small for me (hey, I’ve got big fingers lol ), the virtual keyboard on iOS is a lot better if you ask me. The future belongs to touch based devices and
it seems RIM is trying to catch up on that,
copying Apple, Samsung and other smartphone
manufacturers. They failed at that! The touchscreen doesn’t
work right. I have to
constantly turn off my
phone, take the battery
out, wait a minute, put the
battery back in, and restart my phone just to
get it to half way work!!!
Even after I do that it still
doesn’t work right!!!! That’s a Blackberry user lamenting at it’s
effectiveness. You shouldn’t buy a blackberry
phone if you need a real smartphone.
Blackberry is nothing but a toy to me and the
operating system is nothing to write home
about. You can scream all you want, I’m just saying my mind here and if you feel the way I
do, please share this blog post on Facebook
and hit the +1 button! Tell your friend
Blackberry sucks!

Wrong , with my Joiku in E5, I provide internet at 4g to every wifi device around me with airtel 1gig
And I can never be lost in any city with my nokia map - online and offline , as long as u can see the heavens.
Can BB give u that?

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
Sorry i don't agree with u. BB is rubbish compared 2 some other devices. I used a BB b4 was forced to upgrade 2 an android. I now use Samsung S2 to keep in touch with my stuff. If u've used a wide range of fones u'd know what am talking of.

BB design is primarily for Business minded people. With it you are as good being in your office 24/7. Also there is no Smart that is data/Money saver like Blackberry, with 1500 I download as much as many gigabyte data as I want, you don't get that anywhere

I agree wit u to an extend but u r not on d point. All these thing BB can do android does it better. When u compared d apps on BB d& androids, u'd see android apps r better, more cost effective & cheaper. Like i said, i used d two. I used to have 2 buy my BB apps but since i upgraded 2 android I've not bought and app yet cos almost all sold app on android have free versions. Checking a woman's pregnancy u mentioned in BB, I know d app and used it too. Its finer on android, oh and also faster. Look just go for android and u won't regret it.

Aringon: There r so many people here who hate blackberry becos of the way LADIES behave with it. To me, there are 2 kind of fones and that is Blackberry and the rest( dont kill me yet) The email server of blackberry is the fastest in the whole wide world and if you know that you are a business person who is always on the go, Blackberry is it. Blackberry is not all about pinging(though this is important for business people too). The other day instead of making a conference call, we did a multiperson chat,linking up with my business in Turkey and we got talking to resolve the issue.(Some people will shout hey HTC, iphone can do that) relax my friend, they cant do it perfectly well
says who?
