I find that very misleading......what in the hell are you downloading from the market?? undecided undecided......almost all apps in the market average 6MB in size with the exception of games and HTC cha cha is not even a (average) gaming fone.

If you are corporate and you need to get ur mails pushed to your phone, you need to stay reachable, then you will appreciate blackberry the more. Pinging is just a past time. To me its like playing games on your phone. I hardly ping unless its informative and work oriented...

You people talked about push mails as if it is a new invention brought by BB, we have been having it since last decade nokia fones . Some peeps were not that technologically sound to set up their fones and always-on internet was still on high side.
Now it not that expensive , with even 10mb , u can have ur mailboxes sync for a month ie without large documents download

BB no get offline radio... I'll rather go for other Android phones, even E5 is preferrable
Re: Apart From Pinging: What Else Do You Do With BlackBerry? by Hackomania(m): 7:40am On Sep 20, 2012
I think the best way to answer this questions would be for each person to say what he/she does with his/her Blackberry.

And yes Blackberry has skype

And why do people still compare the E5 to the BB? I wonder.
Push email, BB wins
Social networking on the go, BB wins
I even blog on my BB, thanks to WP4BB
Or is it presentations (for training facilitators), BB wins
The list goes on...
Re: Apart From Pinging: What Else Do You Do With BlackBerry? by Aringon(m): 7:51am On Sep 20, 2012
Most people do not need a blackberry, blackberry was meant for business minded individuals, you can use your bb as ur laptop for your business. it wasnt meant to play games on it. For example, if you love more milk in your tea u will always go for a Milo but if u love more chocolate, then Bournvita is okay for u and same goes with the fones. Dont allow people with their reasons to confused and convinced u to buy a fone that will be useless to u.
If you love games and other applications then go for nokia,samsung,sonu ericcson and HTC but if you really love to receive ur email on time and other business stuffs on ur fone on the go, do not waste time on other fones, go for BB. Its a business fone and so it is

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.

WHO TOLD YOU THAT YOU CANT CHAT WITH UR FRIENDS ON FACEBOOK USING A BB,THERE IS A FREE APPLICATION U DOWNLOAD AND U CLICK GO ONLINE AND THAT IS IT N PLS DONT CONFUSE PEOPLE HERE grin

timbros:

Because it a "gen repairer" it has become a bad thing for him to chat wit u. If it was a girl now, no matter how she is, u wont complain cuz its a girl. #smh
And who says ur gen repairer cant buy a BB to ping with?

#SorryForYourMentality

u miss d point my dear. we hv had no real basis for gist. he repairs my gen whn my main repairer is away. ders a rapport with the main repairer.besides, hes jst a guy tht jst left high school and hes trying to form whiz kid for me.

i dont look down on pple as u r trying to portray, Mr Defender. so if he likes let him buy BB, iPhone, iPad, Galaxy, Tecno...

my point is that whaasup doesnt give u d choice of choosing ur contacts. kabish!!!!!!

ndiseme!!!

After an argument, silence may mean acceptance or the continuation of resistance by other means. Blackberry is data friendly phone, I POSSESS android phone my experience when am browsing with it make me set it aside. I am of the opinion that Nokia happen to be the best phone money can buy in term of battery life and durability its also data friendly if we are talking about small nokia phone, if you had the opportunity to make use of nokia n 97 and other higher nokia you will hate them in term of data consumption speak from wisdom, I can refer to BB as mini laptop in term of battey life I love my BB because it allow me to economise my data plan I am heavy data user
Re: Apart From Pinging: What Else Do You Do With BlackBerry? by kinsab(f): 9:49am On Sep 20, 2012
The issue is this if you don't know what to do with your bb sale it to people like me thanks bb is on top of all mobile phone when you talk of games on nokia me i never play phone games this days when i have pes3n on my system here even any adventure game
Re: Apart From Pinging: What Else Do You Do With BlackBerry? by slimojas89(m): 9:50am On Sep 20, 2012
The difference bw bbm and other instant messaging services is show-off. Young girls snap in expensive hotels their friends take dem to and put it on their dp's with tags like "livin la vida loca". Complete Waste of time. bb is good but many young pple will only find out later how much of their lives that had wasted away cos most of dem sleep on bbm checking pple's dp to know what's happening with dem and chatting. All this argument about which fone Is better is useless, know what a phone can give u and choose which to use and use wisely.

the push email on BB is different from push email on any other phone?

really? other phones don't social network? or they dont do it "on the go" what ever that means

Hackomania:

Or is it presentations (for training facilitators), BB wins

wow, blogging.... really exotic and mindblowing? which blog is that abeg?

is it that its not possible to blog or do presentations on other phones?

[/quote]

and finally the most IMPORTANT QUESTION. HAVE YOU EVER USED ANOTHER PLATFORM PHONE, E.G SYMBIAN BELLE PHONES, ANDROID PHONES, IOS PHONES?

u seem to have decidedly strong convictions on how crappy those other platforms are compared to a Blackberry. i guess you should have used em before to know?

Another thing is all this talk of "downloading gigabytes"


are your blackberries desktop phones? cos i sure as hell know that there is no blackberry in existence on this planet that can download gigabytes of data at one go on its battery, matter of fact merely pinging on a BB with 3G data on will net you a around of 5 hrs use much less downloading on nigeria's crappy networks.

do you tether your bb to a power socket or you carry i beta pass my neighbor gen dey waka ni?

secondly, before you lie, there are no download managers for blackberry, so download resume is not going to happen.

matter of fact the only way you get to download files above 5MB is using UCBrowser, and its download manager is pretty hit and miss. it also does not support java script properly



so are you saying that your Blackberries are practically desktop phones permanently tethered to the socket to download gigabytes?


were it not for operamini, would you even be able to browse with blackberry with that evil useless, rubbish crappy browser?


BTW, all the talk of unlimited download is off the mark, YOU ARE USING TRICKS TO SPOOF THE NETWORKS TO GET YOUR SO_CALLED UNLIMITED DOWNLOADS, RIM has a data transfer cap of 5MB at a go, 5. RIM or your provider NEVER intended for you to have "unlimited" downloads

smh

who told you, or did u hear it from somebody, on zain network, without trick 1Gig is allocated to blackberry subscription. so u need to clarify your statement. my bold torch browser works fine , even there are some sites that can be opened by opera which can be accessed fine usin inbuilt browser, i can download without problem. my bb torch does better compare to scrap e5, i browse, stream videos using edge on my phone . i couldnt do this usin my e5 even to browse , i could only use opera on e5 cos the inbuilt sucks, i subscribed wit 1300 to get 250mb on e5. it is now i realise that i can use 1200 to subscribe for 1gig on bb, see flexing.. i love my blackberry . that is y everybody is goin for bb bundle to be used on wether iphone or android.
