    Post My First Berry




    It was warmer than most February days, but I could still see my breath in the cool Minnesota air. My decision was made. I was ready for the next step in what would be the start of an incredibly passionate journey. I was getting ready to embark on a journey full of bumps and curves in the road. A journey that would bring others along for a ride to the future of mobile platforms. A journey that would inspire more then just myself. Haters will fight and clash simply because they can, but my driven passion would not stop me.

    It was all but a completed mission, a milestone in my short thus-far completed life. I, of course, remember the day so well. It was as if it just happened. I can't explain exactly why I decided to choose this phone. I can tell you I've wanted one for as long as I can remember. I never really needed one, my social life consisted of a few local friends and some ICQ friends. My email needs that were once a huge priority, were now no longer an important requirement but I desired this phone, and I got one.

    It was the beginning of the 2008 tax refund season and I had received my refund a few weeks ago. I was looking to get a new phone to replace my old Nokia. I had been sharing a line on my parents plan which made my bill a lot cheaper than today's monthly fee, but that was a much simpler time.

    As we walked into the mobile store, which at the time was called Alltel, I glanced over some very basic phones. I was simply excited to get something new. When over to the right I spotted my future. It seemed as if it was glowing, it attracted my eyes. The BlackBerry Curve was meant to be in my hands. For the first time in my life, I held and navigated through the BlackBerry I was excited for in each and every step I made. My decision was made within minutes.

    I made my way to the counter to get an associate to help me out, and a few minutes later I was on my own plan with my very first BlackBerry phone. It took me the first few days to simply get used to the interface and surfing the web. It wasn't until a few months later that I needed the BlackBerry to be with me all times, constantly attached to my hip.

    My life started to circle around my BlackBerry. My first task was managing my work schedule. Following that, I started using the email feature and then moved onto additional features. As time went on I continued to fall in love with the BlackBerry keyboard and track pad. I never left home without it, and reduced my PC usage because of it.

    My first BlackBerry will always remain an important part in my life and will always be the reason why I continue to be a BlackBerry fan. What was your first BlackBerry experience like? How many Berrys have you had since then?

    My name is James and I am a BlackBerryaholic.

    I was just released from prison in '08 when I got my new little Nokia flip phone. It felt really good to have a cell phone and I wore it on my hip with pride. I really loved that phone until I visited my brother in Hawaii.....and he showed off his iPhone. From that moment I vowed to step up into the world of smart phones. When I got back to my Florida home, I drove straight down to Sprint. The choices were unbelievable. I walked back and forth around the shop until a familiar name presented itself: BlackBerry. The name itself was like a powerful elixir and from the moment I saw that BB 8330, I knew it was the phone for me and my heart started beating wildly. That day started a love affair that continues today. That day was the beginning of the end for my relationship with my girlfriend at the time. Simply put, my new BB was way more entertaining and fun than she was. As I would lay in bed staring at my little black friend and exploring its wonders, Jamie would scowl and squirm. I didn't care....I had found another and I have never looked back. A month later I said the fatal words: "I think we need a break". Even now as I write this on my bridged Playbook with my lovely Bold 9930 sitting close (With a brand new Decal Girl skin outfit), I cannot imagine another. The functionality, the design and my unwavering loyalty for my chosen brand (or did it choose me?) makes me feel complete and in control of the many aspects of my life. From work to my family to my entertainment, my Bold never let's me down. It never talks back. It never gives me grief and never fails me. So, until BlackBerry and father RIM give up the ghost, I will be here. I will remain loyal. I will always be a BlackBerryaholic.

    *In June of 2011 I married an amazing woman. We met at Church and the first time she pulled out her BlackBerry Storm, I gasped and knew she was the one for me.

    Awesome story man. I get so excited when I can get others excited about a BlackBerry product. I've been able to get 8 others locally to get a BlackBerry PlayBook in the past year and it really makes me feel good when they are enjoying it every day. But I get even more excited when I find out someone wants to replace a phone they have now for a BlackBerry. Can't wait for BB10 to prove to the world.
