Do you miss your bb......
You can't be serious! Not in the least!!!
I do. It sure made a great paper weight.
Honestly tho.....not even a little bit. I wish I would have jumped to android much sooner than I did. I was missing out terribly.
Oh......I also miss that painfully slow lil' blue bar in the bottom of the screen when you enter the browser.
I miss the BIS hotmail delivery. I hate deleting in 2 places. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix that?
No..not at all...since I'm back to using it (my X died 3 days after I received it - have to wait for the 29th [hopefully] for the new one).
Seriously though, the only thing I miss is the ability to customize the flashing LED for various notification types. I really did like that.
This is probably not a good time for me to answer this because I have just spent two hours trying to get some pictures and some music over on my X, and finally gave up. I think I've messed up my memory card, it's not recognized. I know just enough to screw things up. Now, to be fair, I never did try to put pictures and music on my BB.
But I do miss it a smidgen. I miss picking it up and seeing all my emails and texts all in an instant, ready for me to read and delete from phone or server or however I wanted to delete it from. On the X, I scroll through screens trying to remember where I put K-9, and then scroll through some more trying to remember where I put the text app.
I know I will get better at all this, and I love all it's possiblities, it's just right now it's winning in the battle of Droid X vs Me. But eventually, I will win.
The Storm was my first, and last BB. This is my first Android device, and it Rocks!!
The only thing I miss is Texas hold'em 2, those sorry excuses in the android marketplace aren't providing an adequate fix. Other then that, I don't miss a thing.
Not at all. I did have better battery life with the Storm but that isn't enough to keep me with blackberry. I'll just have a charger available
not at all
I've been using Blackberries since the b&w units years ago. Put my Storm out to pasture when I strolled into the local Verizon store on X launch day. Originally went in to possibly get a new Storm 2, but was talked into the X instead. Not sure I'm in love yet. I'd really like to synch up with Outlook on my laptop. Besides that, the X has lots of interesting bells and whistles.
BTW, all the hopeful revenue stream apps are tiresome to have on the phone without being able to dump them.
I miss the spell check....seriously...who designs a smart phone without that feature?? I also miss the LED message notification too.
For those missing LED notification, get handcent that should help a bit.
To answer the question, no not at all.
The only thing I miss is BerryBuzz and BBM. I've heard that MissedCall does the trick, but I've also heard that it's not updated and completely working for DX. I have GTalk, but a few of my friends on BBM have yet to make the switch. But otherwise, I'm happy I made the platform switch. I love customization.
I only miss My BBM......Android needs to come out with its own Exclusive messenger
Are you serious?
I don't miss BLACKBERRY. But I miss some things about it.
Special LED notifications.
Blackberry Messenger... (big one).
That's kind of really it.
i will miss bbm with my wife but that's it.
Not at all. Actually I broke my storm 1 in half the other day because the screen stopped responding. ill see if I can get some pics of it. Now I have to deal with this samsung POS flip phone till my X comes.
The ONLY things I miss are the AMAZING BB keyboard and BBM.
But I miss them a LOT. I actually bought a Curve 8330 to use off and on when I get sick of Android. Then I'll switch back whenever I want...
What's a blackberry?... *glances over at my Blackberry 8830 on my desk* Oh, that thing. It's on my "Things to list on craigslist" list now.
I miss BBM, and the freedom of the email service - I was also one the nuts that honestly enjoyed surepress, I hate physical keyboards & I'm new to full touchscreen. The X blows me away though, never thought I would ever have a phone like this, or phones would ever even get to this point but if there was a Storm 3, which surpassed the 2 by at least 3 times then I would still be fighting with RIM right about now.
But what sucks is the led ONLY flashes when screens off =-\
