    Blackberrys

    Need a little insight to the blackberry world. Currently I have a Motorola Q on the Verizon network. My two year contract is up and I am debating between the LG Dare and the new Blackberry Storm. Since no one has played around with the storm I am looking for some general info on the blackberry brand.

    What I use my phone for mostly
    1. Internet - Facebook, cyclone fanatic, fantasy sports, espn, personel e-mail while at work.
    2. Phone calls - How is the quality of the phone, coverage, etc.
    3. Texting/Picture messaging
    4. Does it have bubble breaker? This is a deal breaker, has to have it.
    5. Pictures, how does the camera work?


    Thanks in advance.

    Has all of that stuff. Bubble breaker no, Brick Breaker yes.

    The Curve is an amazing device, so Im sure the Storm will be too. All sorts of great apps, free and otherwise available.

    Get the VX6900. Very good deal on it right now, you might even get it free. You can then easily upgrade it to have true GPS. It does all the things you want, plus more. PM me if you want more info.

    You can get Circle Popper for free from the Blackberry homepage under free games. It has to be similar to Bubble Breaker. Colored balls in groups of 3 or more all pop? You shoot the next ball from an area at the bottom of the screen?

    Enter your location

    xv6900

    after you upgrade it to windows 6.1, it is easily the best device verizon has.

    I tested a HTC Touch, which is what the XV6900 is, from USCellular this weekend. If USC had better technology it would've been a cool phone, but that damn touch screen keyboard is annoying, even after I downloaded a better one it still sucked. The new HTC Touch Pro is coming soon, don't know which carriers, and it has a slide out keyboard, that'd be the perfect phone IMO.

    Re: Blackberrys

    I have a quick question. Just bought a Blackberry Curve, and I'm looking to add a micro SD card for extra storage. What is the max size I can go up to, and is there a specific type of card I need to buy. I've been researching it a liittle and there seems to be differing opinions. Do I need a Micro SD HC card? Does the brand matter? Just curious.

    Re: Blackberrys

    8 GB is all the curve can handle right now and yes you need a Micro SD, shouldn't matter the brand.

    It's funny saying all it can handle but there are people out there complaining that it cannot use the 16GB cards yet.
