    I use a blackberry curve; still. It has a pull-start and a two cycle engine. I have four plug in chargers in different bags and was not willing to get a new phone and have to buy all new chargers; at 35 bucks a pop. It sucks. The camera sucks, the phone sucks. It keeps saying to me "say a command" cuz the design sucks so bad when you pick it up you push something that prompts you...fk the piece of shit. And, the battery last about two seconds. If I want to use the internet it takes ten minutes for it to come up. Then I can't see it on the screen cuz you need, like a freaking electron microscope to read the point .0000001 font. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a device to toss in a nearby pond. Well, pool, pond...

    Not sure how serious you are about this...Some phones actually make you use their charger even if they have the right connector but for some you just need an adapter.

    Blackberrys are outdated. The new ones will be no different. They are good for email and nothing more.

    Their ship has sailed. Nobody will go back to a blackberry that has already switched to an android, iPhone, or a windows device. They tried the tablet market and failed. If this line doesn't work they'll be out of business which will suck because I have always enjoyed the RIM conventions.

    agigator: Thanks for the link, by the way. The trick is finding an adapter so i can use the curve charger and adapt for the new I-phone 5, which supposedly now has a different plug than the last model. I called Fry's Electronics and they said no such animal. Still using the Blackberry Curve.

    Last I heard Apple is not going to release any info to third parties to make accessories for the 5. It had a special chip in it to charge.

    Thanks to all the negativity in this thread(lol)
    my Blackberry died yesterday. I'll have to use my Samsung A177H until I can find a good deal on a iPhone(5).

    I never thought I would see a company blow their dominance as bad as Microsoft, but RIM did it in double-time. Too little, too late. They will deservedly be put down. Hard to fathom a non-governmental entity being so incompetent.
