Alas, I hold out no longer. I have joined the Crackberry crowd. I bought the new Q10 and OMG, I'm ashamed to say I love it. Now I just have to learn how to use it properly. (And remember to keep it charged and on my person--a far greater challenge for me!) The keyboard is wonderful. Even my arthritic fingers can manage it.

Are there any quirks/problems/neat things I need to know about this bit of technology? I'd appreciate any/all help!

Lynn... Welcome to Crackberry World...

The Q10 is very new... but I am planning to get it soon... VERY soon!!!

I'm glad to hear you love it. I don't know of any quirks/problems or neat things yet... but I'll keep you posted as soon as I get mine.

Jrc, my S/O works in wireless so he always has the latest, and he's always hounding me for being a Luddite far as cell phones are concerned. His protestations about my lack of connectedness fell on deaf ears, but then my son and daughter added their voices. Mummy has a tendency to face plant (haven't had my annual one yet!) and they think I should be able to call for help if needed. Blah blah blah. What decided me was attending an art show/sale and seeing young artists taking credit cards on their smart phones! Ah yes, that I can relate to. I'll let my S/O and kids think they won, but really it was totally a business decision! Now I wonder what took me so long. My daughter got all excited yesterday morning, texting with me as I rode the streetcar--LOL. She never thought she'd see the day. Neither did I.

I've been in the Crackberry World for just a few short years... but I love it.

I don't want to go to a non-physical (touch screen) keyboard... I hope I don't have to.

I had phones with QWERTY keyboards prior to my Crackberry... Not ready to go to an all touch screen. And I'm not an APP junky so I don't miss that.

I really want an Iphone for a few reasons but as long as Blackberry has that keyboard they will have my business. I am due for an upgrade soon and was considering the Q10. My current 3 year old blackberry will be off contract soon though and it still does what I need it to do so I will hold off until it's too outdated to work properly.

My current Blackberry Bold isn't working well at all... the Keyboard is complete crap... buttons stick and repeat...

But overall it's a good phone.

My S/O has an older model BB--still new, but not the newest-- but he took one look at mine and I swear to God, he started to salivate!

I think that's what S/O has, too. You have to pull the keyboard out from the main body of the phone????

No. It's all on the front. No pulling!

But now I have the white BlackBerry Q10!!! I got it just this morning and I am in love already.

Yay! The camera is really quite good. I photographed my friends' peonies during this weekend's kayaking trip. Great quality in the closeups.

Awesome News Lynn...

I goofed and deleted a bunch of emails from the phone and they deleted from my email on the computer too... and now I can't recover them... but that's not the phones fault.
