SMS is strictly text only, you'd need MMS but that will probably cost something. Sending pics over BBM is free though.


and i guess i can just upload them to facebook or whatever. that's kinda inconvenient though, i wish i could just send them over a text like with any other phone.

Like I said, you can :P But it's not very popular and both parties would be charged for MMS unless MMS is included in your plan. I get charged 50 cents for sending/receiving and I'm with Fido.

Btw if you haven't joined the CDC BBM group.. JOIN NOW!

Sounds like there will be a new version of BBM being released not too long from now!

...and also, RIM responds to Steve Jobs & Apple's allegations that the antenna problem happens to every smart phone out there.

I just ordered in my Bold from Telus yesterday and should be here within the next two days.

Are there any good apps/programs that would be beneficial for other features (don't know if this would be understood, but I have no other way of wording it :P)

I am getting ScoreMobile for BB, and other sports related apps out there (ESPN etc.?)

Thanks for the help :)

I actually disliked Score Mobile quite a bit. Didn't like the layout.

Apps on my Crackberry:

If your signature has more lines than the majority of your posts, it's too big.

I'm really interested in purchasing a blackberry but I'm not sure about a couple o things.
The data plan. How many megabytes of space do you need.
Whether to go with a new bold/curve or a older model (with ball navigation) pearl for $200 cheaper.
Also which networks are you on and good/bad experiences. I Currently with fido and have nothing too bad to say about them.
I am not interested in a 3 year term.
Much thanks in advance!

Data plans would depend on the phone carrier. BlackBerrys compress data before sending it to your phone so it doesn't use as much (I have 500MB/mo and it's plenty). I'd recommend a Bold 9700 or a newer Curve. I have the Bold 9000 and it can be glitchy at times. But, overall, I like it and I'm most likely going to get another BlackBerry when I upgrade.

It really depends on what you do with your BlackBerry. It's different for every person. I only had Voice/Text when I first got my BlackBerry (Fido) and I just requested a BBM + Social networking add-on after. I had data for a short amount of time but I thought I was paying too much so I took that out.

What OS is your Bold running? What kind of "glitches" are you experiencing?

When I upgraded to OS 5 from OS 4, I was very happy with the results :)

Ok... so I'm trying to upgrade my BB software to 5.0, but it keeps saying insufficient space on my phone and can't install. The problem is I just rebooted my entire phone, and it is pretty much clear of non-factory data. How do I clear more stuff of my phone in order to install? (I have 15 MB? I assume I need at least 50 or something...

It randomly deletes my SMS messages. Sometimes my phone freezes. Occasionally, BBM messages don't get sent/received until a lot later. I haven't upgraded yet so I might do that.

I'm thinking that you have to wipe your entire phone (using BBSAK or a program that's similar) before loading OS 5. Check CrackBerry.com for more detailed instructions

Yeah sounds like upgrading/restoring it would "fix" it

Anyone know a good place for ringtones? I am looking to get C.R.E.A.M (a techno song), and can't seem to find it anywhere. Anyone know where/already have this ringtone? Any help would be great :)

You can use any song as a ringtone from your computer. Just crop it and put it on your phone.

iPhone is touchscreen and Bold 9700 isn't. iPhone has more apps and games. BB has BBM (instant messenger between BB's)...etc.

I really don't get the whole BB vs iPhone debate that people seem to get into all the time. It really boils down to preference.
