    I'm an iPhoner for life (and yes I just created the word "iPhoner!"). Problem is GM is pushing me to get a Blackberry, and there is no way I'm paying $400 for a Bold.

    Does anyone have an old Blackberry they want to sell?

    PS Long live the iPhone!

    I bet our boy Alex has a few laying around. My wife gets my BlackBerry hand-me-downs...

    I have been thinking about switching over to ATT and I do so I might have a New Curve available but it would be for Tmobile.

    What service provider do you have?

    I'm not selling one of my Blackberries to a hater! J/K - Blake already hit me up. I'm down to just having a Storm in the "old stock pile" and a buddy of mine wants to buy it. Blake is on AT&T and I'm on Verizon so he should get a Bold or the new Curve anyway.

    Jeff,
    If your switching from T Mobile to At&t, find a phone geek and have him unlock it for you. You should not have to get a new phone, I was told it's really easy.

    T-mobile will send you the code, just call or email them.

    there's probably a video or how to post for every phone, its not hard to do.

    Why do you feel GM is trying to push you to get a BlackBerry?

    I haven't tried yet but try to look for a Template app like xTemplate for BB's to respond to leads with a template.

    Even though im only 27 the guys in our internet department treat me like a fossil becasue I love my blackberry! They are absolute die hard iphone guys! I know your going to miss your iphone, but I just got a blackberry bold for work a few months back and its been great. I have no problem getting my emails or leads. We use imagiclab and I just have them forwarded to the device. I also find typing to be much easier on the keyboard than the touch screen. Ill be interested to see what you think after using one for a while compared to the iphone.
