My Blackberry, sniff sniff :(

My blackberry is behaving very erratically. At times it gives up and refuses to switch on. At times, it hangs.. wherein I cant make or receive calls, or sms. Some keys refuse to work - like I mentioned in my previous post, I just realised I use the keys N and H a lot!!! Its transferring mechanism from phone to laptop stopped working long time back. And its buttons (all rubber frame) fell off.. dont ask me how. First it was the volume button and then the camera and then whatever was left...  in order of usage. I use the phone a lot.. mis'use' as my husband would put it as.

I have about 200 songs on my phone.. about 100+ photographs .. the ones I keep posting as "pic of the week"... about 50 odd videos (all corrupted now).. I text a lot.. ever since I started using instant messenger on my BB, I stopped counting. Its for free you see!!! :)

So as I said, I use(d) my phone a lot.

Now am wondering which phone to pick up. I really like blackberry 8520 (my current phone), and A says I can just pick up the same phone...!!!!! Men will be men!!!!!!!!!!! I of course would love to try out something new.

You all must have understood my usage pattern - so please to suggest what should I buy now!!! I don't have any touchscreen preference. Even if I have a touch, I would prefer to have a QWERTY keyboard too. Any ideas??

iPhone of course! It's the qwerty keyboard that appears on the touch-screen ;). You'll enjoy the phone Moonshine. Try it.

Yeah? The only thing I dont like is that the messages pop up and are visible to everyone!!!!

What a coincidence! My phone conked out on me too. I refused to buy another phone for a week in honour of my phone which served me loyally for 4 years. I went and bought a HTC yesterday. Very nice. Touchpad and all that. Has WiFi, 3G, FB, Twitter. It also lets you make Skype calls from the phone. IPhone is cool but the latest one is too expensive. IPhone3 is already outdated (Sorry Besunni) :)

@Gobri You much got the HTC for? And is it user friendly? I basically use my phone for texting, music,pictures and calls. That is it. I am tempted to pick up iphone.. it is toooo expensive.. and recently I have been on a spending spree!!!!! I am still using my BB..it works when slapped.. it is a really nice phone.. and that one week thing you talked about.. I did that with my motorola razr.. I dont like changing phones too much.. I get attached to it :)

Moonshine, I have pretty much the same use of the phone as you. It has a 5 mp camera. Texting is qwerty and it shows the entire conversation string like in iphone. Mine is called HTC wildfire. I got it for 12k odd. There are more expensive ones too but this one is snazzy enough and serves my purpose.

@Gobri This weekend I plan to do phone hunting.. Let me check wildfire out!!! Nice name.. I am already attracted to it :)

iPhone of course :)
one needs to pay a bit more for it, we all know that, dont we? :)
HTC is pretty good and it looks good too. If you are getting a touch screen, no touch phone ever works like iPhone!

Moonshine said...

@melee Everyone seems to be rooting for iphone!!!!!!!!!! Lets see... it is quite expensive!!!

mêlée said...

when I suggest, I know well that I am not paying for the expensive iPhone...so suggesting it is easy :)
But yeah since you would be buying it, you need to think carefully. Browsing through review sites may also throw more options. HTC wildfire and Samsung wave and galaxy are both good options!

@melee I am quite tempted to buy an iphone. And I am halfheartedly checking reviews and details of other phones. Checked Blackberry Torch also!!!
