Hello everyone, haven't posted anything in quite sometime I know. I'm sorry about that but I'm a little more busy than I used to be, but I hope to keep this blog up a little more than I have.
Anyways, recently I was given a blackberry curve 8320 to replace my old phone and at first I was thinking that I didn't really need it, I'm not a business man. Though, after messing with it for awhile I realized that its more than just for a strict business man. Discovering the App World, made me think I was holding an Iphone. Sadly without a data plan (yes I don't have data plan with a blackberry, crazy right?) I can't access the store. On the other hand, I can still download many apps over the air and from my computer to my blackberry. While I was searching around I found that www.crackberry.com and www.blackberryforums.com were the most helpful to me. Crackberry has great helpful tips and tricks for first time blackberry users. I think it is great how the phone has shortcuts and I can set speed dial to every key! (except the function keys of course).
Now the device memory is very limited and it is a must to buy a micro sd card or else you will lose messages and your call logs. I bought an 8gb micro sdhc card from www.newegg.com for only $18. Usually I see those cards at prices near the hundreds.
Oh I almost forgot, I have encountered two problems with the phone. One that I fixed was with the camera, where I would get a black screen when i turn the camera on and had to take out the battery to get rid of. Another smaller, but annoying issue is that sometimes the phone's top speaker didn't make any sound. It comes and goes, hasn't happened to me in about a week.
That concludes my life with a blackberry, thanks for reading. If you have any questions about how I fixed my camera problem or any tips for me I'd be happy to read them.
