Just wanted to stop in and introduce myself.
My name is Kevin, I am with Verizon, DUH! I have the DROID...
I had the BlackBerry Storm 2 and (as I've stated many times before) I have wondered if there was life after BlackBerry.
Here is my story:
My ship set sail many years ago, I sailed with windows for a while and then for some reason that ship sank. After floating for several months this cruise ship called BlackBerry headed my way. I was rescued... YAY!!!
I sailed with them for many years, five (5) to be exact. I thought that was the best thing since they invented the tire.
After being around BlackBerry and her crew for that long I was kind of brain washed into thinking that that was the way of life. You know, sitting on the side of the ship painting (BBM), scraping barnacles (push email) and such. I was set in my ways and very happy.
Well, one day the ship docked and we went ashore... OMG!!
I saw something, it was on the other side of the docks. "What is that" I asked myself. Well, as you know, we like to explore. I went and looked. "What in the world is this" I asked myself again.
I was mesmorized, really. I can't believe I sailed for 5 years on that ship (of course I had no choice, I was floating.)
I saw this new ship sitting at the dock and it kept calling me... "Kevin, Kevin, come here." I couldn't believe it.
Is this what I have been searching for... I saw that my ship "BlackBerry" was loading up from shore, I ran and hid. I knew I couldn't go back, there was just no way. Yes, there was a tear as I watched my ship sailing away, but, but, it wasn't a tear of sadness. I found her, my NEW ship...
DROID... OMG!!! I can't believe it. I thought I had everything, I really did. I found my new ship, and you know what, they said I didn't have to paint or scrape anymore. They said I could go and do as I pleased (Market, Home++, GDE, etc, etc)
I am now sailing with the Motorola DROID. This is the BEST phone I have found yet. (had the iPhone, didn't like it. Notice the first word there... "had")
So, here I am, here with you, sailing new seas, with lot's on the horizon. I hope to explore and learn all I can. To be as good with my DROID as I was with my BlackBerry.
So, to answer that question above: YES! There is life after BlackBerry. It is called... DROID!
Lots of X BB users here, including me. Go Android!!!!!Welcome.
We've all said this a lot in the recent months, but given your introduction, it's never been more appropriate, "Welcome aboard."
Very entertaining intro. Welcome.
Welcome aboard, shipmate! It's like going from a tugboat to a tender to a cruise liner!
Thank you all for the "smooth sailing" and the warm welcome.
I have a membership at CB, and am at around 665 posts. I knew alot about the BlackBerry and was able to help discuss many problems with them. I hope to make it as high in posts here as I was there.
Given the DROID, I am still learning... BIG time... There is so much more to do with the DROID. I haven't put it down since I've had it. The DROID is as addicting to use as the BlackBerry ever was.
I love the market and all the different apps it has to offer (big increase from BB app world). I have GDE and just got home++. I will probably be using the home++ since it gives me 7 (not 3) home screens to use like the Eris does.
Thank you again for your welcome.
welcome! youll love it! share the secrets you find; you never know what surprises nobody else knows about.
and from your story, i imagine your reports are very detailed
defense lawyers must hate you, lol. (i know the feeling)
Haha, nice story. I was a BBer once in a time aswell.
I jumped from the Storm 9530 to the DROID
