So now I’ve done it! I’ve joined the cult and bought a Blackberry. After months of research and hemming and hawing and trying to figure out whether I should go with a Blackberry, iPhone (even though I am SO not hip enough for that) or even switch to T-Mobile and get the G1, I just went and did it.
AT&T must be getting ready to bring in some new models, because even though I’m not eligible for a discounted upgrade until sometime in December, they were offering an early upgrade to their Blackberry Curves in either Titanium or Red for the low price of… FREE! I noticed it on their website over the weekend and I just had to jump on the offer. It looks like they were also offering the Bold, but they were already long gone by the time I noticed the offer. So if you’re an AT&T user and are considering upgrading to a smart phone, this is a great way to do it and you should probably jump on it fast!
I had planned to wait until the brand new ones came out this Summer, but any way I looked at it I was going to be spending an awful lot of money and you just can’t beat free. And while the Curve won’t be the latest and greatest, I’m sure I will be more than satisfied with it as it will be a hell of a lot more phone than I’m accustomed to.
So I’m super psyched now. I love new toys 🙂 It should be coming in probably either sometime tomorrow or Wednesday and that, like everyone, I’ll be instantly addicted. And hey, now you can all refer to me as a crackhead and really mean it!
