I'm with Solo Mobile. LOVE THEM. Can't stress that. They are a pure pleasure to have as a wireless carrier. Anytime I end up needing to call their customer support, I hang up so happy at the end of the call. Never got that with Rogers (EVER).

The only shitty thing now w/ them though is they're REALLY reduced their plans (nothing good anymore IMO)... and their phone selection blows.

I got with them in 07 when they had wicked fall deals going on (and many more plans in general). I also got a Nokia 6275i back then, which I loved.

I've had that Nokia, a Moto Q and my current BlackBerry Pearl 8130. Loved all those phones. Think of the rest of their selection's are pretty shite though.

So pretty much, Solo rocks (IMO) if you got with them back when they had better plans, and so long as u liked one of the 5-6 phones they are/were offering.

Check and check for me.



Oh, and unless they *just* got the Bold, you're being mislead (i could be wrong though, of course). They only Berry they carry AFAIK is the Pearl, which I have. The 8130 in white.


EDIT:
The other thing I LOVE about Solo... 30 days plans FTMFW!!!!!!!!!!!!
FUCK CONTRACTS! SERIOUSLY! Never EVER been in one, never wanna be!
Every phone, every plan, you chose 30 days, 1yr, 2yr or 3yrs.

(Not like Rogers where often their very best ones are a minimum of 2 years... or they were when i was checking them out back in 06 or 07 before I made the happy switch to Solo)

i can't try any apps because i have no space. they just did the whole upgrade for my unit and i hoped that with this one they would allow apps to be stored on the expandable chip but no. is it really that hard? it's not even like i want all those garbage iPhone apps but some useful things would be good.

Aerize Card Loader - SD card install utility

Get the most out of your BlackBerry® device by installing applications to and from removable media cards. Aerize Card Loader installs and removes applications to your device from its micro SD media card. The only limit to the number of applications you can keep on hand is the size of your SD media card.

Running applications, stored files, and the operating system all compete for the same memory on BlackBerry® devices. Unfortunately, this limits the amount of games and applications that can reliably be loaded onto the device at one time. Once you ve installed Aerize Card Loader, this limit will be forever shattered.

---

NOTE: Only applications added to the SD media card can be loaded. Applications must first be manually added to the media card.

I have not tried it, but heard good things... I'm not app hungry tho...


Nice! Thx for informing us about this.... I may have to break down and check out this app... I only have the Pearl, so I got 65 MB onbard... thus essentially only like 20 MBs free to use for apps... which can and does disappear pretty quick!

Have a prob to move these apps from device storage to microSD storage is great -- why the fuck isn't that even a core option with berries?!!?!? Bc it fucking should be!

Retarded being forced to keep them on the limited device memory when u can use SD cards!

^^^

Be aware (as apparently this is a common misconception)

That this progrqam, Aerize Card Loader, doesn't actually install the app on the SD card.

It merely stores the install file for the app on the SD card so it can be “easily” installed ("loaded") and uninstalled ("unloaded") off device memory.

The same memory concern is still essentially an issue. Only now if you dont use a program very much, you can remove it from your device memory, but still leave a link to re-loading it stored on your SD card with this app.

How this can help with the memory situation is by removing a bunch of apps off ur phone onto the SD card, and then only installing the apps as you actually need them (presumably u dont need them all at the same time), so that way ur memory isnt all taken up as it would be if all these apps were installed in ur device memory.

Annoyingly, most appps prompt you about needing to reboot ur device once they've been unloaded or loaded.


This app wasnt the solution I was hoping it'd be.

C'mon RIM... just let us install apps ACTUALLY ON the SD card themselves!!

There are some serious security concerns with installing apps on SD cards.

Yup, that's already happening (though nothing close to, say, the iPhone's level of internal memory).

Big improvements regardless though.



The other trouble w/ BB app memory is that BB allocate only a certain portion of its on board memory to apps... so it may have like 1GB in it, but it'll only designate, say, 250MB to apps (made even more annoying when u find out that the OS eats into that designated app memory too). That's another issue I think shoudl be addressed. AFAIK, other platforms dont do this. Pretty positive Win Mobile doesn't.

Someone who knows more on this can correct me or expand on this better.

This is just what I recall from reading about blackberrys and the whole memory issue that's been a sore point for many users for a while now.

that's incorrect...

the 1GB internal memory has nothing to do with apps but just built in extra space for saving stuff.

what you should look at is the size of flash memory...on my storm for example it's 128MB (coincidentally, the storm 2 now has 256 MB so RIM did step up on that complaint)

however, this flash memory seems to be where apps are installing AND caching which is what's my sore with the whole thing...


I just deleted the default games that come with the storm (word mole) and a few unneccessary default things like BB help etc and now from 5MB left, I have 26 MB left...lol wow

oh and DigitalMP.. about opera on storm

to copy and paste in the address bar or submit areas as well as clearing or editing the 6 speed dial cubes, you have to press for a few seconds (dont click press...just stay in contact with the screen for a few seconds) and you will see a small popup with such options. discovered it by chance..lol

I'm going to try to negotiate a better monthly plan with the possible acquisition of the BB 9700.

Please post how much you're paying a month and what goes with(plan details) so I can get an idea of what deals you guys get for the money and play ball better with Rogers. I see more and more people negotiate their plans, which is smart.

I just never bothered with the price because all I cared for was service and never had problems. Today the price starts to ache the pockets.

Cheers.

I'm with Telus and my plan is

- 500 MB data
- unlimited in/out texts (special given to me)
- 200 daytime mins (100 bonus minutes for me)
- unlimited incoming calls ($10 extra)
- 10 msg voicemail (usually $7 more)
- Caller ID, conference calling, call forwarding (usually $7 more)

all for $60 flat

telus now includes the service access fees in the base price itself so keep that in mind when comparing prices
