new phone?

I can't believe I'm even thinking about getting a Blackberry!
Someone please talk me into or out of it! :D

Yes, it's a 2.0 camera as well as a phone.
My regular one is better but I don't usually carry it around with me.
And it looks like I might be able to post them right online. Was Flickr part of LJ or Yahoo? Yahoo, I think. What about Facebook? Don't know that one. As for MySpace, I haven't used that in absolute ages.
Yes, it's a PDA. I can take my spreadsheets & lists with me!
Yes, I could go online anywhere I can get a signal...for an extra $30 a month. I could go on LJ at work! But do I really need to go online or can it wait until I get home?
Yes, it has GPS capabilities for hiking and biking as well as vehicular travel...for an extra $9 a month. How often do I get into unfamiliar territory?
Might be able to use the Blackberry Maps system without the GPS...just use Mapquest, you're already online! :D
Yes, it has a media player that I might be able to use instead of the iPod...and run the battery down faster on the phone. Probably won't use much though I may keep a couple of my favorite Dido songs on there! lol
Hmmm, I can use it as a modem for my laptop when I go camping...I'd no longer have to sit in the clubhouse/lodge but could enjoy the peace and quiet of the campsite!

The unlimited Internet access is standard (an extra $30 a month) but the GPS ($9 a month) is optional. Decisions, decisions.

My brother has a blackberry, but he cancelled the internet on it because he wasn't using it. That's all I know about that, though!

They told me I had to have internet service with that. But then the person at the store had to get someone else to answer a couple questions I had about the phones. Sounds like I need to find a more informed and knowledgable store, huh?
Thanks for the heads up. The PDA and the camera are the two functions I'm most interested in aquiring with a new phone and neither of those require internet service.

How will you upload the pictures, though?

They use a USB connection to the computer. The pictures and document files are also stored on a Micro SD card and can be downloaded through a card reader.

Here's another fishing joke for you:

The Presidential election was too close to call. Neither the Republican candidate nor the Democratic candidate had enough votes to win. There was much talk about ballot recounting, court challenges, etc., but a week-long ice fishing competition seemed the sportsmanlike way to settle things. The candidate that caught the most fish at the end of the week would win the election.

Therefore, it was decided that there should be an ice fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the winner. After much of back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest take place on a remote frozen lake in northern Minnesota.

There were to be no observers present, and both men were to be sent out
separately on this isolated lake and return at 5 P.M. with their catch for counting and verification by a team of neutral parties. At the end of the first day, John Mc. returned to the starting line and he had ten fish.

Soon, Obama returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed he was just having another 'bad hair' day or something and hopefully, he would catch up the next day.

At the end of the 2nd day John Mc. came in with 20 fish and Obama came in again with none.

That evening, Harry Reid got together secretly with Obama and said, 'Obama, I think John Mc. is a low-life, cheatin' son-of-a-gun. I want you to go out tomorrow and don't even bother with fishing. Just spy on him and see just how he is cheating.'

The next night (after John Mc. returns with 50 fish), Harry said to Obama, 'Well, tell me, how is John Mc. cheating?'
Obama replied, 'Harry, you're not going to believe this, but he's cutting holes in the ice.'
