Podcast Episode 040: Best CrackBerry Podcast Ever!

Podcast Episode 040: Best CrackBerry Podcast Ever!

Well, I'm not really sure that this is the best CrackBerry Podcast ever, but with Adam jumping ship on this show in order to spend some time with his family (son's birthday!)

I'm always on the account manager and this is the first time I noticed that it didn't just say "9000 (Bold)" like it normally does.

While any details like "BlackBerry" or "Verizon" don't appear, any CrackBerry user knows exactly what device it is. That familiar Deeet...

Why I Love My BlackBerry Curve 8520

 Why I Love My BlackBerry Curve 8520
