Verizon Wireless Nationwide Messaging Data Only Plans

In what seems to be a never ending line of "new plans", Verizon Wireless introduced their new Nationwide Messaging plans which are geared towards users who just don't seem to eat up their voice minutes (much like myself).  The plans are available for most handsets including PDAs and BlackBerry devices.  The new plans include unlimited text, IM, picture and video messaging, and offer per-minute...

Rumor: BlackBerry 9000 To Have Front-Facing Camera

Rumor: BlackBerry 9000 To Have Front-Facing Camera

A Spanish blogger has been fortunate enough to get his hands on a BlackBerry 9000. AND...he has let word out (by accident?) that the device has a front-facing video camera. No word on if this camera is in addition to the more traditional rear-facing camera. Keep this one under unconfirmed rumors at this point. Could be hogwash. Can you imagine the possibilities though. With RIM finally offering...

Out of the Box Review: T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl 8120

Out of the Box Review: T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl 8120

The new Pearl 8120 arrives at T-Mobile The Pearl 8120 has been out and about in the global community for awhile now, but it is just now making its way to the major North American carriers. AT&T released their version of the 8120 last month, and I was confused as ever as to why they released it instead of the 8110. Since AT&T does not have a UMA feature, it just did not make any...

Have you ever forgotten to send an email off on time?  Or even to give your boss a call like you were supposed to over 3 hours ago?? The good people at Link-Two offer a few applications to help you...

New BlackBerry? Put the BlackBerry PIN Exchange to Use!

New BlackBerry? Put the BlackBerry PIN Exchange to Use!

I had an awesome weekend for a couple of reasons: one, the weather was beautiful and two, on Friday the UPS man delivered my new BlackBerry Curve 8320 (thanks again Dieter ) so I had a new toy to play with! It wasn't too big of a jump for me - I retired my AT&T 8300 (bought it the first day they hit the market) and moved into the T-Mobile's WiFi equipped Curve. Other than the change of color...

Review: Solio Hybrid 1000 Solar-Powered ReCharger

Review: Solio Hybrid 1000 Solar-Powered ReCharger

Use the Sun to Charge Your BlackBerry! It seems apt that I am writing this with Earth Day coming up on April 22nd. Green is all the rage these days and while even Al Gore uses a BlackBerry there is no getting away from the fact that they do run on electricity. So, while it might be the size of a squirrel’s paw, the little device does leave a carbon footprint. Thankfully, there is a...

BELL Gets the BlackBerry Curve 8330 Smartphone

Not far behind Telus, but still way ahead of Verizon and Sprint, Canada's other CDMA carrier Bell has released the BlackBerry 8330 Curve! No, it doesn't ship with the CrackBerry.com Theme (that's just me procrastinating on housework on a Saturday afternoon, and you can get the theme here for free), but it does ship with all of the other CDMA BlackBerry Curve goodness - video recording...

Rihanna Loves Flowery Jumpsuits... and her BlackBerry

Rihanna Loves Flowery Jumpsuits... and her BlackBerry

TGIF... it's time for a quick Celebrity BlackBerry Sighting! Today it's the lovely Rihanna sporting a BlackBerry in her left hand. I can't quite tell which model... probably a curve of some sort. At first glance from the picture on the left it reminded me of my old 8700! I think Rihanna wins the award for 'most flowers on dress per square inch' here. That's one flowery... jumpsuit? Is that...

RIM Sticker Sighting - Not QUITE a CrackBerry!

In the CrackBerry podcasts, my co-host Craig Johnston ocassionally likes to show off his wisdom (err.. show off his age?! just kidding Craig!) by talking about the early days of Research in Motion and the company's pre-BlackBerry gadgets.  So when I came across this post by member drg1138 in the CrackBerry forums this morning I just had to share it. Drg1138 stumbled upon a RIM sticker on a...
