Sorry, they need to make a new blue tooth headset. The only premium one they have is the one from the 9700 bold. The one with the leather face. Time to do an upgrade.

Is there anyway shopcrackberry can come online through BlackBerry World? Shopcrackberry gets the sale, we get carrier billing. A win win.

Just a thought.

Alas my 76 year old mum doesn't even know or want to know how to make a call on a mobile (cell) phone, never mind do anything else on it, so I'll just stick with the flowers and a meal for her when it comes round again next time in the UK.

For moms that don't know how to use a smart phone, just buy her some blackberries, and don't forget to throw away rotten apples.

Depending on how voting goes Blaq may be the second best app out there for the Z10!
