Blackberry – Out of the Loop

The Blackberry trend is in full swing in Kuwait, literally I see one every where. And now most of our group of friends have one except for a few of us, I tend to like have only 12 buttons to choose from when texting.

They have now made groups so they are texting each other instantly with huge group chats. BBMs flying left, right, and center, and for those that don’t know BBM stands for Blackberry Messenger. BBMs are free since they go through the Blackberry service and not through text messages, so you save on text messages if everyone you know is on Blackberry and in our group it seems to be the case, I am getting less text messages now then I did a few months ago.

Will I be joining this band wagon, I don’t know, I know I will get used to the full keyboard but I like just having a normal phone. The one thing that really annoys me is seeing someone trying to text while driving with a Blackberry which is suicide since you HAVE to look where you are typing. Now we have to see Viva or Wataniya bring this service on-board as well.

A guy who is just trying to enjoy life!

    The juice looks good! China watermelon juice! And you should get a bb! Its fun! And quite entertaining! You get used the keyboard faster than you think!

  2. im a BBM addict – oo ams my BB decided to act up on me and im suffering. im back to nokia for today and i feel its a crap phone. once u bb u never go back

  3. I might have switched over had my line been Zain. If Wataniya get the BB service I just might though.. who knows. We’ll see, and as you said its getting ridiculous lol! Everyone and his mother is getting on BBM service.

  4. BBM is good but as you’ve seen you need a few users before it’s worth the switch. I’ve been using BB for years (work) and the devices have finally become 21st Century.

    I know VIVA are working on the BB agreement – I’m sure Wataniya are doing the same.

  7. My BB hasn’t been working for 2 months and i feel just like you said Out of the loop! I’m missing out on all the things that are going on with them! They stopped SMSing me completely! lol It’s annoying!
