What’s that? Ketchums Is Back In The Blackberry World?

You read correctly, folks. As some of you may know, a stint of unemployment saw my treasured Blackberry 8800 go out of commission. And ever since I’m back on the working scene, I’ve been looking for an opportunity to get a plan popping off with a new provider. Hook-ups at Sprint came and went, and while I’ve still got a couple connections over there that could’ve gotten me cheaper plans, I couldn’t pass this up.

Looks like AT&T saw my Blackberry plight a while ago, and decided to make the decision for me. Yesterday, the company caught a bewildering case of the real and held an unparalleled one-day-only promotion: a free refurbished Blackberry Bold with a new contract. While I’m sure that a lot of people couldn’t take advantage of this because of cell phone plans they’re already signed to, the opportunity fit Ketchums’ situation like a glove. I pounced, and I should receive my new device in the mail on Tuesday, Mar. 31. It seems that nearly everyone in my crew has gotten Blackberrys since mine went out of business, but don’t get it twisted: amidst my circle, I’m still the resident Blackberry guru. Realistic talk.

This blog is to ask all my readers for a couple of things:

  1. Your BBM (Blackberry Messanger) info. Also known as your PIN number. To find it, go to Options >> Status. I’ma be chattin’ it up with y’all ninjas, seriously; that’s my favorite application on the Blackberry, for the most part.
  2. Whoever has the Bold, what do you think of it? Pros? Cons? I’ve already read the Boy Genius Report review, but I’d still like some feedback from people I’m actually cool with.
  3. What’s the best Twitter application for the Blackberry, now? I was using TwitterBerry, but I’ve been hearing that there are better ones.

That’s all for now. But I’m super-geeked about this.
