I am in the market for a new phone, at least I think I am. I got a letter from Verizon a few months ago about upgrading and didn't think too much about it since the iphone STILL isn't available for anyone who refuses to use AT&T...but then a few weeks ago my rollerball started to act quirky. I took the advice of the high schoolers who babysit for Luz and James and dismantled the phone, removed the rollerball, cleaned it, replaced it and did it again and again and again. Lather. Rinse. Repeat for the Blackberry Curve I suppose. Why oh why does Blackberry make a phone so incredibly reliant on the rollerball - something that will inevitably break leaving the user with no available options. How about adding a key function that allows you to scroll, c'mon?
So, I need a new phone. The rollerball works every now and then, after much tlc and way more time than I am willing to dedicate to a phone. Now I just have to decide - do I go with the mostly reliable and yet incredibly boring line of blackberries out there on the market,?
