HTC Droid Eris :: Former BlackBerry User Looking For Something To Replace BlackBerry Messenger

Jan 20, 2010

I recently came over from using a Blackberry (and using the Blackberry Messenger app), and I am wondering what you all might suggest as an easy way to briefly send quick messages (not using SMS or email) that would be easy to set up on my end and for my Blackberry friends.Currently I do not have any chat systems or instant messaging systems set up (as never used any of that before), so I am hoping you can make your suggestions very simple to understand and set up. I'm somewhat new to all this technology, but I am anxious to learn.

Motorola Droid :: Blackberry Messenger Application

Nov 27, 2009

the biggest disappointment for us die-hard BB fans was losing the BBM. Is there a app or a question that a app could be built for the droid so we could re-connect with our RIM friends?I know the BB os is secure and specific but there is ways around everything these days. So is it possible? or has this been asked?

Motorola :: Blackberry User / Switching To Droid

Jan 4, 2010

I am a die-hard Blackberry user but I'm gonna give the Droid a shot later this week,and I've been lurking around these forums for the last few days but I'd like to just get a couple of things confirmed before I take the leap.

1) I'm hearing and reading a lot about problems with yahoo email setup, even that some of the fixes/workarounds don't work. Anyone?

2) Does the Droid have true threaded text messaging?

3) What's the deal with notifications on the Droid? I really can't survive without my notifications (vibrations, sounds, blinking light) for missed calls/voicemails/emails/texts/calendar appts and I thought I read that the Droid doesn't really handle these very well...or at all.

4) This is a personal preference question but how are you guys dealing with the lack of physical send and end buttons?

Android :: Closest Thing To Blackberry Messenger?

Nov 20, 2009

I accept the fact that I can't install Blackberry Messenger on my Droid. This was a very handy app on my Blackberry because it was more instant than a text message (and free which is handy for my BB friends without free texting), and you didn't have to be "logged on" to get a message. I asked the Verizon rep (who's only complaint when he switched to the Droid), and he said Google Talk did the same thing. I installed it and told one of my BB buddies to do the same, but you need to be logged in to get messages. Is Google Talk my best bet or is there something better?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1/X2 :: BlackBerry Connect / Messenger On SE X1?

Nov 20, 2010

I have been looking for months now, for a way of running the blackberry software on the X1. Its a hot topic around the forums and over on XDA developers, but no one has been able to explain if this is possible for sure. I have the standard ROM that came with the phone, and am with Vodafone.There has been talk of it working, and there has been talk of it not. I have heard that it can run on some HTC models, which leads me to beleive it should also be possible (some how) on the X1.

Android :: Former Blackberry User With Google Calendar

Jan 30, 2010

I am a former Blackberry user and I always used Google Sync to sync my calendar and contacts with my google account. This was done automatically, and I was able to choose how long I wanted to go back and go forward. I could go back 4 weeks and forward 24 weeks.

When I got my droid today, the salesperson at Verizon set it up with my google account. And it synced my contacts just fine. But it only synced my calendar from today forward for only one week.

I have searched and searched, and nowhere can I find where I can adjust these settings to sync for a longer period of time.

Also, does the Droid use the google sync app?

Samsung Captivate :: Blackberry User To First Time Android

Aug 27, 2010

I will be purchasing the Samsung Captivate tmrw from the AT&T store after work. Planning to pay $379 for the no commitment since I'm not eligible for an upgrade right now. This will be my very FIRST Android phone. I have no experience what so ever. With that being said, I'm a big Blackberry user, and will be coming from the Blackberry Bold 9000. Is anyone here also an ex-blackberry user? How will the transition be? anything I'll be missing from the bb that wont be on the captivate? I love my blackberry, its a great phone, it does what I need with emails in a heart beat. It's just lacking a lot in multimedia and web browsing, and I'm sure I'm probably missing out on a lot of other cool stuff too especially since I'm paying $30 a month for data plan. Emails & Calendars are very important for me. How will the push email be on the Captivate / Android? I handle 4 email accounts with a mix of Gmail and non gmail. As far as calendars go, I have really bad memory so all my dates and important daily task needs to be in my phone. My brother has an iphone 4, it seems great and all, but not to offend anyone, the OS seems kinda "dumbed down" for kids. It seems to lack a lot of options and customization compared to all the options and choices I had on my blackberry. I've read a lot about how the android lets you customize a lot, so hopefully I'll be going in the right path.

Android :: Easier Transition BlackBerry To Droid?

Dec 21, 2009

I'm sure a lot of us using the Droid are coming from a BlackBerry. Well here is what I miss: Being able to skip tracks by just holding down the +/- Volume for 2 Seconds. (Instead you have unlock the screen and hope you're still in the app for your media player.) Flip to your next picture with a flick. This was fixed with "Multi-Touch Gallery for Droid" A facebook app that lets you check Live Feed and your Inbox.
^Same thing for MySpace Custom LED color for different Alerts.

Motorola Droid X :: Blackberry Tour Charger Not Sufficient

Aug 6, 2010

The first couple of days i had my x i decided to keep using the charger from the tour to charge my x and just use my x charger as a usb sync cable to my computer. After a couple of days of going six hours on an over night charge and not being able to find a solution i decided to use the x charger instead and ended up getting 18 hours out of my battery. Im not sure if the BB charger was damaged or if it's just that the two chargers did not have similar ratings. But just thought i would throw that out there as there are many phones and devices that share a micro usb charge port now.

HTC 4G :: Switching From Blackberry To EVO

May 18, 2010

I was hoping to get some of your opinions regarding a decision I have to make. My Sprint upgrade has come and passed,and I am really hoping to get a new phone in the next few months.I currently have a Blackberry Curve 8330,and it's my first smartphone and it's been pretty wonderful, although I do notice it's slow sometimes.For my next phone,I was considering the EVO or the Blackberry Slider (9800) that's supposedly coming to Sprint in the Fall. The main problem I have is that I can't compare my experience with the BB to anything, so I can't really speak to how good it is, etc.Everything about the EVO sounds good, but I'm just worried what exactly I'll be missing leaving Blackberry.Excuse my ignorance, but I'm not even sure how email is handled on any other phone besides a Blackberry.I lurked on some BB forums and they all talk about how great the Blackberry "push" messaging system is, but would the EVO/android/Sense UI provide a similar experience?

Android :: Compare With Blackberry

Sep 26, 2010

So, I'm currently a BlackBerry (9700, for the record) user, seriously considering switching to an android device. I'm sure everyone here can account for the various ways an android phone is superior to a BlackBerry, and I'm pretty familiar with them. What's been holding me back though, are the minor productivity tweaks a BlackBerry provides that seemingly don't have a match on android devices. Am I wrong on these? Have others made the jump and found no difference? Specifically: Dedicated hotkeys of sorts -- I'm a pretty heavy business user, so I make ridiculously extensive use of my calendar/scheduler. No matter what I'm doing at the moment, I'm able to jump to my calendar with a single button press and see my entire week's worth of appointments. If I need to add something, I can schedule an appointment in under 5 seconds all the way through. To be honest, that's probably the only hotkey I use, but the ability to do this in an instant no matter what's in my way is rather important for me -- are there any equivalents on android phones? Through my research I've noticed a lack of hardware hotkeys. Is there any software solution that could at least compare?.....

Android :: Comparision With Blackberry

Nov 7, 2009

I am looking to hear from those who switched from Blackberry to Android. What are your comments, what are the things you miss most or you are completely happy with no regrets. I saw the e-mail client on Android, it is just like gmail, which is OK, but where does it store e-mails, Blackberry had a problem of not being able to store e-mails on external memory, therefore it took up space on device storage. But I loved its address book and the sync options. I know everything else is superior to blackberry but the most important thing for me is the e-mail and connectivity/sync. Otherwise I will wait for the newer WM phone that will be coming out on T-Mobile (HD2 I think) as I know WM has a very good e-mail client.

HTC EVO 4G :: Syncing Blackberry To Phone

Aug 24, 2010

I am writing this for my friend who has an EVO. He just replaced his Blackberry Tour with the EVO and wants to know how he can sync or transfer all of the blackberry stuff onto his new EVO. Stuff like music, calendar, photos, ringer, documents, etc. I already have him set up on google gmail so I am not sure if that make a difference. Any thoughts would be great. I have no experience with BB; I came from windows mobile.
