Long story but Verizon sucks in AK. Stuck with ATT now and went with BlackBerry since it was the only full keyboard option.

How can I get my music from my Droid 4 onto my new Blackberry?

Easy

Return the Blackberry and get a real phone. Its not 2005 anymore

Put it on an SD card?

The q10 is a pretty powerful phone....

You bought a BlackBerry? Voluntarily?

Ugh, new phone is already defective. Camera is just a black screen.

If you had an iPhone and iTunes I could help you.

My God, what did you expect. There's a reason Blackberry is no longer a competitor. If it wasn't for the .gov using so many of them, Blackberry wouldn't be in business.

By the way, my iPhone 5 has a full keyboard

Q10 user here.

I like it, and better than the iPhone. The communication/email/messaging hub is better, the physical keyboard kicks ass for doing real work on the phone, and RIMM was not on the list of folks the NSA was getting a direct feed off of at last check.

There's a guy at work who loves BlackBerry and is in deep denial about how screwed they are. He apparently invests heavily in it, because if the stock moves 3% he lets me know that "It's not too late to buy!"

Their earnings on 6/28 was a loss and the stock tanked 27% in a day

Seriously, a blackberry?
Link Posted: 7/7/2013 10:36:23 PM EST
I'm hoping AT&T will let me return it and exchange for a Galaxy S4 Active. I will dearly miss a real physical keyboard but yeah, the blackberry just isn't going to cut it.

Sounds like a pretty powerful phone.

If you can do without the physical keyboard, the S4A is a sweet phone. I tried one. But I send 30 to 40 emails a day when I'm between meetings and office, and I just depend on the physical keyboard too much.

If you're gonna be typing a lot maybe get a blutooth keyboard?

I just replaced my 8900 Curve with the S4 Active. I'll miss the keypad, but the Q10 just didn't feel right at all.

The Active is a nice little device for what it is. Only issue I'm having thus far is logging in to the ARF.com mobile site, can't get the log-in fields to open up.

You're not blocking the lens are you?

I stayed with BB way too long because of the keyboard, but finally went to an iphone about a year ago.
Got used to the touchscreen real quick.

I have the Z10. So far I like it, just over a month. The blackberry hub is nice, I just have to be in range of my computer network and everything is automatically backed up. Pics, docs, and music.

This. Some of us deliberately use Blackberries.

And last I checked, neither Apple nor Google have their claws sunk into spying on my activities on my Blackberry (and then using it for whatever purposes they wish, including handing it over to the .gov).
Link Posted: 7/8/2013 3:47:18 AM EST
The new BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 are not the BlackBerrys everyone is used to that used to suck. It runs an entirely new operating system, and has specs that surpass the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S3.

And last I checked, BlackBerry isn't giving your info to the .gov.

@OP If there's a way to have the music files stored on your computer, put them all in a folder and tell BlackBerry Link to copy over that folder. Or go ask at crackberry.com , it's the ar15.com of phones.

Ignore the haters. I've used BlackBerrys for a long time, and for efficient messaging they can't be beat. If you really want to get people riled up, tell them that the BlackBerry 10 OS can run any android app. 2.3 now, but with the next update that's in the works, it includes 4.2.2

Well I caved and paid the 35 restocking fee and went with the Galaxy S4 Active. Sure with I had a keyboard but other than that I really like it.

Imo the pinnical of phone design was the blackberry tour with the trackball.

Still have a droid 4 through verizon with a real keyboard. Im planning to use my unlimited data plan and hotspot my new att phone. Att has crazy priced data packages.

My GF had 3 Tour's in less than 3 months, the trackball kept failing. Like me before her, she gave up on BB and went with Android.

Go to Google Play Music
Download your music library onto your PC. Not individual songs, but your whole library using Music Manager!

I hope you had a better reason to change than Arfcom's opinion...

How do you like your Galaxy?

The old school BlackBerries were not great phones. The Q10 and Z10 are on par with any other modern smartphone.

It's unfortunate that BlackBerry hasn't fixed their image in the eye of the public.

The pre-track ball ones were awesome. I remember my 7250 and 7520 were awesome, and still the fastest I've ever been able to type on before Swype came out for Android.
