Sometimes I long for the BlackBerry days

Do you remember the good old days when you could: 

1. Write a text message to a friend and hit ‘send’, safe in the knowledge that it would be transmitted without any further action? If your BlackBerry didn’t have signal at that precise moment, the message would be queued and then sent when signal was reestablished. 

2. Plough through your emails with a single key press d, d, d, d, d, d, d, (to delete, for example) or a favourite of mine (thanks to the now defunct Gmail for BlackBerry app: e,e,e,e,e,e,e,e,e to archive) 

3. File your email with a simple ‘i’ and ‘d’ and a tap. (Where ‘i’ was for the ‘file this message’ action and ‘d’ was for the ‘done’ folder in my case)

4. Reply to an email on the train without any connection error messages

5. Read an email on the train without connection error messages

6. Queue up a load of outbound emails which would be automatically sent (like SMS messages) when signal reestablished, without generating all sorts of complaining prompts 

Oh those were the days.
