Why RIM isn’t dead to me: I’m getting far too much done, faster, with my Bold!

I recognise that RIM is having a challenging time at the moment. Quite a few people have been prodding me in recent weeks, asking why I am “still loyal”. One chap I met recently for coffee reckoned that I “love” RIM too much and “can’t see the wood for the trees.” No. I can see […]

Ah, welcome back BlackBerry Bold!

I’ve had my BlackBerry Bold relaxing for the last few days whilst I have been traveling from place to place. I’m doing my best to avoid rewarding my operator(s) for offering really poor data roaming rates by refusing, where possible, to use them. I’ve therefore managed to avoid using the Bold for a few days […]

I Lost My Phone In London!

I usually carry a minimum of two handsets: A BlackBerry Bold and an iPhone 4. Between them, I have everything I generally need to run my businesses wherever I am. When I’m on the train, I’ll often sit and use the iPhone and have the Bold in reserve — often sitting on my leg, or […]

My business critical Bold 9700 isn’t: JVM Error 545

This evening at about 430pm my business critical top of the range BlackBerry Bold 9700 went blank except for an annoying small and inexplicable, unhelpful message: JVM Error 545. Joy. It’s rendered the device absolutely useless. I saw it and took out the battery immediately smiling with an embarrassed look in case anyone in Starbucks […]
