Also, these execs think that the blackberries can never fault and think its your fault that they do. They are like "I'm standing on top of a 14,000 foot mountain in chile and I can't check my email please fix that. .... Morons


I couldn't have said it better... it's as if we do the same thing acs. The blackberries are handed out to upper level execs like candy who don't understand the basic function of a "scroll wheel." The absolute worst, like yesterday, was when I had to set up a blackberry for a user 1000 miles away.

And yes, the blackberries sometimes suck... these guys get upset when they can't get an email while in a business meeting under the earth's crust. I don't know what they're doing down there, but they certainly aren't going to get their email.

Yea the best is how you have to know what type of blackberry and what service provider they have in order to set it up.

"So what model blackberry is it"

"Uh I don't know its black and pretty small"

"Who's your service provider?"

"Um it says Rim Handheld"

"No but is it ATT or Cingular or Verizon?"

"Hmm I don't know let me call my secretary. Can you just install them and I'll tell you that later?"

"No I need it to install"

"Well thats stupid, Why do we have to do that?"

"I don't know I am not the inventor of blackberries!"

Dude, you should try setting up a blackberry for a user in Europe using Vodafone service and all of their settings in Italian.

Yeah, i did that. Not fun.

Although, I discovered that the Italian word for "applications" is "applicaziano."

Awesome.

Actually the Italian guy already had the Blackberry, I was just doing support while he was here. I cleverly navigated the blackberry settings to change it to English, but it was still a pain.

The vodofone incompatability here in the US isn't very easy to deal with either.

Vodofone?

I know, it sucks. It's the wireless provider for Europe. No Cingular or Verizon over there, just Vodofone!

Everything has a creepy pinkish hue to it too.
