Could someone please define what a 'Power User' is.
Thanks

Thank you for taking the trouble in replying to my thread. I've had BB's since 2002, but never really got into them until now. I got time now I'm semi-retired. I will aspire too be a Power user(did my first OS load today!).
Thanks again

Well I really intereted in BB's, we had loads at my Company. And nowdays I've started getting into them, when I read you guys posts I think "they know their stuff". Well I've downloaded a OS. Tweaked it using John Clarks advice. And my cousin James who is Canadian E mailed me calling me a "Power user in the making".
So I take my Hat off to those guys here!

I hadn't thought about it, but my definition of a power user would be slightly different, and wouldn't so much describe the hobbiest or enthusiast who experiements and tweeks, but the person who uses the device a lot, and for a lot of purposes and tasks, sort of like what juwaack says, but more to describe the person who relies on the device for a lot of things and is more efficient, more productive, and more powerful because of it.

Well the BB is I always thought a Business tool. I still use mine for Emails/texts appointments/wake me up. And use it a lot allday mainly news, reading forums like this. When I was working fulltime I used them 24/7.
But just never knew how they worked, that's what I come on BBF for.
Thanks for replying

Hey, I'll take it! I'm sure there's a "that's what she said" reference in there somewhere, but nah, I'll let this one pass. Sort of.

Well since I started this Thread, I've loaded OS betas and Hybrids etc. Took out cods, unlocked it. Changed themes. And as Alharkness advised backed up everyweek including third party apps!

I think you've gone straight past power user to ubergeek...not that there's anything wrong with that.

I'm surprised this thread count is so low. I would think itxxx8217;s good for at least a couple of hundred considering how many BB geeks there are.
