My BlackBerry Z30

My hubby got me a new phone so I have access to Instagram. For the past few months I had been using his blackberry phone for my instagram posts. My old phone could not access instagram because it wasn't a smart phone. In fact, I wasn't planning to get a smart phone if wasn't for my blogging. Instagram is one great tool in promoting my blog posts. The app that works like instagram on blackberry is called iGrann. I can post photo at the same time it gets posted to my facebook and twitter. I have access to Skype too but I have to download it first. 




My phone came with a USB port charger. Hubby bought a 32 Gb microSD card for my phone so I'll have more space for pictures and videos. He also got me an otter box, for additional protection just in case I drop my phone on the floor it won't break. It also protects it from scratch. The otter box came with a clip so I can clip my phone on my belt but I don't like carrying my phone that way. Since I am home most of the time, I can use my home internet connection and not burn so much of our data plan. Once I leave my home, my phone then connects to my data.




So far I like it, it looks and feels heavier than my old one. I'm still trying to get a hang of it by exploring how it works. Now I can do my instagram anytime and could help bring more traffic to my blog. I am not so happy with iGrann though, there's no way for me to upload a video. Unless there is an app I can side load to it and make uploading video works.  


What smart phone are you using for your instagram? Does it have a different app you can use that works just like instagram? Can you upload videos or picture collage? I can't, but I am hoping they will come up with an upgrade with these features.

  17. I wish I would have bought one of those otter boxes for my son. It would have saved his iPhone from a smashed screen!

  28. Blackberry makes good phones and has a great system. However they still need to catch up bit with the latest social media tools. Good that they have instagram now.
