    Starting Dec 1, we are allowed to void any 3 yr contracts after a year or 2 I think, here in Canada.

    I'm happy with my Droid smartphone. I could get a new one now, but no interest in a new 2 year agreement since I may just switch to a home phone being that it is much cheaper on a monthly basis than a cell phone.

    RJK - They do make some great phones. I don't need the latest and greatest though. If I can get one that has the basic, and a few fancier features that's fine with me. My wife has the same phone, so bbm is a free feature - like that part, plus with opposite work shifts, it easy to keep in touch.

    That bad part is one day the battery lasts all day, no problem, the next it shows a full charge and then 10 minutes later is dead.

    I would get one again, but of course, not the latest one - I can't justify spending $300 (I have not idea what the pricing structure is) and still be on a 3 yr contract, if I can get the same contract and get an older model for $20 or even free.

    LOL, sorry you have to deal stupid phone! I have no use for a blackberry phone myself, so I'll never bother with them

    I saw that..... gotta love free stuff. But they won't be convertible to Kobo.

    I will eventually grab them though somehow probably.

    Thanks for the heads up! I was able to add a couple that I did not already have.

    I have Calibre - it's a great little program, but does not, of course, convert everything.

    You can download Kindle for your PC or phone and read it there. I doubt you could legally convert it. It most likely has DRM protection. There are ways to strip the DRM (Google it), but no legal way.

    If it doesn't have DRM, for whatever reason, you can use calibre to change the format. http://calibre-ebook.com/download
