byebye blackberry

So my Blackberry Curve died this weekend in NY... even though it's been under a year, AT&T's warranty won't cover it because they said I damaged the "charging port" myself. Yeesh. So apparetly my options are 1) pay $400 to upgrade to a new AT&T blackberry, 2) pay $300 to get a new AT&T phone of the same model, 3) pay $190 to RIM for an exchange of a refurbished phone, or 4) pay $230 to RIM for repair. Ugh.

I'm going with option 5 instead and asking if anyone has an old (yet functional) blackberry that they'd like to send or sell me. Bonus points if the phone used to have AT&T as the carrier (cuz then we don't have to get the carrier to "unlock" the phone). You generosity is appreciated!

And yes, I understand this is the most blatantly off-topic post I've written ;)

I've been reading through your posts and I was wondering if there was a way you could email me (or give me your contact information).

I'm in the exact boat you were in (to give you an example, I forwarded my coworkers your "I H8te My Job" because it's SO true!)

Would love to get your feedback before you leave DC!

Hi Grace,
Sure- I'd be more than happy to get in touch with you. I'm out of the country from this afternoon to June 7 (western europe) but let's do it when you get back. I can't give you my email cuz it'll completely reveal my identity but if you post your email addy on June 7 to my blog's comments, i should almost definitely receive it within 12 hours and I can promise to delete your comment immediately. Unless you have a better idea? I'm all ears. I don't really want to create a fake email account since this blog is almost retired.

RIP Blackberry Curve. I'm sure you will be missed...

I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I enjoy your blog, and wish you the best of luck with your MBA experience. I was in your shoes a few years ago, and can tell you that the Stanford GSB was two of the best years of my life (the application process, not so much, but that’s another story…)

Anyway, I know how stressful the application process can be, and since a lot of your readers are in the process of applying to business school, I thought I might be able to help you provide a valuable resource to your loyal readers.

I’d like to send you a copy of my complete applications for 5 top MBA programs (for free, seriously). Then, if you think your readers might like it as well, I’ll provide a link you can post on your blog so your readers can grab their copy as well.

If you're interested, drop me an email at, and I'll have a preview copy of my application materials emailed to you ASAP, so you can check it out and make sure it's something you'd feel comfortable giving away to your readers.

Hi Tieny

I see this blog is retired but I am hoping you might still get this.

I am 29 now but I will be handing in my MBA apps when I am 30 and would be beginning classes when I am 31.

Other wise I have a pretty good profile. I am wondering if you could give me your honest opinion or observations of older students in the top MBA schools?

Is there anyone over 30 at Columbia? If so are there any trending characteristics among them?

Ie - HBS seems to admit a few older students but they are usually from the military or from very atypical backgrounds.

Any info would be helpful! Tx
