    I don't think I'm addicted...however whenever it is not around I feel sad and depressed, I am only happy with my blackberry on my side or in my hand or close to me...when its not close I feel bad and try to find something else to make me feel good again...some other gateway...

    but I don't think I am addicted.

    I can now use my BB as an alarm clock. The new message vibration wakes me every time.

    Bit like asking "are you addicted to air" or "are you addicted to food", or maybe more like "are you addicted to fresh air" or "are you addicted to wearing clothes" - I could theoretically live without, but it would seem somewhat silly to do so, and I don't see the point.

    Write out your blackberry rules and keep them in front of you, your family and your co-workers. Create penalties on yourself (that others get to enforce) when you violate your rules!!

    Definately like learning more and more about its endless potential and things you can add to it. If that is addicted then yes haha.

    I've actually been told I'm addicted. I then tried a different phone and that lasted about two days. I felt like one of those Cavemen from the Geicko Commercials, way to stone age.

    Theres no controlling the addiction! I quit smoking cold turkey 4 years ago and haven't took 1 drag off of a smoke since. The Berry I can't put down. To control the Berry is to not even get one but wheres the fun in that!

    One evening, my wife told me how silly it was that I was spending so much time on the BB. I politely smiled, handed her the phone, and told her to check out this cool game called Brick Breaker.

    She took the Pearl in hand and started playing. Every few minutes there was a curse under her breathe(my wife despises cursing), an hour later she handed back the BB and stormed off to bed.

    I never laughed so hard (inside) in my life.

    I just got my bb two days ago. I am getting used to it and learning more. I want to get a memory card for it, but do not know if I really need it or not.

    The only thing that works for me is to put it in a room that is out of hearing range at the end of the day.

    Tip: Think of something you love more and what would happen if you lost that because of your crackberry.

    Nah . . . that won't work with this lot. :-)

    It's unavoidable...

    All you can do is mask it from your family and friends with excessive alcohol use.

    Certainly Blackberries can be addictive but you gotta say 'when'!! I'm not buying a holster or a beltclip!! I do plan to integrate scheduling into my life with my Blackberry... birthday reminders, haircut appointments etc., but that's about be organized and not being addicted... I'm sure of it!!

    For me, the addition comes in the form of needing to switch to a new model every 8, 6, now three months. I think I'm going to start to outpace RIM

    The device is an enabler, but the addition is to the information it provides.
