again......I am a Sprint employee and here in Las Vegas EVERYONE who has a smartphone seems to be either a doctor or a realtor. I swear we must have 15,000 realtors in this town. I have no idea how these people manage to mangle their phones sometimes on a daily basis and then expect us to fix it on the drop of a hat, simply because they are losing thousands of dollars every minute. C'mon get over it......it is a phone and if you are making THAT much money then you best be for buying a backup for when you screw up or original one.
I am using two phones and yes they are both blackberrys. I got one for business and became so addicted I got a second for my personal calls. I would be useless without them. My whole life is relying on them. Business and personal life.
I had to replace my 8830 and was without it for one day.. I then begun to understand how bad it was.. I keep feeling my hip looking for the holster, feeling vibes, thinking "It must be quiet I am not getting an emails" I was given a loaner phone and got a text message which took me 12 mins to type a single sentence using the phone keyboard.. Just sad.
My story is short. Ill first start off by confessing I'm a blackberry addict. I use my Blackberry everywhere (besides places next to water.....gotta keep it safe). You'll catch me emailing, SMS, IMing, using the phone, surfing the web, playing media and etc at anytime of the day. Its a horrible addiction I must say. I'm always thinking I'm seeing my Led blinking Red (meaning something new came in whether SMS, email, or phone) or feeling phantom vibrations when I'm out.
I could'nt see leaving my BB home for a day while I was out. But thats the only way I could calm down my BB addiction. lol.
I took my blackberry on my honeymoon. bad idea.
That was when I had a separate phone, too. Now that I upgraded to the Curve and use it as my phone also, my usual technique for minimizing issues (giving it to my wife to hide) no longer is practical. Good luck with that, all.
I'm addicted to cell phones but I'm addicted and obsessed to my CrackBerry. If someone tried to steal it from me, I might actually kill them.
And no, I don't need rehab. I know I have a problem and I'm okay with it.
When my old unit died on me, I had to go an entire weekend without the Blackberry waiting for it's replacement. I was so information deprived, I ended up logging in to the corporate network from home just to get my daily fix of data!
When I come home from work I put my BB on the charger and either go out to dinner or take a walk around the city. It's almost mischevous how I feel knowing no one can get in touch with you for that time. We are always connected!! It feels good to unplug for an hour.
I have my first BB (after being a Palm PDA devotee for 8 years) and after the first two days and I had quickly adjusted to checking my email!!! Then I accidentally blocked my email and did not how. I had withdrawals on that third day, while I searched for a solution from 3 different sources, with the last source (late in the day, I might add!) finally getting my email back up and working!!! Aaaarrrggghhh!
