Since I've only had my lovely little beast for a couple of weeks, I have yet to worry about addiction. I do, however, find myself remembering to take it with me when I didn't bother to in the past with a simple cell phone.
I heard on the radio this morning that someone had used their Blackberry to download media to their computer. Their bill for 6 weeks was $85000 dollars. The customer claims it is not fair because he had an unlimited download contract and because they should have contacted him with his bill growing so high. The carrier showed that in his contract it states that the unlimited use for the internet browsing is to the phone directly and it also stated that this does not apply to downloading to your computer. The carrier said they would drop the bill down to $5000. The customer still wants to fight it.
I went out of the country and even though my bb would not work, I took it with me anyway and caught myself checking for new messages every so often. I used to think that I could stop using anytime but have since given up on such a silly idea.

I now get the phantom vibrations when I know my phone isn't on me. I have to check Viigo often. I check messages again and again...wondering why I don't have a new one in less than 10 minutes. I constantly think of ways to tweak a theme. Use it daily for work.
Is it addiction when ur spouse refers to it as the other woman?
Course if i was truly addicted i would be making my posts from it.
I can quit anytime, anywhere, I'm not addicted. Once the battery
goes dead I only check it every 7 minutes to see if the Radio came
My uncle and I were walking on Columbus Avenue in NYC one Sunday morning. Every five minutes, almost literally, he would get an email, and stop in his tracks to reply to it. It's almost like he was instant messaging, just not as AIM-ish.
