    I wish I had a tip to control my addiction, but so far I don't. Although I am writing this on my PC, so maybe I'm not a total addict yet :P

    There really is a reason that we refer to them as crackberries! Man I just thought that it was a nice phone with GPS when I was looking at it at the store. Now it's my secret lover! (Shhhhhhhhh!)

    As far as adicted, I think most of us are in the same boat. We love our deviced for various reasons, and quite honestly I would mind having a bath tub full of berrys to lay in and browse internet, email, sms or whatever. Honestly... Once you go blackberry you never go back!

    Basically my BB is the first device that I have had that is not just a regular phone. I am so addicted that I can hardly even put it down at all. Even on the ride home I cant put it down. I am holding it even if I am not looking at it hoping for that traffic light to stop me.... you get that! I am hoping for traffic lights! Beign able to get email, news, play games, etc.... this is the greatest device! If only it had a camera..... guess I need to upgrade cause I know the newer BB's do!

    I think the only way to avoid a crackberry addiction is to not own one... then again I don't have on yet and I am already addicted!

    I have this habit at work of checking it at least 20 times an hour, I'm constantly moving around and cant always notice if it vibrates.

    I really havent discovered how to avoid checking it so much. Sometimes when I dont see the light on it I call from another phone just to make sure its still working...

    Not sure I would use the word "addicted"...but I catch myself checking it a zillion times a day, wiping off the screen, and just playing with it. So, I guess I am maybe more than a "recreational user"...huh?

    The best tip I every recieved was from my wife. One day while driving, she asked if she could use my phone for a second. Being the nice guy that I am, i finished up my conversation and an email at the same time (that's multitasking), and handed it to her. She started to dial a number, then chucked it out the window. Her tip was that if I wanted to stay married, I'd better lose the Crackberry Addiction. Well, it worked, slightly. Now, I just know how to hide it!

    I'm getting close. The games I have downloaded on it keep me busy during slow times during finals week.

    I came to the BB side after getting sick of the sidekick and dash, and now that i have my curve, i take it everywhere. And i mean everywhere.
    The only thing i can think of to stop my addiction, well... Nothing!

    Yes, hardcore addiction. But with all that info right there, how can someone not become dependent?
