So funny that you posted something about this. My best friend never used to look through my phone or anything and now everytime we are together she grabs my blackberry and reads my emails and txt msgs! I'm always like oh what are you doing and she admits to reading everything I say to all my friends. Then after she reads everything she can, she says she doesnt know how to use it but thinks it is kind of cool hands it back to me and then grabs it again 30 mins later.
Not only a blackberry invasion, but a privacy invasion too. It really bugs the crap out of me but I can never be mean so I dont know how to say STOP GOING THROUGH MY STUFF and give me back my baby!
Tell them its personal like underwear and toothbrushes, some things you just dont share.
Now i will give them a great sales pitch on how they should get their own.
No one plays w/ my phone not even my kids. Call me selfish but I think that everyone is entitled to have something all their own that no one else should touch.
Even simpler, ask to see their POS phone at the same time, and scroll through it and make a couple of calls to another friend on their phone. Make some degrading comments about how bad their phone is, etc., hard to use, bad volume, etc.
They will ask for it back really quick, and it probably won't happen again.
Hmm. This gets me thinking (or some might think NOT thinking) but since I'm new to the 8830, is there a way to password protect some aspects of the device. That is allow someone to use the "CELL PHONE" but not go delving into other areas. I guess one could hide icons but if the borrower knows about that.....
