The day I bought my BB, my friend needed a new phone as well. I knew I was heading towards the BB anyway, but when she saw me actually purchasing mine (she decided to come with), she decided she needed one too!
So, I influenced someone before my signature was on the dotted line!
Well my husband influenced me first. He hot a curve and bought me a pearl last valentines day. Lol then guess what? Just last week we were able to convince my dad in law to get him a BB! He likes it a lot...next step is his mom. Lol

So I've had my BB (curve 8310) for week or so now and I first sold to a dude that I work with who completly had his heart set on an I phone I mean this guy had like 3 different magazines for the iphone he had been the store demoing it for hours and that is the way he was going to go the day after introducing him to my new significant other (my BB) he went out and bought one the next day.
The next one is my best friend he is buying one next week but I basically did him a favor by turning him on to it he was going to get a new prehistoric pos but I think he is going to go for a perrl instead
The next two are my partner at work and him and his wife seriously want the curve.
Then you know everyone that I talk to about my phone I make major sales pitches to just because it is so much fun to tell people how cool my phone is
I brought along about 4 people so far but none will make me happier than my ol man lol. My dad is actually gonna get the Pearl 2 (booo) but hey, at least is a blackberry. He loves my Curve but says its like "that little fat ipod" and plus he doesn't text too heavily.
So far I've gotten two of my co-worker/friends to switch over from standard (sub-standard) cells to the Curve because they saw how much easier my life became after I myself switched over from the Sidekick.
Another co-worker/friend wants to upgrade to the Curve from her Pearl after seeing how easy typing is on my beauty. My husband will probably upgrade to one as soon as he qualifies. Might have another co-worker switching over soon too. He seems to eye all our BB's when he's at work and likes the idea of email on his phone.
