    this might be a weird question but i have been wondering what to say to people i dnt know who has blackberries.do u say to them "oh i have a blackberry too" or do u just shut up? this might be a bit silly but its cos not many people use blackberries here in london so wen i see one i feel like having a chat with them but dnt want to show off at the same time.

    what do u say?

    Start by asking them what model they are using. That is what I always do.

    i do that as well. i once sat next to a guy with an iphone. i kept lookin at soo much so he kept showing it off more. when i got off the tube(tram) i wave my bb to his face and his facial expression was just funny. he was just surprise to a young girl with a bb. ha that will teach him!! lol

    Since I'm continually on the lookout for new/cool applications, I'm always curious about what people have installed on their Berry. I usually won't say anything b/c I don't want to appear rude, but when I do I'm oftentimes disappointed (not that I'm a crackberry genius or anything) because they either have nothing beyond the preinstalled stuff or know little more than the basics like how to change their wallpaper, send an email or text message. Some have never even been to the blackberry.com website. I'm always amazed by that one!

    Good thing there are sites like CB out there so I can learn about the latest and greatest apps...

    I'm in London too, I don't actually are that many young people with blackberrys normally. Old guys over 40 struggling to use them.

    i was in marks and sparks for lunch recently and the guy in the Q ahead of my pulled out his BB.

    I'd just got mine so said"i see another crackberry user"

    he was happy to chat and admit that these things are addictive in that you are constantly available

    Since I'm with the younger group (24) I don't say much to people since most people I see with them are older business crowd. But I did pull it out in an interview and explained the BB maps app and showed the interviewer how and what it was. He had a pearl and I showed him on his lol.......... And I didn't even get the job

    I have to admit, I carry mine in my hand often - more to show it off then anything. And I have had several people coment on the custom skin I have on it. The other day one of my daughters saw another women with her Berry and walked over and said " Your Berry would look really cool with a skin on it." Was a very proud moment for me!

    Although I do look at what phones people have, I never start a convo in reference to it. They usually start one with me though.

    Friend of mine got a pearl before I got my curve. I really wasn't big on the whole bb thing when I saw it I was just like oh cool nice phone. I knew about the business stigma they carried with them so I felt that carring one of these puppies would put me in the right frame of mind, and it did. Its amazing I've never had this much of an emotional tie to my cell phone but I could blame that on motorola and lg for making such generic devices (and verizon for allowing no customization at all except for rediculiou fees).

    I very rarely don't have my curve glued to my hand so its usually others inquiring about my berry.

    If i see someone with their berry that i want to talk to i just wipe out my berry, and if its a real cutie i'll say " Excuse me, i've been trying to figure out how to add someone to my bb messenger, Can you show me?". Then i give them my "flirty eyes" lol. It works everytime, men are so easy

    It's like one of those things you notice once you get one and all the sudden you are like "I just got a new blackberry" and someone will respond with "I got one".

    I first made my blackberry upgrade announcement in Ventrilo to my Warcraft guild... Pin, Pin, Pin, Pin... LOL an easy way to add some contacts...
