    Interesting story... my dog got to my BB and chew it the eff' up. It still worked but some buttons were dead. I took all of 5 minutes to think about should I get a new one or just work with what I have. Sure enough, I went and got a new one

    I enjoyed the two days of peace when my BlackBerry suffered an outtage. Then again, since it's for work, maybe I have ill feelings towards it on occasion.

    Ouch, I hope this doesn't happen any time soon! I'd probably bite the bullet and buy a replacement, but I'm sure I (and my wife for that matter) wouldn't be happy about it.

    Most all of what I need is backed up on the BES...a nice benefit.

    I haven't experienced the outages but if I lost my BB or it was stolen, I would be lost. I would need to get it replaced.

    what would i do if my blackberry was lost or stolen?! go ape shyte!!! ha!! seriously though i can't imagine losing it that's why i keep it in my pocket at all times.. even in pajamas i'll walk from room to room with it so i always know where it is! if someone stole it, well lets just say if i found out who took it, it wouldn't be good for that person

    I guard mine with my life... If it broke I don't know what I'd do! Especially considering AT&T told me I couldn't get insurance for it!!!

    the horrors! I did dowload find my berry. That would help, i think, if i misplaced it. If i seriously lost it or broke it I'd really have a problem. I'd replace it immeditely.

    I am bad about the back up thing. If I lost mine I would freak out and probably tear everything up until I found it.

    If I lost my Blackberry, I would have to go back to my MDA until the insurance replaced my Pearl. It would be agonizing!

    As a Systems Administrator for a mid-size company, back-ups are a regular part of my job. So I have to make sure I do so in my personal life too, or boy would that be some egg on my face. :-D

    As for what I would do... Since I keep a daily backup, I'd be safe with the insurance claim... but you can bet I'd be tracking that person down on my own if it was ever stolen.

    I never worry about losing my Blackberry or having it crash because I backup often.

    I would die bc I never back anything up (don't know how) and I couldn't get insurance on it through ATT. It would just be a bad bad deal!

    If my BB was lost or stolen.. I would most certainly replace it! I have the Pearl now but might consider the Curve...

    I was affected by the BB outages and every 5mins or so I was checking the phone to see if I was back in biz and of course on the forums checking the latest updates! my co-workers think I'm insane
