i got my bb a week ago, and that was b/c i lost a samsung SYNC that i hizated....if i lost this phone, i htink i would probably have to kill myself b/c i have no more updates and even gophones are like 100!!
I almost cried. Running a conference and not having my email updates or access to venue websites, I ran around from internet cafe to internet cafe to get the access I needed. Not quite secure but sufficed.
I had a BB for 2 years but then I switched back to a "normal" phone. So I didn't experience the problems in 2007. But now I'm back and I would lose my mind if mine ever broke or there was another outage.
Other than go stir crazy for the few days while awaiting a replacement, I don't know if there would be much I could do if my BB became lost/stolen/broken. I do have insurance on the device. Too new a user to have suffered the outages earlier this year.
I killed my Pearl on Monday and had to rush out and buy a new Curve! My old Blackberry from 2001-2003 no problem to backup just email.
The first software for backup I had gotten for my pearl, crashed it so i have not backed up nervous ver since.
