I do too much with my blackberry, so I back up weekly. If I loose my BB I would go nuts waiting for the replacement to come in. I love my BB so much I opted to get the insurance from T mobile, its the only peace of mind that I have, so I would just pay the deductible and I get another BB on its way.
I just got my BB and I can't imagine a moment without it. I felt to bad for BB users when those outages occured, I just knew it must be something terrible. I can empathize but please don't ask me to join.
If my BB were broken or list, I would RUN not WALK to the nearest Sprint store and get another one!! When I couldn't get my BB service to work, I checked first with my big monster (PC) and periodically checked my BB until it was back up.
Seeing as how managed to get my BB to lock up twice in 2days, and get that stupid calendar bug where an event won't go away, I had to back up twice already so I could do a wipe. I'm addicted to features other than mail currently, so I'm not sure how it'll affect me in the future.
I just got my BB, so I haven't been affected by any service blackouts. As long as I can still get to my Address Book and clanedar, though, I'll be OK ... there ARE still land lines available for thos important calls.
I sync my BB almost every day, but haven't backed it up yet. Is there a difference?
I started backing up my BB after I had to wipe it the first time and I had a hard time getting my contacts back, since the DM thought I had deleted them and deleted them out of Outlook. Luckily I found a backup of my datafile that was recent enough not to lack any adresses.
Now I backup about every week, since there's not too much coming/going onto my BB and I enabled that checkbox to ask before it deletes anything
If it was stolen....well I'd hope the person on the other site would give it back to me...
