    I've tried several different cell phones, trying to find the "right one" for me.
    Being able to make a call without having to "jump through hoops" is important to me.
    Battery life is equally important.
    The Blackberry gives you great battery life and is easy to use and personalize.
    I love my Blackberry.
    I am checking out the curve.

    Well, here I am, going on 12 hours of ownership... and already I've downloaded 5-6 apps, and am currently getting ringtones and alert sounds... Methinks the addiction is beginning :-D

    my coworkers think I'm addicted... one of the guys I work with was switching calling plans and getting a new phone.. he asked my opinion and I told him most definately get the Pearl... He got it and I send him daily updates to the phone or cool things I think he would like on his phone whether he wants them or not... I also got my dad using the Pearl as well... We went to his house for Thanksgiving and I wasn't in the house 5mins when he handed me his phone and told me to 'set him up' with all the cool features I had on mine!

    if you know you're going somewhere that you absolutely cannot be distracted by your bberry, leave it in the car or at home! i know it's painful but you'll get through it and you'll have something to look fwd to once you're done with whatever (obviously boring) thing you're doing! I swear there should be a 12 step program for this LOL..

    best way to avoid blackberry addiction, is to forget your phone at home! best medicine ever, it's like going cold turkey. can't stop thinking about it...

    Control? I'm half addicted just learning everything I'm going to be able to do with my Curve. I'm already trying figure out how to constantly keep it on my person rather than let it out of sight by putting it in a purse.

    I'm not addicted yet as I just got it, but I'm sure I will be once I master its capabilities...

    I don't THINK I am addicted, but I do kind of freak out if I see that low battery LED flashing and I am not near a charger.

    I just got my first BB 2 weeks ago and hence I am still in the phase of denial. I basically live with the thing... so you could call it an addiction. I guess.

    It's not addiction. I can put my BB down any time I want. I just never want to do it.
