    Hello everyone,

    I carry my Z10 for work and also carry an iphone5 for personal use. It's because I have apps that can't be found on the BlackBerry. And more and more I keep seeing people with 2 devices - usually a BlackBerry and another device. Mostly iphones.

    So what do you carry to complement your BlackBerry? If you do, that is. Just curious. Apologies if this has been asked before.

    Jo

    Mine is an iPod touch for the apps that I don't have on my Q10. It's so thin that I don't mind having both of them in my pocket. I think its a good idea to have 2 devices on the go for backup purposes. Like when you drop accidentally the other device, you can still be connected. I also have a mobile wifi device (Infomark kwf-b3000) because it's cheaper here in South Korea (only around 10 USD for 10GB of data on LTE), and the battery of my Q10 lasts longer because it's only using wifi.

    Saw someone at an event the other day and he had a Z10 (my first encounter with another one) and an iphone (don't know the model). The BB was work (State Dept) and the iphone personal.

    I always have an iPhone and a BlackBerry.

    I always use my BlackBerry as my main phone because I think that it does what it can do better than my iPhone can, but the things it can do are highly limited. That's where my iPhone comes in.

    Back in the BBOS days, I always had an iPod touch in the other pocket mainly for media and apps. For a while I was also using the 5th gen touch as a camera (during my 9900 days with that horrible EDoF camera).

    Once I got the Z10 I stopped carrying the touch full time. The camera was decent, it was good enough for media, and the app situation (with a fairly heavy dose of Android APKs) was a lot better than on BBOS.

    Out of curiosity, what are some of the apps you use which can't be found on BB10?

    There's nothing I use personally that I can't have on my Z30, so for me I wouldn't want to carry 2 phones.

    I do have a PlayBook as well. Although it still works fine, I wouldn't mind replacing its aging catalog with an iPad mini 2. There are some games and maybe a few apps I'd enjoy having on a tablet to compliment my smartphone, just nothing worth carrying 2 phones for me.

    IMHO it has to do with some people wanting to have "more" than what they truly need on a daily basis. I have a Z30 as my main and regularly, only device.

    Sometimes I carry an old Motorola C168i which only works for calls and SMS, as it has a number for contact with regards to stuff I sell on the Web (and don't want to jeopardise my main number). I also keep my old Torch 9800 as a backup at home with a "duplicate" of contacts and notes, as on my Z30, and working with a foreign SIM.

    At times I swap SIMs between the Torch and C168i, mainly when on trips lasting more than 2 days. But regularly I only carry my Z30, as it has exactly what I require on a daily basis.

    I truly don't find the need of carrying two "big" devices and it sometimes becomes troublesome (where to store two phones on everyday clothing, in my case, a business suit). Perhaps I could justify having as your main device a "big one" and a cheap second device just for emergency calls/sms or basic internet.


    Loved the Q10 but now it's Z30 power time!!!

    I usually carry around two devices. My Q10 and either the Z30 or my 160GB ipod classic for when 1000 songs isn't enough! If I have a bag with me you can usually find my ipad mini in the mix too!

    Q10, Q5, Z30... Damn I love leaks too much!

    Same here. I've had a Q10 as my only smartphone for more than a year now, and I've never felt the need for another device.

    Carry two, a z10 for chats and emails, and a lenovo P770 for calls and play games since it has a large battery that can stand for a day plus with lots of phone calls and play games to kill time.

    It's probably just a choice of words thing, but do you really consider BB10 to be highly limited?

    It's all about perspective. My bro in law has no room for apps or games on his iPhone because its memory is almost completely full of photos and some music. I showed him File Manager on Z30 showing my 32GB sd card and he was just #MindBlown.

    I agree. I have my Z10 with me all the time and a real honest to goodness analog watch.

    The other 2 Z10s are either in my briefcase or in my back pocket. Lol!

    And when the Passport comes out, hopefully the Z10 and a Passport.

    And my watch. Lol!
