    So I recently got my first BB when Verizon launched the Curve. I had been waiting essentially for months as my contract had been renewed and I had some discounts waiting.

    I got my Blackberry last Sunday, the day before they were supposed to hit stores (though apparently not as I got mine from a store).

    A friend of mine saw I had added the Facebook app in her feed and questioned me and then demanded to see my Berry the next day.

    She was up for a new phone but didn't want a smartphone even after seeing my Berry. But then this Saturday she got to play with it again and the next day she was texting me from her brand new Berry!

    So I was wondering - is this typical of those of you who have sway people? Do they just need to look at it and play a bit to be convinced or did I get lucky?

    (It's great having a friend with a BB. We can have blinking indicators together LOL.)

    I've enticed 5 of my friends to get blackberrys... They watch you use them and then a few days later they have their own! It's amazing how many people I see around throughout the day that have blackberrys, when I got mine a year ago, it was hardley ever you saw them around here.

    Yeah. Facebook has an application. It's so addictive. I'm blinking right now with something from it.

    Going back to the being annoyed thing, I got the same thing! BB has a reputation of being addictive (and it is), so immediately my friend asked if I was going to be on it all the time and ignore people! A week later she joined the club!
