    When there was the outage a while back I had just gotten my BB so I didn't know abt outages etc so I kept refreshing the pages and doing battery pulls etc. I thought my BB was busted.

    With all the loading and reloading of apps that I do, testing new things out for reviews and such I usually back it up once a week, but lately I find myself doing it more often due to certain things that are on there, if I lost some of that stuff they'd have top lock me up in mental hospital cause I'd go nuts, I was lucky enough for bypass the RIM outage this time but if another happens I won't be so lucky, but who knows, maybe I wouldn't be that bad off, it be kinda like a break for me, give me some time to not worry about some things, but if it got broke that would be another story thats why I was prev looking into buying an Otter Box from the CB Shop.

    Didn't have the BB outage, didn't even know about it.
    I would die a slow and agonizing death! I need my black berry to survive!

    I'd go and buy a new one right away... that's one way to get a new curve.

    I would panic at first, because I keep a lot of helpful info on there. Not necessarily stuff that would hurt me of someone else got it, but I definitely rely on my BlackBerry as an more reliable extension of my brain.

    The panic would begin to subside as soon as I realized that I had an excuse to upgrade to a new model Curve...

    Being a PDA veteran, I religiously backup everyday, so I would hurry to the store and buy another one and do a restore on it. I always use a password protect so it will wipe my info if someone finds it.

    I backup at least once a week, wouldn't loose too much. That is one thing I do miss from my windows mobile device. An onboard backup utility that ran at 3am every night/morning.

    With my situation I could not probably afford to replace my berry right away, so I would have to revert back to a dumbphone. EEEWWWWW what a revolting thought.
