    If my was lost, stolen, or damaged, I would be headed to the nearest Cingular/AT&T or I would be checking out ebay to replace mine. I would be lost.

    ...but I know how important back-ups are. Once a week for now but daily as I get more useful stuff on the device.

    I would be upset, but I have a backup so I would eventually settle down

    I don't have enough to worry about it now but, once it becomes a necessity every week at least.
    I can't imagine with how much some people store on theirs losing everything they've taken the time to input on a portable device.

    Luckily I missed the outages :-D They happened around the same time I got my berry and I didn't have my data plan set up yet.

    If my berry got lost I don't know what I'd do :-( If it was broken I'd go through the CB forums and see if I can fix it myself (I've already done this when my trackball suddenly stopped working, luckily the FAQ in the CB forums has a great thread on cleaning the trackball mechanism). If I couldn't fix it myself I'd go through the arduous task of getting it professionally repaired, or more likely, buy a new one and upgrade in the process!

    I'll probably back-up once a month when I get mine, if I get programs even sooner.

    For me, once a week is ok!

    It would just be another reason to upgrade!

    My account exists in BES so the device, apart from the mem card, has little intrinsic value. What is on my mem card is a copy from my computer. Apparently the next version of BES will wipe the mem card too, woohoo!

    If it gets nicked I’ll hop on eBay and get another!

    Mine is set to automatically back up once a week. i suppose if anything happened to it, I'd get a replacement and just reinstall everything. No worries.

    Once my kid dropped mine in the commode and it was slightly wet, I let it dry and used the hair dryer on it and worked good as new. If I lost it I would have to buy a new one. And when the outage happened, yes, I was affected and was like Wtf is the problem ? I had no clue and neither did my carrier.
