    I think I would be lost if I lost my blackberry. I shudder. I dropped it once. Almost had a heart attack.

    If it was really lost I would immediately buy another at retail.

    Do they have a cure for BB withdrawal? I would definitely need some soothing medication, hence, I back her up every day.

    If you don't back it up, you better! When the day comes that your phone crashes and all your info is lost, wow! You might break your phone!

    Call my phone company and put a block on the card. So at least they wouldn't be able to use that. Then pay the $100 deductible and get a new phone!

    How do I take a backup? ;-) I don't store anything terribly critical, but I also keep track of the apps and the URLs to reload all of my software, so I could recover in a matter of hours.

    I almost cried. Running a conference and not having my email updates or access to venue websites, I ran around from internet cafe to internet cafe to get the access I needed. Not quite secure but sufficed.

    I have only had my Blackberry a few weeks, but this was a good reminder to me to make sure I do back it up.

    I had a BB for 2 years but then I switched back to a "normal" phone. So I didn't experience the problems in 2007. But now I'm back and I would lose my mind if mine ever broke or there was another outage.

    Other than go stir crazy for the few days while awaiting a replacement, I don't know if there would be much I could do if my BB became lost/stolen/broken. I do have insurance on the device. Too new a user to have suffered the outages earlier this year.

    I killed my Pearl on Monday and had to rush out and buy a new Curve! My old Blackberry from 2001-2003 no problem to backup just email.
    The first software for backup I had gotten for my pearl, crashed it so i have not backed up nervous ver since.

    I did it when I loaded the Desktop Software. I'm going to try to do it monthly.

    I just got my first berry this past week and I backed it up immediately. I'm not completely cemented to it yet but I have a feeling I'll back it up at least once a month, maybe more.
