    Still getting used to it. My Curve is a little over a month old, so the honeymoon isn't over yet.

    I do too much with my blackberry, so I back up weekly. If I loose my BB I would go nuts waiting for the replacement to come in. I love my BB so much I opted to get the insurance from T mobile, its the only peace of mind that I have, so I would just pay the deductible and I get another BB on its way.

    I use an 8320 but have a spare 8100, 7100, and 7290 laying around so I'd just use one of those. Gotta love BES so all my data would come back on the next Enterprise Activation! Lovin' BES.

    I just got my BB and I can't imagine a moment without it. I felt to bad for BB users when those outages occured, I just knew it must be something terrible. I can empathize but please don't ask me to join.

    If my BB were broken or list, I would RUN not WALK to the nearest Sprint store and get another one!! When I couldn't get my BB service to work, I checked first with my big monster (PC) and periodically checked my BB until it was back up.

    I've only had mine for a short time, but I think if I lost it I'd be frantic. I think I'd better learn how to back up, now that you mention it!

    At first, it would be a sad, sad, day if my BB was lost/stolen or broken. Then... I'd go shopping for a new one. And... if a new model was out... : ) It'd be a happy day, after all.

    Seeing as how managed to get my BB to lock up twice in 2days, and get that stupid calendar bug where an event won't go away, I had to back up twice already so I could do a wipe. I'm addicted to features other than mail currently, so I'm not sure how it'll affect me in the future.

    If my Blackberry was lost or stolen....I would ......shoot my neighbors dog....

    He's kind of annoying, I should shoot him anyway...(with a squirt gun of course).

    I just got my BB, so I haven't been affected by any service blackouts. As long as I can still get to my Address Book and clanedar, though, I'll be OK ... there ARE still land lines available for thos important calls.

    I sync my BB almost every day, but haven't backed it up yet. Is there a difference?

    My Company forces a backup daily so I would be covered but the thought alone scares me. I'm offically addicted to my crackberry.

    I started backing up my BB after I had to wipe it the first time and I had a hard time getting my contacts back, since the DM thought I had deleted them and deleted them out of Outlook. Luckily I found a backup of my datafile that was recent enough not to lack any adresses.

    Now I backup about every week, since there's not too much coming/going onto my BB and I enabled that checkbox to ask before it deletes anything

    If it was stolen....well I'd hope the person on the other site would give it back to me...


    P.S: Happy New Year!
