    Hi all

    Im getting my 1st BB tomorrow, but, I'm curious, what is so addictive about the BB, is it the email, IM yahoo/AOL/MSN etc, BB Messenger, or something else?

    All of the above. I think it's pretty much the ability to do anything from anywhere on such a portable device!

    Put it this way, use it for a day - not two or three, just one - then come back and post the answer yourself!

    Trust me, you will...

    Is it possible to use a BB for just one day, Nav?

    Personally, the most addictive part of a BB for me is Berry411+Google Maps. I love being able to find any place in the country and have a map to it in no time. It's not a revolutionary concept, I know, but it works so darn well!

    "...but certainly not addicted". How many times have you looked at it, touched it, and done something on it?

    First step is admitting your addiction...

    As well as the ability to have your entire life in the palm(no pun intended) of your hand. I resisted for YEARS having a phone with my PDA......but the blackberry seduced me--and now I wonder what the heck I was fighting--I still have my life(and my kid's life, and my dog's lives)with me 24/7, and if I need to call someone I don't have to go to another phone. As soon as I get a BT headset, I will be golden.
