    I have one out of need. I'd love to have a slim stylish fashion phone, but I run 2 fitness companies (1 gym and 1 consulting company) and Email and on the go calendaring are needed. I also keep detailed notes on contacts as well. I've had every smartphone platform available and I chose blackberry for it's simple menu system and unflinching OS reliability and Hardware build quality. I've been using a BB now sinch the 6 series with mnochrome screens.

    I have a blackberry because, honestly, I like to have nice things, and I like to be on top of the technological side of the world. I've got a nice lap-top, digital camera and blackberry (phone, lap-top and camera in one).

    Most of the reason I got mine so I could be in contact with the people I work with and not have to pay for it-they use a different carrier-so I was able to drop my minutes a substantial amount
    Otherwise, I wanted to be able to access the internet when I couldnt otherwise and be able to check my personal email when I couldnt bc of not being near a computer. I am also horrible with remembering where I need to be, when I need to be there, so it helps me keep important dates---birthdays included ;-)

    My friends and I went out last night for my birthday and we lost the address of the place we were going-i pulled out my phone-googled the place and voila-got the address.....this was something I didnt even consider when I got the phone.

    I told the wife I need it to put my appointments on it to help me remember them. Which is true but I just wanted a BB.

    Originally I got it because I wanted a Full QWERTY keyobard. I saw the pearl and realized I didn't want it because I got the same price for both the Pearl 2 and the Curve, so I went with the Curve.

    It also helps me manage my life. When I was working it would help me remember which days I worked. I use it for important events such as birthdays, I'm going into the military so when I'm not able to be near a computer my GF/Fiance will still have a way to write me and be in contact with me.

    Also some neat like mentioned above, I use it to look up directions quite a bit. There's always an app to fit my needs, Its overall the best phone I've ever owned personally.

    Yeah I can say I'm addicted

    Initial purchase was a business decision but now wouldn't be w/o the BB even if retired.

    I got a BB for work -email & appointments. Now I don't know how I got along without it. It is so much more than a phone. I can have everything in one place - calendar for everything work & personal -contacts -email - the internet - its great

    I got it because I needed a better way to keep track of my appointments, and stuff at work. In addition, I have three kids and all their reports are now done via PowerPoint, so I have little time on the home computer. My BB has made my work and personal life so much better.

    but STABILITY is my key reason.

    For biz, mainly.

    I run a graphic and web design company and if people want something done fast (you would be surprised how many people need "super quick" work doing. It's also worth a "super big" premium so it was worth it. My Treo never seemed to want to work with me, more against me, so I figured I'd go BB before I went to T9+HP 211

    Still, I love full QWERTY (because I can type like a demon on them) and also I'm a fan of the trackball. I've had it a few days yet with the ease of use, I can quickly fly through everything without even looking at the thing! It's really intuative and cool, so to be honest I bought it because it works with me. Not against me.

    Well the easy reason is because I'm a geek. But i've had pda's and or smartphones since highschool. Going back to the handspring. Now I have become so reliant on having mobile email and web that I no longer "want" a blackberry its has become a genuine need for one. Getting rid of my Blackberry would be like getting rid of my truck......could i do it? yeah but I sure wouldn't know what to do with myself

    Because I like being able to only input information once. I use to have a PDA but found I would still have to do things twice. It's all about efficiency for me. Plus I'm a full-time student and it keeps me organized.

    Cause with a wife and kid I barely get to turn on my $2500 custom gaming rig before I'm interrupted by something. My berry is the only way I can check my email or watch youtube or do anything on the internet without interruption.

    Thank god for these things, my bathroom time is now complete.
