    I know some people never log off Blackberry Pin Messenger, not mentioning any names...

    But, do people turn their devices off, ever? I have mine set to turn off, and on at certain times...

    What say you?

    I don't turn mine off. When I go to bed, I just switch to Phone Only profile. When flying somewhere I just turn off the wireless, but don't turn off the BB.

    Your kidding me? It actually has a way to shut off? I guess that's one of the icon's that I hid since I don't believe in my baby ever shutting down except for when I need to swap out batteries and then I sweating bullets until it comes back up.

    Always on.

    At night I switch to vibrate, but I still am compelled to check it every time I hear it and the instant I wake up.

    I program my BB to automatically turn off after midnight and turn on at 5 am.

    Otherwise I'll be getting up everytime it gives me email notifictaion.

    LMAO - now that I have the alarm thing 'down', I doubt I'll turn it off. Further more, I can't stand it in the morning when I get 10-15 emails, and they all show the same time as received! Most annoying...

    You guys are nuts.....I've finally found a place to call home now
    Every once in a while at work I will turn it off and then to do the ole battery pull, but that's about it.

    The problem with BBs is that not only are they very useful, but they're very addictive. They've got both a practical and fun side to them which makes them hard to put down no matter what you need to do at the time.
