    I always hear things about people being addicted to their phone and what not. But for those of you who use your phones for things outside the realm of making phone calls and texting, what else do you do with your phone?
    Just curious
    I bought my 8900 primarily for day trading on the go.

    Everything. I get all my sports scores with Score Mobile, I can check Facebook messages, check the upcoming weather, BBM with whoever I need to, check the crackberry forums if i'm bored at work, and basically use it as a multi-purpose communication tool.

    Texting, web, calendar, email, chat, news, social networking, addresses, etc. My blackberry doesn't rule my life but it does play a big part in the organization and planning of my life.

    Main reasons are:
    - Always on internet (I tend to keep some IM apps open w/ people I know from work, friends, family)
    - Battery life with said "always on internet"
    - Push Email (yes, I know there are other options on other platforms, but this again ties into the battery life/always on).

    Basically tie the above together. It just makes life easier overall. Plus I'm always getting news stuff sent to me.

    Morning routine:

    Turn off BB alarm.
    Roll over and pick up BB.
    Check messages. Email/SMS/MMS etc.
    Check UberTwitter and post "Good morning, world "
    Check Facebook and reply to people's wall posts.
    Open BeejiveIM.
    Open Viigo and read the day's news.
    Get out of bed.

    Not only that, but I feel as if I'm connected to the world the entire day. It's a great feeling to have knowing you have a communication outlet waiting at your fingertips.

    I use all of the following alot throughout my daily life.

    BB alarm clock, Calendar (has been the best organization tool!), 2 e-mail accounts on the go is convenient, texting, AIM, myspace, facebook, news, weather, having wikipedia on the go is awesome, and just having access to the mobile web when I'm out is convenient.

    I am cooking sausage and pancakes on mine as I post this. Lol. But seriously, I post to my blog, check All my email, schedule events, keep tab of my stocks (which have really tanked in the past couple of years), listen to streaming radio and play games in my downtime. Of course I Tweet, message my friends, and take pictures, as well as keep track of the weather and the TV listings. I travel a lot for business, and more often that not, I tether to my laptop to get internet. Beats trying to find a Wi-Fi signal all the time, and since I have the unlimited plan with T-Mobile it works out great. Question I guess would be, what CAN'T you do with your BlackBerry, aside from making breakfast, of course.

    Edit:
    Look up medications at work

    Ah yes, I forgot that one. I am a Pharm. Tech. It comes in VERY handy for looking up meds.

    I'd be screwed without my 8900.

    I use it to keep appointments, reminders, it's my alarm clock, web surfing, tracking packages, instant business and personal email responses, social networking, watching movies, music, taking and sending video and pics, and of course taking calls/texts from my staff members, family and friends.

    Wish the 8900 keyboard was as good as my old 8830WE.

    Oh, I also use it to post to my google blog, upload videos to youtube, and upload pics to picasaweb. I also use it as my home phone via UMA.

    The 8900 is a **** of a device.

    It's not that I am constantly on mine. It is just that I always have it with me. With Facebook, Ubertwitter, and everything else, I feel like I am always connected.

    One of the coolest things I do with my Tour is listen to Slacker Radio through my car speakers! I have a 2002 Accord and it has a cassette deck so I purchased one of those cassette adapters and connect my phone to the radio. It's like having XM radio in the car for FREE!! I love it!

    Also use the camera alot along with FB, Twitter, Crackberry (all the time!) and lots of sports apps.

    Love my BB!!
