    sooo, recently i've been reading a lot of posts from bb fans who are jumping ship to android and/or iphone. i read one post a while back from a user saying that he only had a few bbm contacts (around 5-6 i believe). this left me somewhat confounded since i have over 200 contacts. to me, it seems that apart from e-mailing, bbm is the main reason people use blackberrys (atleast on my campus).

    i'm in college and it's great being able to talk to family who live abroad for FREE, and i still keep in contact with a lot of my friends from highschool who are studying in other countries as well... in fact, all the guys from my graduating class and i have formed a group on bbm. Point being, i don't know how anyone with a blackberry would not take advantage of its amazing messaging program.

    So with that said, how many contacts do you have? a lot? few? if the latter, then why still using blackberry... what other perks do you use it for and how does it compare to other phones?

    And 2 are peoples broken phones.

    SMS keeps me here. And the emailing.

    I send over 400 sometimes each day so it gets pretty crazy.
    And my berry is a workhorse.

    Over 400? That's insane! I usually send about 20-30 emails a day and maybe around 50 texts. I usually spend all my time on bbm and typically have 30-35 conversations open at a time. Sometimes it can get a little overwhelming :s

    I only have about 10 bbm contacts, but those are 10 people that I would otherwise be text messaging, so it's worth it for me.
