    Quite simply my gf hated my BB from day one. She felt she was competition with it for my love. I'm a chronic multitasker and no matter what cycle of tasks I'm on my pearl is always one of them. She hated how every couple minutes my phone would go off from a text, BB messenger, or email. It got to the point where just the sight of it would earn me a dirty look lol. I explained to her what she already knew, there are very few times I'm not multitasking. And though all of those few things revolve around her I guess it just wasn't enough. She eventually accepted how big of a part my BB had in my life and I tried my best to keep usage to a minimum around her (impossible lol).

    Tension between the two of them was stable for weeks. Then one day we found ourselves in the middle of nowhere, thanks to her directions. Being as bad with directions as she is she starts to panic! I on the other hand smoothly say, "blackberry to the rescue.". She goes, "huh?". Without responding I pull ol BB out, open Google Maps, and point; "this is where we are... This is where we need to be. " She paused for a second then smiled. The fear in her eyes slowely faded and she says, "oh ok". I sarcastically say, "and you hate my phone...". She just smiled.

    About 20 minutes later (once again on the road) she says, "I'm coming to terms with your phone..". I just laughed. She made some off topic comment about how she has trouble remembering stuff. While opening my tasks and calendar, I tell her the only way my life stays in any kind of order is because of my BB. A couple days later she tells me she wants a Curve. in the end... BB wins.



    Let's hear your stories and experiences with your BB and significant other.

    My story ended with me purchasing one for her.

    Either that or I'd be making love to my berry.

    I talked about my new BB all the time before I even purchased it! When she finally saw it, her response was along the lines of, "So whats the big deal with this phone?" This was only the beginning as she constantly asks for me to put down the damn blackberry, which I asked to be referred to as a crackberry! I was also ridiculed when she asked why I felt the need to protect my BB with a bodyguardz skin..

    After many pleas for me to put down my berry while out at dinner, driving, or simply around the house; as well as complaints of responding to e-mails as soon as I received them... I too had the opportunity to show off the skills of my 8830's GPS.. Routes were laid out with Google Maps app.. "Are we there yet?" was answered with a quick query for "my location" on said app; & finding our way around an unfamiliar town was also taken care of with the 8830.

    Lets just say that her Q was soon replaced by a brand new Pink Pearl from VZW! Now.. no more texts.. just BB messenger chats! She soon learned that the nice icon by the messages would also let her know if I read her msgs yet; not to mention that JiveTalk is running on her BB constantly, and she can reply to her mom's email instantly! She even called me after she felt bad she dropped her berry on the slopes and roughed it up...

    ah.. the BB love spreads.. next step.. Get her to join CB!!!

    Lol you sound like you had it worst than me. When my gf asked me what site I was on and I told her crackberry she goes, "oh god you mean there's more of you?!?!"

    Can't wait to get her her 8130. Shell learn oh yes... Shell learn.

    My bf hated my curve until he borrowed it for a couple days, while his treo was acting up, then when it was time for him to get a new phone I convinced him on the curve, he's obsessed with it now, and finally understands my BB addiction

    I always say to understand the addiction they must experience it. Once they do they are usually hooked.

    Mine ended with my purchasing one for her.

    Either that or I'd be making love to my berry.
    This is not a bad idea. At least afterwards, I wouldn't mind cuddling and talking.

    Dude! Put down the phone, turn it off, and spend some time with the woman. There are certain things that your gf is able to do that no blackberry will ever be able to.

    OMG! i can so relate to this post. my boyfriend was so jealous that he RIPPED my skin off my BB and it dropped for the first time that day. Of course he had to march himself to the store and get me another one, but the jealousy was still so there. Now he has an 8830 and im just waiting to get my hands on it! lol.

    My fiance bought me my berry after complaining forever i wanted one but not being able to afford the full retail price. He now regrets that fateful day as he hides my berry on me so i am not checking my email or texting friends...he hates my berry!! I'm trying to get him to buy the curve for himself since he is due for an upgrade...but he hates mine so much he'd never get his own!!

    maybe i'll buy him one as his wedding gift!!!

    Your stories are inspiring....I have a 8830 and soon getting the Curve 8810 with the gps. My wife, on the other hand, has an abused Razr V3 that the kids get their hands on too often.

    She hates the treatment my BB gets but she is addicted Brickbreaker and always wants to use my BB. I can't have this so I pulled out one of the old 7250s just so she can have her addiction and I can mine.

    But I now feel sorry for her lugging the 7250 around. I'm thinking the Pearl or Kickstart when it comes out. She needs something that is not too extreme that can maintain simplicity while still allowing the user to really experience the BB.

    I'm open to suggestion.

    Pearl or Kickstart sounds about right Razr users seem to adapt to SureType quite well (including myself)
