    I was thinking about this, cause im living it right now.

    I had a Curve 8300, but a few months ago lost my job, try to live making freelance, consulting, etc. but the situation was harder everyday.

    So one day i had to sell my BB to survive and make a payment very important.

    I had 2 months with the support and hapiness she gave me.

    I'm desperate, i need a smartphone but the money situation doesn't improve, so maybe i'll be without a BB for a lot more.

    ....

    So, how do you feel if suddenly lose your BB and there's no easy way to get a new one again?

    I feel for you man. Im almost there myself. Hard to justify the $130 bill every month from Verizon for just 900 minutes. I'm either going to have to switch carriers to someone cheaper or go back to a regular cell phone.

    I'm sorry you're going through this. I rely on my BB for soooooo many things - it organizes me day, it keeps my in touch, it tells me where to go when I'm driving, it plays my music while I'm working out, it captures my memories with the camera & video recorder, and it graces my hand with its beautiful magenta self!!! I can't even imagine being without her for a minute!

    Seems like not, but:

    1.- I don't have a job at the moment, i throw resumes a lot but none is working.
    2.- I live in Mexico, any cool gadget is a little bit more expensive, i was trying to get at least an used 7290, but it cost me about $120 dollars, this is too much for a very old device. So maybe i'm off the fun until i can save about 300 or 400 dlls. to gain access to a Curve or 8820.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, but God willing you WILL find a job and have another BB in your hands again, and the many other things you are doing without

    God Bless You

    I am really sorry to hear this and do not even want to think about this happening in my life...

    I seriously would feel lost. Rapheal (my BB) is such a huge part of my life, if I could I would have him as my lover !! LMAO

    But seriously I'm sure things will get better, you'll get back on your feet and get a bigger and better BB.

    Hang in there...it doesn't rain everyday....the sun comes out eventually :-)

    honestly if your having hard time paying a phonebill, i would really suggest getting everything else in life working first before worrying about having a BB.

    my bb is a luxury accessories... my life will still be fine without it.

    *not trying to offend anyone*

    Thanks for the kind words, really.

    Karliejal, i have BIG problems, and yes my main priority is get all working again, maybe the BB is my smallest problem but is so sad not to have it with me!

    It seems that i will start a new job in the next weeks, right now im on the tutorial/trainee period if this works well hope in less then 6 months i can try to retake my life in the same level i was before.

    I'd probably cry, especially since I don't have a replacement phone because I kinda purposely ran over and beat the living helll out of the one I had previously.

    but I feel your pain... I don't know what I'd do without it.

    nah, the phone I had was a really cheap POS phone and I hated it so much that I felt the need to destroy it... I needed it at the time but looking back I think I would've rather gone without lol.
