    I'm a Photographer Manager and a Tour manager. Constant emails and calls. I had to upgrade my phone plan to accommodate all the calls I get.
    At least 14 hours of the day I'm on the phone busy.

    My Bold is currently just my personal phone, as I work at a large convenience store/restaurant chain on the east coast as a store-level assistant manager. I'm not happy about having to leave my freelance music production job (the BB would've been indispensable then) but due to uncontrollable circumstances, I needed to get a job with a better paycheck/health benefits.

    Sorry to turn that into a "poor-me" story, but I'm wondering if anyone had any advice about good career fields to explore for part-time college while working a rotating shift 45-hr work week. I want to go back to school, something in the entertainment business or maybe acoustical engineering (or something,) but I'm thinking it's going to be difficult with how often this job expects me to be available. I'm only 23, so I've got plenty of time and no mortgage so I think this is the perfect time for me to reconsider my options.

    Haha, long post- so sorry. Hit me up with a PM or a PIN message if you've got any advice (especially you guys with cool jobs, I need a great outside opinion.)
    Hah whoa man. I'm in the same boat exept I have a huge mortage and a ton of debt. I'm 23 as well and got stuck in this assistant manager job making enough to be comfortable, and my fiance was working for the same company so we were doing well. They just canned her so now I'm like WTF! I realize how insignificant this paycheck is for 50+ hours a week. She just enrolled in school full tim for radiology, but like you I need more options. This was cool when I was 19 with no mortage or kids. Now I got 2 kids, house and 2 cars. Shell be done with school in 18-24 months Then its my turn, but I have no idea which direction to go. restaurant managment has been decent so far but I need to expand. I was a musician in a band until this job, I kept it going for awhile but with the kids the wife the house 50+ hours it was kind of impossible. Still own all of the equiptment to run a full scale live show. Haven't let go yet...

    Operations supervisor for a Municipal utility. My 8900 is my personal phone and I have a Motorola flip at work with direct connect. The motorola is slated to be replaced with an 8350i soon. I wouldn't let them set my 8900 up to access my work email, I'm taking no chances IT would push their policy or WebSense to my personal device.

    I feel like such a geek I just wanted a BB, I don't need it for work, in fact out company has a policy reg. smartphones, (If you have on and you want to be on BES, you have to get management app. but if it isn't req. for your job, then they wont support it) go figure. I figured I dont need mt 3 company emails that I get a day coming to my BB, for an extra $5 a month and the headache of BES. I'll stick with BIS and be happy that I can do what I want with it.

    Oh by the way, I work at an Automotive Dealership....

    Real Estate Appraiser. Mostly commercial property. My BB comes in handy with contacts, e-mail, calendar, phone (of course), and (believe it or not) the camera. I don't carry my work camera with me all the time and in a pinch, the BB camera comes in very handy. i.e. About six months ago, I apprasied a property before improvements. I recently was traveling by the subject and used my BB to take an updated picture for the file and to develope a comparable sale. Since I've gotten my BB, its made my work life much easier.
