    so since it is crackberry.com's 3rd anniversary i was just wondering when everyone first heard the term crackberry. for me it was back when i was 17 in 2002 and my dad just got his replacement to his palm pda, it was a blackberry 5810. he was extremely impressed because it replaced his pager, pda and email, my mom refereed to it as a crack berry. she was in tech admin in the Canadian airforce and all tech admin apparently refereed to rims new blackberry brand as crackberry's.

    When I searched for a solution to a problem with my first BB in Dec 2007. Up until
    then I never heard the term and unless I am referring to this site, I never use it.

    My son said the word about three days after I bought my 9000 in 2009. His reminder ended with my coming to CrackBerry. Naming the site is the only reason I use the term today.

    Oddly enough it was when I bought my BB from the local Sprint store. The CS rep told me that I would want to bookmark Crackberry on my phone because I would be using it alot. She was right!

    Strangely enough, when I was having trouble with my iPhone. I was pulling my hair out and trying to decide whether to keep the device or let it go. I joined about that time.

    I had always heard about this site, but as far as I can remember I've only hard the term used once. I was on a conference call & some guy was apologizing for his sound quality because he was on the road & "had to call in on his crackberry."

    I think I heard it on the news. They were talking about how much Obama loved his Blackberry.

    I heard or saw the term after I got my new 8900 and was looking for a forum to join. That's how I found this site.

    I first heard about this web site when I was on the phone with Verizon trying to figure out something on my Pearl. This site has been such a HUGE help to me with my "addiction" and has even helped me graduate to my **BELOVED*** Tour! Thanks Crackberry!!! :-)

    I referred to BB's as "Crackberries" long before hearing of this site. Those I know with them were very addicted to them.

    I don't remember how I heard of this place, probably the result of a Google search. I'm glad I came, and now that I'm here, it's going to be awful hard to get rid of me.

    I heard a friend use the term referring to his berry because his GF called it that. Six months later I found this site and joined up after buying my 1st berry in April '07. Coincidence, Ithink not!
