    I am both a spotter and a ..."spottee?"...
    I have seen quite a few people with BBs when I'm at work...and I always try to talk to them and make sure they know about Crackberry right off the bat...then, if it turns out they are a fellow 8100 Pearl user, I make sure they know about ColorPearl...
    But I have also BEEN spotted by BB users, since mine is virtually attached to my right hand...and they have always come up and said ooooo, nice Pearl, or something similar.
    The community is GROWING!!!

    I find myself doing this as well... All the time. "Curve"

    The other day I saw this guy opening up a box and I knew it was a "refurbed" 8310 from the packaging.

    Hi all! Its so good to know that I am not the only one who spots and actually seeks out other BB users! For some odd reason when I discover they don't have a BB I feel sort of let down.

    I just love tech so I'm always looking at people's phones. I used to hate Blackberries...

    now I find myself going out of my way to set unsual alerts since so many ******** people have blackberries lol! My first time out I was nearly driven mad when someone else's phone was going off with the stock alerts...

    But spending time here I do notice other blackberries more often. Just like when me or my friend got a new car and I started seeing them all over the road suddenly.

    You know I honestly didn't start looking for other bb users until I saw this thread title a few days ago lol. Now I'm checking to see what everyone has then I wonder if they are a crackberry.

    I started doing it when I got my first BlackBerry almost a year ago. I got the Red 8310 Curve for Christmas last year and my spotting got even worse. I love it when I see celebrities with my phone. It makes me feel special. I remember being on BreatheHeavy.com - The Number One Britney Spears Fansite With The Best Britney Spears News, Photos, And Media and saw a picture of Britney Spears with my exact BlackBerry. When I see that people have older models, I think to myself that they need to upgrade.

    Yes I find myself looking at other's phones...it use to be just cause I was curious and liked how it looked, but now it is a addiction! Having 3 BBs myself makes it even better, I just look if its a BB I give a nod & smile...if not I just sing a little song..."Step it up to the best & the best is a BLACKBERRY..."

    I was getting off work and I was on the elevator checking my BB, when a girl that I work with got on and saw me. She then proceeded to pull out her BB and starting doing something on hers.

    If she was actually a cool person, I would have struck up a conversation with her about our addictions...Too bad she has a stuck up attitude....
