    Default Do you own a Blackberry??

    I have been researching endlessly, hubby's new place of work. It seems that even in this horrible economy, this company that makes Blackberrys just keeps selling more and more.

    We dont even own a cell phone, ROFL. So I was curious, who is buying these things?? Whats so great about them??
    I kinda hate all technology, so I just dont get it. I still use the payphone proudly, lol while others walk by , with various, gadgets.

    I have a cell phone, and am not interested in upgrading.
    I use my phone for calling- not playing games, texting, surfing or anything else. Juts a simple to device to make and receive calls . Don't even have VM on it.

    That's funny that you don't have a cell phone! I don't either!Will you get free ones now?
    My hubby has a rubber coated mic-phone for work and he hates it!
    I find texting kinda rude...like when I'm talking to someone and they're tapping away on their blackberry instead of giving me 100% of their attention.
    Having said that I would probably choose one of those cute pink blackberry flip phones if I HAD to....

    My husband has a BB for work but we don't own it. He brings it home and is on it all the time though.

    I have nothing like that, but dh has a cell since he's on call 24/7...otherwise we'd be stuck in the house all the time.

    However I have a few friends in Windsor lol who are addicted to their Blackberrys. I have no idea what they use them for other than facebooking and mom forums to be honest but that'd be luring enough. I know sometimes they'll post and say "Posting this from Chuck E Cheese!" or "Posting this from my back yard" lol.

    I have a cell phone, I've had one for while, mostly because I used to do a lot of driving, and it was safer (and made my Mom feel better) if I had a way to call for help if my car broke down on the highway in the middle of the night. I don't text much, but recently I have met a friend that likes to text, but, I don't text back if I am talking to someone else. I don't own a BB, I would like to but I can't afford to pay for a talk plan + data plan!

    My dh and my sister have one. The bbs make their lives easier as they both often need to be mobile and work. My dh offered me his older one but I didn't want it. I barely use my cell phone nevermind a blackberry.

    I have absolutely no interest in ever owning one. I have a cell phone that I never use.

    I'm so not a electronics/gadgety person. And I have no interest in being able to be contacted at any given time.

    I have a cell phone that I use occassionally. DH has a BB through work. Years ago he had a cell he never used so I cancelled. He uses his BB all.the.time. We have actually gotten in fights over him trying to check his email while driving, as if it couldn't wait five minutes!! I hate it. But probably just bc I don't have one myself. There's a reason they call them crackberry's.

    Is your DH going to work for RIM? No worries - they won't be going under anytime soon.
