    I use mine for a phone, the internet (when away from a P-C), entertainment (games), crossword puzzle help, phone number/address lookup, GPS (directions,) messager, friend and companion, email notifier, calenday, alarm clock, news source, weather forcaster, and nearly everything else except for meals.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I started using my old Pearl as a tethered modem then got into the many uses of a Blackberry. Upgraded to my 8830WE and use it for a phonebook, mobile web, driving directions and ocasionally for a tethered modem. Besides that, I just like em.

    I hope we're all using them as a phone. If not, we've lost our focus. . ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I use mine pretty much like you do digdug. Only on pc a few times a month now to pay bills, update sites. The Berry is an indispensable communications device, whether emailing, instant messaging, checking stocks or the news, address book, memos and tasks, etc. What a wonderful device

    An easier question is what I don't use it for LOL.

    Bible, mobile networking (Facebook, Twitter), Mobile blogging, voice GPS (with bluetooth puck), gaming, music, movies, financial management and bill payment, Netflix management, database creation and management, writing, etc.

    Oh yeah... the basics too: calling, surfing, etc.

    Recently, I had to go without a laptop for a while my screen was being replaced. I was able to do well without my laptop.I had 15 personnel reviews to get done in Excel. I was able to get them done with Docs2Go.

    My original idea was just being curious-i've had my 8830 for about 2 months(my 1st BB) and now I've got other ideas for using it-everytime I get on,I learn something new. Thanks stacks

    I use it for the Internet when I'm away from the computer. It has my calendar and contacts, and it's my alarm clock.
    It's also a great phone. There are areas in central Indiana where you'll get 1 or 2 bars, the but I can always get a call through.
    Finally it works great in Europe. I go there once or twice a year, and I've got full data coverage with no problems.

    I have two.... I use them both for phone/email/bbm.... My Bold gets used for absolutely everything, including tethered modem every now and then.

    If only I had a way to print and fax directly from my BB, I would no longer need a PC.
