    I don't use my BlackBerry for avoiding social contact - my lack of regular showers takes care of that for me. I'm just a person that enjoys talking to himself! My BB comes in very handy for that purpose - When I need to discuss something out loud with myself, I just put the ol' Berry up to my ear and start yakkin'! People think I'm having a conversation on the phone. It was while doing this with my trusty ol' 7290 BlueBerry BlackBerry that a child walked by me, hand in hand with his father, and asked: "Daddy, why is that man talking to his calculator?"

    What are these humans? Thought I was typing to puters.
    Up here we use shotguns to avoid human contact. Want em to stay way from my stills.....


    Really though, 13%? I would think it'd be higher. I thought people substituted Facebook friends for real ones. I mean, who'd want 100's of real life friends.....

    I have used my BlackBerry to avoid talking to strangers in bars and coffeehouses if I was meeting friends and arrived before my did. It always gets the annoying people to leave me alone. Then the BlackBerry goes into hiding once my friends arrive and I have people I want to talk to around me.

    I do the same thing these people are doing in an elevator. I don't have time to be talking to the people from Wells Fargo across the hall from my company.

    I already knew I wasn't the only one guilty of this when I discovered the app that allows you to press a button and place a fake call to yourself (complete with a voice on the other end no less) LOL!

    I don't need an app. I just fake a call. Nobody would know the difference, since many people use vibrate anyway.

    I just look at my phone and start stacking and looking for new wallpapers for my phone ignoring the other people whining about their jobs and how their bosses are this and that. If I didn't have the phone youll see me telling these people off and to stay home and make way for people who actually want to earn a living not live for free
