    Thumbs up Can you go ONE night without your Blackberry?

    Advertisement



    I ran across this article tonight and I have to admit that I relate 100% to the author ... When I think how much time I spend on either my PC or my BB I start to feel kinda bad for neglecting life in general not to mention my family and friends.

    Sharon Sarmiento knew it was time to unplug when she realised she was blogging in her dreams and hearing imaginary instant messages.

    For Ariel Meadow Stallings, it was the hours lost while surfing the internet that left her feeling like she had been in a drunken blackout.

    Both women are part of a new grass-roots movement in which tech geeks, internet addicts, Blackberry thumbers and compulsive IMers are deciding to wrest back control of their lives by daring to switch off - if only for a day.

    I've gone back and forth between my SideKick 3 and my 8100. While it was nice to have a full keyboard, the compactness of the 8100 (and my upcoming 8120) were just too tempting to be without for longer. As well as 10 email accounts, rather than 4 on my other phone. I also got constant errors while trying to post from the SK3 (Bad Request or Invalid Request) to this forum. That was the other major reason I came back.

    God no! The point of having a BB is communication. I rely perhaps too much on my BB. I now make sure that I have a spare backed up just incase !
    An average morning. Wroke up (cus that helps lol) by the alarm on my BB. Sat drinking my coffee reading what emails came through the night. Watched the last 5 minutes of a TV series on my BB. Then came into Pinstack for my fix. Why would I even want to change that??
    I may drink like a fish, smoke like a train and always have my BB in hand! But that means nothing lol lol

    See, I fixed the problem of making my loved ones feel neglected, by buying my girlfriend a blackberry now she is just as addicted, and we both have our BBs in bed

    I love the that that I can communicate with people that I would never have met without my BB. To be able to make friends with likeminded people from around the world just because of the phone you have is well incredible! Let's be truthful, yes the BB is a well made device but there are phones out there that offer more power, more built in hardware. But its the passion that these phones give you, the versatility of be able to add remove software and the community that they bring.

    No! I think the only thing that would MAKE ME go a day without my BB is Catching a Case and being on Lockdown. Short of that No, know reason to!
