    Obama may have to give up his beloved BlackBerry

    Advertisement



    Before he ran for president Barack Obama quit smoking. Now that he's won the job, he may have to break another addiction: Checking his BlackBerry for e-mail.

    The president's e-mail can be subpoenaed by Congress and courts and may be subject to public records laws, so if a president doesn't want his e-mail public, he shouldn't e-mail, experts said. And there may be security issues about carrying around trackable cell phones.

    Obama transition officials haven't made a decision on what the new president will or will not carry, but those who have been there say it's unlikely he'll carry his BlackBerry and he may be in for some withdrawal pains.

    I would rather give the presidency back then have them take My BB from me. The withdraws would be so bad I wouldn't be able to concentrate on being president. Hahaha.

    I think he should be able to keep his government BlackBerry and use email.

    His BES Admin should just disable Send As Permissions....Just a thought.

    I would still carry my blackberry and disguise it as another device... More like Mission Impossible/ James Bond! Shyt, he's the President and he should be able to carry what he wants, when he wants! GO OBAMA

    If Bill Clinton found a way to do his dirt in the Oval Office...I am sure Obama can find a way to stay connected with his Blackberry...lol

    i didnt know Obama smoked..
    Im more than sure that he can have his personal phone. But just cant use it for government work. But since his job is full time, like 24-7 then, well, i guess he cant have and use it.

    I'm sure he will still carry his blackberry and use it to some capacity. Life wouldn't be life without a blackberry

    Read this on yahoo, I can understand the rules about some of the things a president does but even he should have the right to do some things in private. I would think emailing his wife or kids would be okay along with any friends. maybe this will change the laws

    If they are worried about him getting emails on his phone they should just give him an IPhone. Problem solved.
