    I'm pretty sure you don't have to hand it over. Unless your considered a threat or terrorist. Plenty of business people travel everyday with their BBs.

    I don't see why you would have to. Unless your hiding something...lol

    No I haven't come across any issue while traveling out/back into the country with my BB. You'll be fine.

    Ijust got back from vacation tonight. When I would go thru the security check points I put both my BBs (8830 and 8130) in my bookbag to put thru the scanner. And every time they had to run my bag thru the xray twice before giving it to me. The only other thing in there was a couple hats and a belt. That happened 3 out of 4 security check points I had to go thru. They didn't say anything. They just have me my stuff after they ran it again. Oh and that was twice in DC and once in Portland, maine.

    Took my 8100 to France last September - not a problem in any airport. They must see a million of these things.

    I was coming through customs in Boston (from Paris) and I was SO excited to finally have internet back, I rushed to Pinstacks.....

    But the customs officer guy asked me what was in my hands, to which I replied "MY BLACKBERRY! =D I'm so happy to have internet back!" And he flipped out, and ordered me to give turn it off, remove the battery, and hand it to him... Which I did. After he looked it over for a minute or two, he gave it back and told me not to replace the battery or turn it on again until I was outside the airport.

    =/ that's my horror story (not TOO bad.. It just caught me off guard)
