    I'm in the same boat as 180kid.. I have my 8100 for text, email, and the net. A Nextel i860 for the unlimited incoming calls and year direct connect.

    This is so true. Now that I've been using a BB for so long, the thought of having to text on a regular cell phone is dreadful...

    I used to carry an iPhone and a sidekick, now I carry an iPhone and a Curve.

    Both have things that the other doesn't. It's just.. nice to have.

    Cost justified? ehhhhh.

    Am in the same boat as you, but I use a Sprint 8830 for Aim, texting, web, email, etc and Nokia N95 8gb for voice on AT&T and its amazing apps and 5 MP cam.

    LOL I will probably also be using 2 Pearls when I get my hands on either of the newest ones in January. One for data and one for voice.

    Re: Anyone carry two smartphones?

    When I said was it a good look it was more so used as a figure of speech in regards to is it really worth it or would it just be plain stupid, and as for some of the reply's who said who cares if it looks good if you need it you need it don't worry about what the other people think -- sure that's fine and i completly agree with you but if that was the case and i needed to have two phones i really don't think i'd be posting and asking this question.


    i simply asked the question due to the fact that i don't [FONT=Calibri]necessarily [/FONT]need two pda's it's more so the want factor.

    so i was just curious if there was anyone out there who carry two smartphones because they WANT to, not because they NEED to. Thats all.

    Thanks for the clarification. Now it all makes sense.

    I fall into both categories:

    1) During the week I carry one for work & one for personal.

    2) During the weekend I carry two of my personal BB's of different sizes because I want to.

    However that's only because I'm such a BB addict....

    Cheers!

    Re: Anyone carry two smartphones?

    I carry two phones because I want to. My curve is a work phone but I don't make a ton of calls so it could just be my only phone. My other phone is smaller but it is a smart phone(n75) technically. I don't always have both phones on me but I normally do. At one point in my life I carried three phones for different reasons and that was a little much. I like having the option on my n75 to browse at 3g speeds and the camera takes better pictures than my curve does but I can hook my curve up to my car stereo to listen to music. So I say carry the two phones get a bluetooth that pairs to both at the same time and if anybody asks your wife has one number and your girlfriend has the other number

    Sounds like the perfect plan!

    In my case, that's what I enjoy about the AT&T family plan, I can have the second line for just $9.99 and have two BB's pulling minutes from the same bucket.

    My sim swapping days are over ...

    Re: Anyone carry two smartphones?

    I have three phones, a HTC Alpine PocketPC phone, a razr v3i and a Blackberry 8100 Pearl. Depending on my needs (and the number of pockets I have), I used to carry my Pearl in my right pocket and the PPC in my jacket inside pocket for Bluetooth A2DP music. Now that I've upgraded my Blackberry to the beta, it supports A2DP, so my poor PPC pretty much sits at home, and I only use it for ebooks and such. Now I only carry mY Pearl, does it all, push email, wireless music, browsing, etc, and smoothly too.

    Honestly, don't do it. Yea it's nice to have, but I would rather go back to having one phone. Unless you NEED it, it's kind of a waste. I thought I needed at the time, but I don't think I do anymore.

    I used to, back in the old days carry a i95 and a Pocket PC. After I got the first BB I would carry the PPC for the media and note taking. That did not last for long. I can't see the want to load my pockets up with stuff. As gadget loving as I am my 8830 is covering all the bases for me. The only other device I carry now is my mp3 player and that is only until I transfer more songs to the BB.
    I want to carry another toy but I don't see anything that would not be from the department of redundancy department.
