    Some people don't want to see work email on weekends or time off. With two devices they can leave the email behind for awhile. I have two berrys, 8800 with voice, data and ptt that I use for work. BES has locked down internet mail. I have a pearl with voice and date for private use. Share plan and the company pays the 8800 and I pay the add a line and BIS for the pearl. Works well. My wife has a pearl as well so we are pretty much always in touch.

    This is why I have both the Pearl and the 8830. They both get the job done. But the Pearl is fantastic on the size for calls. Although at times I do wish I could have the capabilities of a BlackBerry in a flip phone. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Re: So many don't use their BB as their phone, I don't get it

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ since I'm solely a personal user my 8800 is it. I wouldn't want to have to carry two devices around, too akward. I'm even a gadget-aholic and I couldn't bring myself to have that many phones/PDAs/etc. I thought the celebs having three phones was pretty entertaining though. What's wrong with having one device and filtering calls like the rest of us? You can assign custom ring tones, or just look at the caller id and say "nope, not getting that."

    I have the 8800 and i really use the data part of the phone the most; however i do use the phone to keep in touch with the wife and family. other then that the phone is all data usage.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I have an 8700 and I'm happy with the phone, and since I use my Blackberry as a non- business phone I don't have to worry about work intruding.

    Re: So many don't use their BB as their phone, I don't get it

    I prefer to text my peeps... A phone call is too formal.. hi... how are you? What are you doing...bla bla bla...etc...etc...

    However a text is quick and to the point... hey hun... going to the concert at 5...see you there! Done...finito.. le fin.. the end.

    It's great

    Having a bb is like having the best of both worlds. I can't imagine carrying more than one device.

    I may be using my BB as a PDA only, not even having Data Service lol

    My signal has been crap lately on my 7290, but I love the PDA functions of it, so I may have to go back to my Motorola V330 and use my BB as a simple PDA.

    RZR2 and 8830- I forward the calls to the rzr most of the time so I can still use data functionality when on a call. But when I'm in "try not to disturb" mode I turn off the forwarding so only my 'vips' can call for an emergency or something when I'm ignoring BB calls.

    Re: So many don't use their BB as their phone, I don't get it

    I have 2 BB's one for work and one for myself but the reality is i use one for a cellphone for everything and personal email and PIM, and the other for work email/ PIM so i can be on the phone and hash out emails at the same time. Also, since i only use one as a phone when i dont need work email i am still reachable with a lot of the PIM functionality on my perl.

    This IS interesting... because I use my Berry as a modem too and AFAIKT that [low] level data service does not conflict with my picking up the BB and reading or sending mail.

    I have a 7520 and it works great with the PTT. I know they stopped selling them but the 7100i looks pretty cool.

    QUOTE=cp6169]I use my BB for data only because I like the great organizational features of the BB, but I also need the walkie talkie feature of a Nextel phone. If there was a BB with Nextel PTT I would be happy and consolidate my two phones.[/QUOTE]
