    My BlackBerry is a nice phone, which is in use 24/7. Why would anyone need to swap it?

    I use my Blackberry for personal only not business. Sometimes I think about just using my spare phone when I am at work. I work in the construction industry and i feel like i may damage the berry. But I also worry about swapping sims daily causing damage to the devices. Wish I could have the berry as data only and a phone for voice. With AT&T its very difficult.

    I work in a cabinet shop and have often worried about the state of health my blackberry is in. I would rather carry a different phone at work. Maybe 2 phones tied to the same phone number? I'm not sure if that's possible. I've been looking into cheap phones just for this purpose.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    When I leave my house, I make sure I have 3 things with me at all times:

    Car keys
    Wallet
    Pearl2

    Things are difficult without any of the 3.

    The only thing that I do (if I have the time or money to go out) is to set a call forward to one of my spare phones. And if that phone is lost or stolen I still have my BB.

    I guess I could now say I have a weekend phone now that I have 2 Pearls. I could carry the 8120 during the week and use the 8100 for weekend trips.

    Or I am in the process of hunting down an unlocked GSM Motorola SLVR. Cute phone I have always wanted LOL

    I have an small old Nokia that I occasionally use on the weekends if I'm out walking around and don't want to haul the BB. It's pretty rare though.

    If I go to the beach or a bad part of town, I use my old Samsung Sync. Other than that, it's my Curve 24/7/366.
