    ...You Might be Spending too Much Time on Your BlackBerry

    Advertisement



    If you did not know that the BlackBerry had an On/Off switch, and that the battery pull was not the only way to power down the unit...you might be spending too much time on your BlackBerry.

    If you're disappointed that you can't install a custom theme on your television set....you might be spending too much time on your BlackBerry.

    If you notice every new micro-scratch on your device, but didn't notice that your son/daughter/wife/husband/other wrecked the new car....you might be spending too much time on your BlackBerry.

    If you've spent more money on games and themes than you spent for the device itself.....you might be spending too much time on your BlackBerry.

    If you can recite the version numbers of all of the popular 3rd party applications, but have to think about what the names of your children are....you might be spending too much time on your BlackBerry.

    If 90% of your web browsing is spent on Pinstack, Blackberry Forums, and Crackberry....you might be spending too much time on your BlackBerry.

    If you got a new Berry in the last three months, and you just can't wait for the Bold and Kickstart to come out so you can upgrade your device....you might be spending too much time on your BlackBerry.

    This is all I can think of, help me out and add to the list.

    If you get frustrated in the sanctuary at church because your BB has no signal, even though you have no intention of using it, you might spend too much time on your BB. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Or if your out where ever among people and you take your bb out of the holster for the routine 3 minute check and some individual asks "hey, is that one of those blackberry's?" And you with an overly egar smile say "yes, why it is a blackberry".

    Gilty as charged.
    I only do this when there is a BIS outage affecting email. But once I get a test reply, I don't reply to that email message.

    And just to add to this thread...

    If its 3 or 4 AM and you're still awake sending pins, emails, or other messages and your thumbs start falling asleep before you do, aka BlackBerry Thumb...you might be spending too much time on your BB.

    If you are sitting at your computer but pick up your BlackBerry to check your email.

    Wake up in the morning and the first thing you do is grab your Berry off the night stand before you can even see straight.

    Change your theme 52 times a day.

    i think i have passed the point of addiction and it has now become habitual to the point where i do these things and DON'T think twice about them, at all...

    MY blackberry needs love too!

    IF your bb "owns" as many accessories as you do ...

    And yes, I am checking emails on my bb while responding to posts on PS
