    I've been stressing about $$$!

    So far... Getting evicted from my place, need oil change on my car, paid my insurance, paid my loan, paid my car payment, need brakes (possibly roters too), and need gas on my car.

    Yet I got into more debt by adding another line to get the storm! so all my bills for january will be a total of...

    car payment280+insurance 198+phone bill including the storm 468+loans from DEC 586+monthly gas if prices stay 140=1,672.00

    yup yup I dont get paid that much a month!

    So I WANT TO KNOW WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO KEEP YOUR BLACKBERRY WHEN S#!t GETS TOUGH.

    well, sadly i don't have data on my berry, so i can't use everything, but i would never give up my berry - even as just a phone. i tried to goto a "reg" phone and sold it after 6 months to get into a berry again.

    that all being said, try just running voice till things get better.. i know it kinda takes half the point of the device away, but worth a shot! BEST OF LUCK!

    I would go that far but unfortunantly vzw cant have the bb's without data

    And even if that was possible, I might get cold feet cz of the storm. lol.

    does verizon use sim cards? i can't remember..... cause if they do, you can always just drop the sim into another phone, cancel the data plan, then drop the sim back into your bb.... otherwise, yeah, you're kinda stuck...

    Verizon doesn't use SIMs - they're CDMA.

    PTR, Sometimes keeping a BB seems a little unwise if financial matters get out of control and you're supporting a Blackberry instead of yourself. I'm all for you being able to keep it but don't let the suffering get too bad...and don't drive an unsafe car. Good luck.

    sh*t got tight, i lost my job early last year, i had a very small amount of savings, i gave up my cadillac, my apartment, a BUNCH of electronics, my cellphone service. Eventually landed a job with at&t so now even if money gets tight my cellphone stays on seeing as it affects my livelihood hehe...and the bill is VERY small.

    but you have a storm now, and you mention loyalty so i assume you have other models...sell them!

    Money is tight, but I plan to stay bb. I don't see any other phones that I would want. I also have a lot of info in my bb that I would dread to write down and put on another phone. My brother has a treo. Its older and he likes it better than bb, but it has a lot of bugs and breaks a lot more than my 8100 does. There is also more software for my berry than there is for treos. I had to use a Motorola v360 for two weeks waiting on my replacement 8100 and it was the worst two weeks ever! I will never stray from smart phones or bb. I wouldn't dare write anything this long on another phone either. I have tried on my last phone and it didn't have enough memory to hold it all. It would shut off or freeze.
    Life is like a movie, you've sat through half of it and its sucked so far, it probably isn't gonna get great right at the end to make it all worthwhile. you shouldn't get blamed for walking out early
