i don't know if I want a blackberry.
i'm kind of torn.

I like the phone itself.
but the idea of being able to check my email alllllll the time and be connected allllll the time kinda freaks me out.
i obsessively check my email already, but only when i'm home.

Honestly, it's totally awesome. Being able to check your e-mail especially if your work e-mails you. They ask me if I want a shift tonight and I can instantly reply. Not to mention, I can be on MSN all the time too

yeaaah...i don't want that lol.
and i never use MSN!

E-mails I can handle. but i don't want people messaging me constantly. that gets annoying.
i'll do the email and i'll do the twitter, but that's it
i'd use it mostly for gps, instant web searching etc.

+1 for physical qwerty keyboards, I love them and I don't see how I could go over to the Storm.

You don't "check" your emails... they just come to you. That's the beauty of blackberries... push emails ftmfw! It's not about being obsessed, it's just having the ability to receive emails instantly and deciding if you care or not. Most of the time I don't

Call them up and get them to send you a new one.

Meh, I would get a new phone free from Telus if I asked for it. It's just this think is armoured like a tank and I wasn't sure about the reliability of the new dainty ones you guys have. I probably would still have a big old motorola flip phone if I could!


I wish I had Windows 2000... it rocked.

I work in front of a computer and we use Outlook at work. I have 2 msn messengers running and I can browse any work place safe website I want.

That pretty much means I have absolutely no need for a BlackBerry

Touchscreens are nice though
