Default Anyone else obsessed about their BB Bold?

Please Login to Remove!

I was wondering if anyone else feels obsessed about their Bold? I've had mine for about two months now, and I don't go anywhere without it! No wonder they call them Crackberrys! This is my first Blackberry and I've never felt like this over any other phone!

Like last night. I seriously had a dream about my Bold! I was dreaming that I fell in a lake and I had my in my pocket! I seriously woke up and checked if my phone was OK!

I feel like I should get rid of this phone! Is this normal? Does anyone else feel like this?

I'm even typing this on my phone even though I'm sitting beside the computer!

Yeah I know how you feel. My first Blackberry was a 8700, then a 8100, then a 8800 for a short time, then the Curve and now the Bold. I loved them all....

My wife never understood my addiction; I started with the 7290, 8700, 8100, then the 8300. I gave her the 8100 recently just to use as a texting device it didn't take long for her to want the full experience, so now she is hooked and won't go anywhere whithout her Blackberry. She never carried her old regular phone, I always had to call around looking for her; but now she never leaves without her Blackberry. I get BB Messenger chats from her all day long.

Oh, and she doesn't like my Bold!

Sadly, I dont consider myself a crackberry yet. I always have it on me but thats the same with every other phone. On the other hand, I am trying to convince my friends to get Blackberrys so we can use BB Messenger, lol

I'm addicted to it as well from 8800, 8310 to Bold now. I even got my wife one, 8310, and she's hooked too. I love the streaming video to orb.com, drains the battery so fast, but I love it. I can't do that with the curve, well, I can, but it'll be buffering too much.

I'm accessorizing my Bold since I got it last week. Before I got the BOLD, 3 days before, I ordered the screen protector from bestskinsever.com and my wife thought they shipped it fast since it got here the next day after I got my bold.

I'm on BB Messenger all the time, can't let go of it. I got my brother and his wife hooked on the BB, even my parents. Now I just need to get one for my 5 year old son.

My first BB, too. I absolutely love this phone. Don't know how I survived so long without ever using a BB. Definitely addicted to it. it is never more than an arm's reach away from me at any time. Love all the features and things you can do.

Yeah, this true.

My first BB, and I am an addict. All because my boss was making fun of my Nokia. OK, fine, "sorry" I tell my wife, "have to do it for business".

Driving with the Bold is a challenge. I HAVE to figure out a way to be smart about this thing before I hurt someone or myself.

Does anyone use those windshield mount things?

I am amazed at how good the speech recognition is. Not having to fumble dialing a number IS much safer coupled with handsfree. And the Navigation thing is a superb product for anyone who travels.

Just like you I've been rockin' the Bold for 2.5 months, but it feels more like 2.5 days... I too had a dream about my Bold. It was getting scratched up and melting in my hands, I woke up right away and grabbed my phone! Everything about this phone is A1

I wouldn't say we're addicts, we're more like a group. Kinda like "Apple Users", except we know how to choose a smartphone!

I can not go anywhere with out my phone , I need it , I have everything in there , it helps me with scores (NFL) , it's my newspaper , my movie theater schedule , my calendar , my appointment book , my birthday reminder , my grocery list , my data bank , my way to keep my daughter entertained while my wife does the shopping and we are following her around in a shopping cart

Oh and am I the only one , that watches videos (Seinfeld , American dad , Movies , Married with children , etc) while doing my business in the WC ??

first I thought, hmm well, e-mails on the phone could be nice but now I can't live without it, I am on the internet everytime I can, I even started reading e-books now. I switched from sending texts to sending e-mails instead because it's just so easy...
I can't use the BB messenger, because none of my friends has a BB
but ICQ, MSN and Skype are running permanently on my bold
