Default A very different question

Please Login to Remove!

I am taking three weeks off from work to recharge my batteries. My Blackberry, to which I am addicted, is also my cell phone. I'm afraid that if I carry my blackberry with me as the phone I will be tempted too often to check e-mail. Is there a way that I can sort of disable the ability to check my e-mail, but keep the phone functioning. Is there a way to remove the e-mail icon from the Home Screen.

I'm curious, but why would it take 3 weeks to recharge a battery? ...and why would you take off work to do so?

Also, checking email on your handheld uses up FAR less battery life than using the phone functionality of it.

I'm assuming you are on a BES, you could have them turn off the redirector and say do not forward e-mails to your BlackBerry? If you've got a SIM based GSM BlackBerry, you could just move the SIM Card to some other phone and then it won't log into the BlackBerry service, etc.
