Default Anyone Carry 2 BlackBerry's?

Please Login to Remove!

While I HIGHLY anticipate the release of the Bold here in America, I currently am using an unlocked 8700c for my work phone. The Bold will replace my 1st Generation iPhone as my personal device, but I am trying to decide if I want to replace my 8700c with something else, or if I should carry two berries.

Just curious to know if anyone else does this, or if I truly am just sick as my wife likes to say.

It is NOT unusual to use 2 berries but it sometimes become difficult to manage 2 phones .. both of which are a little bulky in nature. But if your work allows you to use the bold even for personal use, i think the bold should be capable of handling all your work requirements as well as personal stuff.

Of course iPhone is a different league altogether. I personally feel there user interface or look n feel for some of the general usage things like music player, browser is a little bit better to look (BBF Mods - Please do not crucify me for this )

I personally don't carry two active Berrys, but I know people who do-usually a Pearl and one of the Qwerty based models.

I do keep a backup in a desk drawer "just in case".

I sure wish they would develop a BB that can have two sim cards. One sim for work, and one sim for personal....That would be sweet.

I carry a Curve for work and a non-berry for personal. However, once the Bold comes out, I will use that for my personal. I will be covered in berries.

I have 1 for work and 1 for personal.

During the day, my personal one stays on my desk and I carry the work one around with me. In the evenings and on the weekend, the work one stays on the counter and I carry the personal one with me. Unless I'm on call that week, then both both go with me.

Personal Pearl-BIS Work 8830-BES. No problems with the different keyboards. Different audible signals for the two Blackberrys. I'm hooked.

I am so excited to know that there are others with the same addiction that I have. I guess Crackberries really do exist.

I carry a Curve for my personal BB and carry a 7290 for work. Hate the 7290, it's heavy and makes me unbalanced with the curve on one side and it on the other.

Very interesting to hear everyones response so far. Makes me re-think whether or not I want to get rid of my 8700c for a KRZR or some other flip phone.
