any input is appreciated!
I carry both a phone and a BlackBerry (with an active phone). Both are on a Cingular Family Plan, so the extra phone only costs me $10/month.
The main reason I have both is because I really don't like the way the BB (7290) feels as a phone -- just personal taste. However, on a recent trip to Asia, I found that Cingular could not activate an unlimited international data plan and international roaming for phone calls on the same device. (At least that's what they said, anyway.) Having the second phone allowed me to have both available.
