I have a Bold 9000 and my wife has a Blackberry 8703e.. I will be upgrading her soon probably to a 9700.

I upgraded to the Bold 9000 and gave my wife my 8320 (Pearl Flip). She's getting better but it's still a struggle. Even with her previous phone, I think it was a Sony i530 or something like that, she was pretty bad about keeping it charged or on or accessible......

Now my 7 year old daughter is begging for a BB.....I think she has to be 10 before we even consider getting her a cell phone, nevermind a BB....any others have young kids and when did they get a cell/BB??

boyfriend just has a standard LG 300... nothing too crazy. He'd like a BB but has no need for one. He might use his phone 10 minutes a day... and when I get home from work he usually grabs my phone to use the Minnesota Twins app and Word Mole....

Wife: Storm
two (college age) sons: Curves

My wife came over from the dark side... a TREO... went to the curve, then was jealous of my Storm.. or so I told her... and went Storm. Both my boys had Pearls and now love the full qwerty Curve. They don't answer phone calls... only texts/bbms
.. all 4 of us are on BBM... and have a group called "home". Dorky? yep.

And to "Leaf Fan"... my daughter is 11. Got her first phone (hand me down Razr) when she was 9... now has a Samsung Glyde. No BB for her but she needed/needs a phone when we began taking/dropping her at 2 hour long/twice weekly soccer practice. Text/Voice key for piece of mind re: traffic delays for pickup or other unforeseen issues... whether it's soccer/school/other. Nice piece of mind for mom/dad but doesn't supplant the need to be there. knowhuteyemean?

My girlfriend says she hates the BB and would never need/use one. However, every time I put my phone down she is playing BrickBreaker and I cant have my phone back for an hour...I don't know..you figure it out!

The BB Storm is my 4th BB. My hubby got a curve when we were still with AT&T and he liked it (the qwerty keyboard makes texting easier). But he doesn't do much with it other than text...........

When I got the Storm, my DH was going to get another phone until he played with mine for a moment...............then we turned around and went back to Best Buy for him to get a BB Storm also.........

He still doesn't use it in the manner I think it should be used, but hey, he has one, LOL

My wife is on BB #3, a Storm2. She had her pick of any device out there but decided on another BB even after checking out the Moto Droid and a few others. Even my mom has a Curve. :D

I think I love you.

I have a Tour
Hubby has a Tour
Son has a Curve

I gave my brother the 8900 I got from the AT&T WES party, now he's hooked

The in-laws are also hooked.
Sis-in-law has a Pearl
Her hubby has a Curve
Her son has a Pearl
Brother-in-law 1 has an 8703e (poor guy)
His wife has a Pearl
Brother-in-law 2 has an 8900 (his daughter has an iPhone, poor girl)

BBM is one of the biggest ways we all keep in touch.

She currently has a Voyager with VZW. We're assessing what she wants to go with next.

There's nothing "worse" about the iPhone. What works for one may not work for the rest.

Girl is the one that wanted a BB in the first place, now we both have 8310's, and she never gets off her computer..?? Still have no clue why she wanted a BB in the first place.

Wirelessly posted (overwhelmingly stressed)

Got my fiance' onto a BB a couple years ago I had a 7290 switched to 8700 passed it on the her then the evolution began and now she has 8310 and I'm on a 9000!
BBM is crucial for us and our friends most are on BB's as well
Don't see a switch to any other device in the near future other than new BB's

I almost had my wife ready to jump from her moto w755 into a 8330; the main selling point I had her on was the ability for us to have a synchronized common calendar (using Google Calendar + GSync) since our kids have a million appts that we need to shuttle them to. But at the last minute she backed out on the deal and bought herself a fancy paper day organizer and thus we're still stuck with her emailing me events so that I can enter them into my BB.

I have a Storm, my wife has the curve 8330 and my mom just upgraded and got the Storm (right before the Storm2 came out, I told her to wait, but oh well).

We all use them and abuse them.
