Does your partner/wife have a BB as well
Just wanted to guage here whose partners have a BB as well or are they still traditional mobile phone users or even worse in the iphone camp !

I "converted" my wife last week from an traditional brick phone to a BB. Lets hope she appreciates it ! :oops:

I got my wife off her Razor and onto an 8100. She hated it at first then came to really like it......then she went and bought an Iphone. ugh.

I originally got my wife a samsung rant but she played with my 8330 so much I bought her one for her birthday. She's been downloading different themes the last few days and experimenting with the settings. I think she's hooked now!

Another BB converting success story.

Yep. We both just moved from 9000s to 9700s. Prior to that, she was using a Windows phone. Every time I tell her I am going to get her something other than a BlackBerry, she pitches a fit. She is definitely hooked!

Wirelessly posted (8820)

Got my wife an 8100 for Christmas three years ago, and it still works like a champ. Daughter has an 8820, and they BBM all the time.

Mine wont touch one, says its too complicated

My wife has a freakin' iPhone! Can you believe it?! I'm ashamed. :oops:

The Missus has a Touch Pro II that she loves...prior to that, a Wing...and before that a series of Treo devices. She tried an 8800 for about a week, didn't like it. She's a touch screen junkie.

The things you find about about people after you marry them...

Your wife sounds like she at least knows what's what. Mine comes to me with "honey, I can't get the thingy to work." Turns out she was trying to shove a USB cable into a FireWire port. I had no words.

My wife wouldnt take one. She has the free junky Motorola we got from VZW.
My co-worker wanted the Storm, so he bought one for him and his wife (hoping she would not be mad for him getting the new Storm).
Now, she's a true addict, and has a cow if she cant find her Storm.

My wife got an 8220 the same weekend I got my 9700. So far she likes it, but her company IT people are being idiotically slow about getting her set up on their BES.

VIOLATOR 11-23-2009 08:55 PM

I gave my wife my Curve 8310 when I got my BOLD.

She stills uses it as just a phone but I can't get it back because she loves the QWERTY :/

Keep trying to show her how productive a tool it can be for her but she says "I don't have time for all that"?

Woman makes me crazy sometimes! LOL!!

My boyfriend just got a second phone from his boss after the first one pooped out, which is coincidentlly the phone I just left for my blackberry.

He only likes plain phones, he wasn't very supportive of me getting blackberry either haha. He's also a carpenter, so he wants something he doesn't have to be delicate with or treat all that well.

Maybe I'll turn him one day, but I don't see that day coming anytime soon.

My wife and thirteen year-old daughter both have Storms. My life is eaiser this way. I like them to have BB's. I think another benefit is my daughter is learning more about technology too.

CoDudette 11-24-2009 03:55 AM

I was the first in the family to get a pearl. the entire family was like.. WTF are you getting that for?! and they realised that i was very happy with it owing to the fact that i could do everything on it.

my dad and brother had sony ericssons and i set up the BB software for their phones and they were happy. but long before i converted them?
I showed them the bold. they fell in love, and then we got 3 bolds, and dad and bro are hooked. and i gave my mom the old pearl to get a feel of a bb. she was quite pleased and the next thing we know, she wanted a bold. which we got her.

now we're all 4 bb addicts. :D all 4 of us are on BBM which is SUCH a relief.
Success :).

Yep. BBM is something I fought using for a long time. Call it being stubborn. Now, I use it daily. It really is convenient.

My dad couldn't understand why we needed it.

then one fine day, he just started using it on his own. and he hasn't quit since. it's really funny to see him on bbm, however... he does have the most random conversations with me and in the dead of night when i'm out and maybe not in my elements... it doesn't work in my favour.:oops:

My wife has an 8320, same as mine. We bought them and converted ourselves at the same time! We're hooke, needless to say...
