Arrow BlackBerry quiz!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi fellow Blackberry addicts!

I am writing my dissertation paper at university on BlackBerry usage and addiction so would be really really grateful if you could all help me out by completing my research questionnaire at:

The Profiling of BlackBerry Consumers Survey

there are only 23 questions, it'd help me write my paper, you might find it interesting and i'd be happy to share my results!
Thank you very much,
Jenna x

Thanks, hoping for around 500 replies so thought this forum would be a good place to start, if anyone has any other suggestions on how to reach a large number of BlackBerry users let me know!

So, are you not interested in results from people who carry a corporate Blackberry? I've never carried one that I own.

Nice survey. Friendly suggestions for the future.

Bear in mind that your sample is interested BB users so we may not be in the norm if it matters.

On your Likert scale question #3,(5=strongly agree, 4=agree, 3=neither agree nor disagree, 2=disagree, 1=strongly disagree), but your numbers go in the opposite direction.

Well done!!!

To the OP,

I am 17 years of age and I just took your quiz. When I got to the Demographics section, it said the since I was 17 or under, I needed to not proceed with your survey, but I could fill out the remaining questions on the page, so I did, and then when I clicked next, it said I was done. I had filled out most of the survey and didn't want the to go to waste. I wasn't sure if that's what you wanted or not. Sorry if this skews your results.

SuperECS

If this is NOT what you wanted, and the anyone under the age of 18 shouldn't take the survey, I think that you should state that BEFORE the quiz is taken.

Again, sorry if my confusion has skewed your results.

sorry the demographics section got moved to the end of the survey at the last minute to make it less boring!
I just had to include that sentence to comply with university ethics. Apparently you are classed as a vulnerable respondent group because of your age and since anyone who has access to the internet can take the survey I have to discourage people under 18 not to complete it.

But thank you very much for completing my survey!

Yes I am interested in everyone who has a BlackBerry's opinions, business and personal users, it's fine if you don't own it yourself. Thanks!

To discourage under 18 participants because of the legalities with parental consent and institutional review? If so, I understand the dilemma
