Default What do you use it for....

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, so what do you do with your Blackberry...

I txt, email and BBM.

I go onto Facebook and obviously ring folks.

Seems like I don't do much with it really when I write it down eh...

So, what do you do with yours?

What else could I be doing?

Checking your weather.
Driving routes or directions.
Finding a local store.
Listen to music loaded to the device or streaming.
Making notes and reminders for followup to clients.
Checking the latest news.

I could go on, but I probably do TOO much on mine.

When I was using one (and hopefully will have the 9900/9930 soon enough):
  • E-Mail for both work and personal communications
  • Text friends and family
  • BBM friends and family
  • Make and receive phone calls
  • Listen to music while getting ready in the morning
  • Check the weather for the day, week, etc. with BeWeather
  • Track my tasks and projects with MyLifeOrganized
  • Keep notes and other scraps of info with Evernote
  • Keep up with Facebook (somewhat)
  • Keep up with Twitter
  • Keep up with LinkedIn
  • Research while on the go with Bing, Google, etc.
  • Check my bank account while on the go with my mobile banking app
  • Play some games when I have down-time

There is probably more, but I think I'm going to leave the office now. It's a Friday and I feel like it.

Dang. I have something like that on my iPhone but didn't even realize it is available for the BlackBerry. Have to add that to my list for when I move into the 9900/9930.

Poynt will show local gas prices but it's not very up to date in my area.

Yeah. I knew about Poynt and meant to add it to my list. But, like you, I found that Poynt wasn't terribly accurate.
