is it just me or do you check your emails all times of the day. this morning by at least 7 am i had 5 or so emails, and i did not hesitate to write back. currently im in pacific time zone, but go to school in eastern time zone. so i get emails really earlier in the day. even have some stuff for sale on craigslist and i get emails from people at weird times, but i have to write back. the wifey hates it, when i start writing emails at 2 am, and not to mention i dont have my contacts in so i have to squint and hold my bb up to my face with one eye open to read my emails.......but im nuts, i have too.......

yup...I have my BB on silent while in the bedroom. But whenever I wake up I check email and reply to. today I got up at 6am, which for me is early, but I was playing golf, so I had about 6 emails that could have waited, but I replied to them, it's too easy to reply to them, so why not just do it?

My BlackBerry is my alarm so when it wakes me at 6.45am the first thing I do is check my mail! I always have my email enabled on my device as well so evening and weekends I've got my eye on anything I might need to know about (work, BBF, etc)!

well me and my 2 partners keep our bb's on silent all the time so i have gotten into the habit of checking every so often. our biz is nightlife so of course i get emails all times of not.. its funny when i get emails from club managers from vegas or LA the night is ending for them and my morning is just begining... i have a 8 year old daughter who doesnt live with me and i just got her a sk2.. so its a way to stay intouch with everyone from work and my personal life "horaaaay Blackberry!!!"

Same here. My BB is set on Silent at night when I sleep but if I can't sleep (insomniac) then I will briskly check my emails. Might as well or watch TV.

My BB runs 24/7. I have to admit that when I get up to take a wizzzz, I check for email. I will not admit to answering! <vbg>

With contacts in Asia and Europe, e-mail is a 24 / 7 item. My co-workers in Asia will ask if I am sick if they don't see a response before 6 am my time. It may be an addiction but it is my favorite addiction!!
