I use it for both so as a result I have a love/hate relationship with it because I get a ton of e-mail so I love it during the day but after about 9 p.m. it drives me nutty. I don't even use it on the weekend. Must have boundaries.

I've been debating this issue myself. I have a BB from work but still carry a personal cellphone. I've been considering consolidating down to 1 device.

I've been questioning do I really want to deal with work email on personal time.

Just checking out the results, it seems so odd that more respondents use it exlusively for personal use than exclusively for business use.

Well I hear that you can switch off the push mail on the Pearl and Curve (hope to get that one when it comes out) but with my 7130c, I just have to have a weekend phone.

Last night, for example, I switched from the BB to my Nokia N73 about two hours after I got home from work. I can check my personal e-mail on it -- haven't tried getting work e-mail on it, but, I don't care to -- whenever I want with Gmail and Y! Go apps.

I don't mind having two phones, but, I only carry one at a time. Sounds like you're in a different boat than me.

The other thing is the BlackBerry is a little bulky for me. I'm not a holster type of guy so cellphone easily fits in my jeans pocket. Have to see what the Curve looks like when it comes out.

FYI, (a little off topic) but new 4.2.1 update out today for the 7130c/g. You should be able to switch off the data (and still have phone) with this version.

One for each. I prefer keeping personal stuff off the work BB.
