I tried it and tossed it after about 10 minutes. It's slower than just setting up gmail as an account and doesn't have any additional functionality that would make it a killer app for me.

If you are referring to the Curve, it's not paired with any other devices. I've also just done a battery pull and that didn't resolve the problem.

I prefer a naked BB :) so no BB condoms or hard cases for me. A nice holster keeps things in good shape though -- much better than shaking around in your pocket with keys and other metal objects.

An obvious troll.

But the reason I went with a BB last week over the new iPhone is that the BB is better suited for business use. One fingered touchscreen typing is slow, awkward, and inefficient.
