It was time for a BlackBerry!

Yes, today I joined the rest of the world and got a blackberry. Woo hoo! Yes, let's all make fun of me and welcome me to the 21st century. : ) I know that it was time for me to mature phone-wise. So it's called the BlackBerry Curve 3G and my number is... haha, just kidding. I certainly don't need my number out there in the blog worId. I kind of wanted to get the iphone but I'm not willing to spend the money to break my contract with Verizon Wireless yet. They are supposedly getting the iphone in July so I'll just wait for that. So far I love this phone! It's a lot more complicated then my last phones but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it eventually.

It's really strange being able to see new emails coming in and of course being able to check in with Facebook from a phone. I still say that nothing beats doing all that internet stuff on a big computer screen but it will come in handy when I'm not at home.

However, despite how convenient and fun this phone is, I will not, I repeat, I will not become one of those people obsessed with their phones and can never stop checking them. I know way too many people like that and it annoys the crap out of me. There are way too many other important things in life than our phones! Right?!

Have you moved over to the BlackBerry/iphone world? Why or why not?


  1. i had a blackberry. for the past year i have had one, and i loved it at first. but then it didnt do what i wanted it to do and then broke. and then it got replaced and that one broke. and then replaced again and when THAT one broke 3 days later, I broke down and got a new phone. It's kinda like the iphone, but for sprint. i've had it 2 days and so far love it. but we will see. the battery sucks compared to my blackberry!

  2. Now I want you to do another post in a couple of months about why you are now one of those people who can't stop checking her crackberry! ;) I said the same thing until I got mine and now I'm one of those people who CAN'T STOP checking her crackberry! They are sooo addictive!

  3. We'll just have to wait and see Diane... Haha
    And Jessica, ugh, that's so frustrating. Hopefully, your new phone that you just got will be for awhile.

  4. I used to have a blackberry, but I only used it as a phone (no email, internet, or whatever). But, my husband made me get the iphone. Yes, he made me because I so wasn't looking forward to touch screen, and now I am one of those people who CANNOT stop checking her phone. I have to put it on vibrate while I'm at home because it drives my husband INSANE, haha.

  5. Thank you for the lovely comment! I am now following you as well :) and sooo jealous that you live in LA-I have always wanted to live there! I still have not joined the smart phone world-I have a LG Envy that barely works cause I've dropped it so many times-pretty much the reason why I've avoided buying an expensive phone. My plan is up in July and I think then I will transition to a Blackberry!

  6. I was looking for your link..for quite some time. I just wanted to follow you back as your profile pic would not lead me to your blog.

    I'm soo glad you left that lovely comment on my blog, so I had the chance to find your awesome site; at last!!

    B :))

  7. I went with the Droid because I have Verizon and I love it minus the battery life sometimes. But going from a phone that didn't have e-mail, internet, or Facebook to one that does is amazing. The whole constantly checking the phone thing is really annoying I like my phone by playing on it gets boring pretty quickly.

  8. thanks for following me. you are my 100th follower!
    xoxo, jamie
    p.s. welcome to the world for blackberry's...i love mine!

  9. I heart my smart phone. Welcome to the addiction.
